Indy Housing Market Update

Welcome again to another issue of the Indy Housing Market Update... where I briefly summarize the current trends of our local housing market, and provide a link to the latest home sale statistics from our local board, the Mid-Indiana Board of Realtors (MIBOR).

Hot Topics for the Month of April

"The market showed that buyers remain eager to purchase homes," said Shelley Specchio, MIBOR CEO. Median sales prices compared to last year have increased by at least 9.4% for 5 of the last 8 months and currently stand at $188,490, which is high comparatively for this time of year. These metrics, along with the rise in new listings are indicative of confidence in the market."

Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, an internationally acclaimed economist and public speaker, points out, "The combination of solid sales, significant price appreciation and low inventory levels are what we are seeing in most cities across the country. We saw great job growth and low interest rates in December, January and February and it shows in an extremely tight market."

Year-over-Year data for February:

  • Median sales price increased 9.6% to $188,490
  • Average days on market decreased 1.9% to 59 days
  • Current active listings decreased to 3,883
