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 March

"As we enter 2020, it's clear low rates are stimulating an increase in demand which is why this normally restful time of the year is busy," said Shelley Specchio, MIBOR CEO. "There are buyers in the market who are ready to make a move and do so quickly."

Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, an internationally acclaimed economist and public speaker, says, "As recently as March of 2017, less than three years ago, inventory at 2.4 months would have been a record low for the cycle; now, amazingly, it's at that level in January when the market is normally at a slow point in the year!"

Year-over-Year data for January:

  • Median sales price increased 6.8% to $181,500
  • Average days on market was increased 3.1 days to 60.
  • Current active listings decreased to 4,392
