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 October

"Typical to what we have seen for the last several months, all supply and demand interaction metrics remain very high while inventory continues to decline," said Shelly Specchio, MIBOR CEO. "However, sales activity in the region continues to climb giving us hope for the winter months ahead."

Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, an internationally acclaimed economist and public speaker, commented, "Nationally, despite record prices, buyers remain eager to purchase, partly because both unemployment and mortgage rates are low. Demand, as measured by sales and pending sales, remains strong."

Year-over-Year data for August:

  • Median sales price increased 9.9% to $199,000
  • Average days on market is unchanged at 38 days
