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 August

For the third month in a row, median sales price has hit a price record at $200,295 - a 10.1% increase from July 2018. Outside of price, all other changes are relatively small, however, after three months of decline... closed sales did increase 3.6% over last year to 3,582. This is a welcomed sign for both buyers and sellers alike.

Year-over-Year data for July:

  • Median sales price increased 10.1% to $200,295
  • Average days on market is unchanged at 36 days
  • Current active listings decreased to 6,015
