Positive Report from Indiana Realtors

Share this post

Home sales continue to climb in Indiana. According to the monthly Indiana Real Estate Markets Report released Monday by the state's REALTORS® the number of existing, single-family homes sold last month statewide increased 14.3 percent when compared with September 2012. The report also showed the median sale price of those 6,342 homes is $123,500 – a 2.9 percent increase from the same month of last year.
Monday's report "contains some of the best news we’ve shared,” said Kevin Kirkpatrick, 2013 President of the Indiana Association of REALTORS®. “Fall usually brings a slowdown to housing markets and while September followed that seasonal trend, home sales and prices across Indiana were significantly higher than the same month of the last two years. Statewide, we are well past the recovery stage and appear to be moving toward a stable, balanced marketplace. Whether we fully achieve that status depends on real employment and wage growth, as well as consumer confidence."
