And as always our 3 year price chart:


The moral of story in the Indianapolis real estate for 2011 is pretty much flat with a trend towards growth in the number of homes sold. While the number of homes sold is actually down 6% over last year, this was due to the first part of 2011. As you can see from the month by month numbers the number of homes sold has seen an increase for the past 6 months. The average sales price is a bit more jumpy and sporadic but the average sales price for the year is unchanged since 2010. In this market and with 36% of all sales coming from “distressed” properties, you really can’t ask for too much more than that. There are certainly a ton of factors that contribute to the real estate market and economy as a whole but there are several reasons for optimism in the real estate market in Indianapolis for 2012. Stay tuned.
