(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) — There were 7,485 existing Indiana homes sold during April, up 10.9 percent from a year ago. This data is found in the Indiana Real Estate Markets Report today released by the state’s REALTORS®.
Other statewide year-over-year comparisons (April 2016 vs. April 2015) show:
- The number of pending home sales increased 2.5% to 8,426
- The percent of original list price received increased 1% to 95.2%
- Average days on market through April was 61 days
- The number of new listings decreased 9.7% to 11,414
“The 2016 housing market is much more intense than a year ago,” said Shelbyville’s Nancy Smith, 2016 President of the Indiana Association of REALTORS®. “Low inventory continues to put upward pressure on prices. Now that spring has sprung, heavy open house traffic and multiple offer situations are likely to keep our members busy. We also expect to see price appreciation and a shortage of supply continue through summer.”
