“The weather might be cooling off but the housing markets across Indiana are on fire,” said Shelbyville’s Nancy Smith, 2016 president of the Indiana Association of REALTORS®. “Contracts are being signed at a remarkable pace for this time of year, and we saw new listings increase this month for the first time since March. It’s a welcome sign more homeowners are considering this winter a good time to list given the buyer traffic we’re seeing in many markets.”

The Indiana Real Estate Markets Report obtains data from 9 of the state’s 10 Multiple Listing Services (MLSs), including the Broker Listing Cooperative® (BLC®) in central Indiana. To date, the report represents 98 percent of the housing market statewide and 91 of 92 Indiana counties.
