2020 Indianapolis Real Estate Market Update

 

2019 was another stellar year for the Indianapolis real estate market and the rumors are true - homes still sell in the cold months.

Year over year numbers haven't been fully released yet, but when we can take a general snapshot of what 2019 looked like compared to 2018, some of the numbers are staggering.

Active inventory as recent as May of 2015 was 12,583 homes.  Today, it sits at under 5,000.  Builders can't build...

It can be used to create texture, sleek lines, and even create three dimensional features when placed above a main backdrop. Modern wood paneling helps a space in a home stand out, especially areas such as the kitchen or bathroom. As mentioned above, this look invites a refreshing feeling into a space.
