INDIANA REALTORS®: JANUARY’S SEVERE WEATHER HAMPERS HOME SALES STATEWIDE

Home values hold their own with year-over-year increases in the average and median sale price
 
(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – The Indiana Real Estate Markets Report today released by the state’s REALTORS® shows that
statewide, when comparing January 2014 to January 2013, the following occurred:
 
? The number of closed home sales decreased 9.1 percent to 3,839,
? The median sale price of those homes increased 2.3 percent to $110,500,
? The average sale price increased 4.8 percent to $135,618,
? The percent or original list price received increased 1.7 percent to 91.4 percent,
? The number of pending home sales decreased 19.8 percent to 4,122, and
? The number of new listings decreased 20.7 percent to 6,916.
 
“Last month we reported the fundamentals of most housing markets across the state strong. But local housing markets
were no match for Mother Nature who gave us one of the snowiest, coldest Januarys on record, and delayed closings
and prevented showings all over Indiana,” said Kevin Eastridge, 2014 President of the Indiana Association of REALTORS®
and Owner/Principal Broker of the Evansville-based F.C. Tucker Emge REALTORS®.
 
“Dangerous weather conditions didn’t stop with January’s end, so we expect year-over-year comparisons to lag for at
least the next couple of months. The good news is that home values held their own and the pent-up demand could make
the spring and summer very busy if and only if the inventory is present. Opportunity is knocking loudly on the doors of
potential sellers,” concluded Eastridge.
 
Anyone looking to buy, sell or invest should start with the sortable county tables of this report and then talk to a local
REALTOR® who can give the most insight into what’s happening in a neighborhood, city or school district.
