“At the halfway point of 2016, we’re still seeing an inventory shortage in many markets,” said Shelbyville’s Nancy Smith, 2016 President of the Indiana Association of REALTORS®. “But I’ve also talked to several REALTORS® around the state who say their inventory has picked up this month. Sales usually peak in June or July, but this year may break the trend given how hot the market has been lately.”
The Indiana Real Estate Markets Report obtains data from 11 of the state’s 12 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.
