The state capital of Indiana and the nation’s twelfth largest metropolitan area, has developed into one of the nation’s hottest markets for residential real estate investment. Three major factors enhance the market’s attractiveness.
Indianapolis has proven less sensitive to the boom-bust price volatility that periodically afflicts many other markets, most recently in 2008-9. While unattractive to speculators, many real estate investors are attracted to the lower risk and more sustainable growth derived from such stability.
The combination of fiscally-responsible governance and a vibrant regional economy focused on the life sciences, engineering and logistics, and underpinned by elite universities, has produced one of the nation’s lowest unemployment rates.
With a booming young population as the nation’s #1 top city for college graduates, a high quality of life and unsurpassed housing affordability, the Indianapolis real estate market is poised for continued strong growth.
