Marketwatch Sept. 2020
Monthly real estate stats from F.C. Tucker Company showed double-digit home sales and price increases for September 2020 on the back of a significant inventory shortage:–
In September 2020, 4,170 central Indiana homes were purchased, up 19.1 percent from the 3,500 sold in September 2019. Specifically:
Year-to-date home sale prices continued to increase, despite a substantial inventory shortage.
Every county saw home inventory decreases of 33 percent or higher. The 16-county area experienced a 44.7 percent decrease last month, with only 3,673 homes listed in September 2020. That represents 2,973 fewer homes available for sale than in September 2019.
“The increase in the number of homes sold is higher than it’s been since February, indicating that the central Indiana real estate market is alive and well,” said Jim Litten, CEO of F.C. Tucker Company. “However, the record-low housing inventory, together with rising sale prices, make it challenging for buyers to find a home that fits their family’s needs and budget.”
Of the pended home sales in the region last month, 4 were priced $2,000,000 or higher; 37 were priced $1,000,000 to $1,999,999; 240 were priced $500,000 to $999,999; 804 were priced $300,000 to $499,999; 1,199 were priced $200,000 to $299,999; 1,464 were priced $100,000 to $199,999; and 422 were priced at $99,999 or less.
