For the eighth month, Bartholomew and Jennings counties are included in the central Indiana region covered by MIBOR bringing the data count from 13 counties to 15 counties. That addition in March does prevent a true March to March comparison, however, in March the total number of closed sales in both counties combined was 132 of the region’s 2,660 closed sales.

Sale prices for March continue to rise. The median sales price increased by 4.9 percent to $156,000 and average sales price up 4.0 percent to $189,237. For the quarter ending in March, median sales price is up 7.0 percent and average sales price increased 6.6 percent.

Months of inventory has slightly decreased to 2.9 months.
