Established in May 2009 by the Indiana Association of REALTORS® (IAR), the "Indiana Real Estate Markets Report" was the first-ever county-by-county comparison of existing single-family home sales in Indiana. In March 2010, IAR added statistics on other types of existing detached single-family (DSF) home sales – condominiums, duplexes, townhomes, mobile homes, etc. – to the Report.
The Report became even more robust in August 2010. Consumers can now see how the statewide housing market is performing according to eight different indicators, each with one-month and year-to-date comparisons, as well as a historical look (below). Consumers also have access to specific county information for 91 of Indiana’s 92 counties in a sortable table format (below).
At the same time these additions were made to the Report, IAR improved its data processing, refining its handling and analytical processes that produce the statistics. As a result, there are some minor revisions to the historical looks. The consistency that allows comparisons over time and across counties remains intact.
