2016: Lafayette’s Best Year in Real Estate

2016: Lafayette’s Best Year in Real Estate

Lafayette, Indiana – one of America’s Hottest Real Estate Markets! Recently, per Realtor.com, Lafayette, Indiana was named as one of the nation’s HOTTEST real estate markets for March 2016.  Our market was #20 out of #20 nationwide as a market where buyers are eager and homes are selling fast—listings get two to five times more views than the national average, and homes sell one or two months faster than in the rest of the country.  The median list price continued its upward climb.  Meanwhile, the inventory of homes for sale is increasing more steadily—but still not as fast as the high demand from buyers.  Obviously, the heightened interest for a limited supply of housing is pushing up home prices.

In their March Housing Outlook Report, Freddie Mac explained: “Despite the challenges facing the housing market, we expect this to be the best year for housing in a decade. Home sales, housing starts, and house prices will reach their highest level since 2006 according to our latest forecast…Challenges remain, with low housing supply and declining affordability being a key concern in many markets, but on balance, the housing markets in the U.S. are poised for the best year since 2006.”   In 2015, home prices nationally rose 4%, following a 6.4% hike in 2014, and, home values rose in 236 of...
