Homes for Sale in Indianapolis
by Richard Hill, Ph.D.
I lived just north of Indianapolis for seven years, and I saw
it close up and personal as the Heart of the heartland, the dream
city getaway from the usual urban rat race. My kids are grown
now, but if I had still had school-agers, I’d be right back
looking for homes for sale in Indianapolis.
Oh, yeah? Give me one good reason you’d be looking for homes
for sale in Indianapolis!
I’ll give you more than one. Besides still having the wholesome,
kid friendly atmosphere that has all but disappeared in most of
the country (and even in most of the Heartland) Indianapolis is
inexpensive and friendly, with all the amenities of the big city
without the dog-eat-dog culture. And Indy (as the locals call
it) has more: four seasons, relatively mild weather, a relaxed
life pace, friendly folks, recreation, business opportunities,
major league football (The Colts) and basketball (The Pacers),
and a LOW cost of living. Gas, food, and other staples are cheaper
in Indiana than almost any city in the U.S.
Best of all, homes for sale in Indianapolis are eye-popping bargains
compared to most urban areas. How about a new, 2500 square foot
home in the high one-hundred thousands? How about an older place in the
country (but within commuting distance of town) on a HUGE lot
(we’re talking an acre, or even five acres) for even less
than that? single-residence lots have so much property than EVERYONE
has a riding lawnmower. After basketball, riding lawnmowing seems
to be the local sport!
Homes for Sale in Indianapolis: how to find one
My neighbor across the street in San Diego was offered a job in
Indy, and he’s making the move. With a little web footwork,
he found dozens of homes for sale in Indianapolis. If, like him,
you’re thinking of moving to the I-Town, how can you find
the homes for sale?
In Indianapolis, you can choose from state-of-the arts abodes
in upscale Carmel to stately turn-of-the-century bargains
closer to the center of town. Check out the websites for realtors---they’ll
be glad to hear from you. Indy is expanding fast, and there are
plenty of new homes going up, which is good for older-home pricing.
With a little web surfing through the homes for sale in Indianapolis,
you’ll see it’s a buyer’s market nowadays---some
builders and sellers are even giving rebates ala the new car deals!
