The Northwest Indiana residential real estate market remained strong as the region transitioned into fall with a steady increase of homes sold in both Porter, Lake and LaPorte counties, reports Jeanne Sommer, broker/owner of CENTURY 21 Alliance Group.
“The market continued its upward trend with an increase in residential home sales and average price, as well as a decrease in days to sell,” Sommer said.
In addition, the housing inventory for Porter County was 4.44 months of supply in October and Lake County was at 4.85 months of supply. LaPorte County came in at 6.15.
“A 6 month supply of homes indicates a healthy market, so these numbers show that we are in a very good market,” explained Nick Sommer, owner of CENTURY 21 Alliance Group.
Through October the number of homes sold in Porter County was up 9% over last year, while the average sales price increased 1%. In addition, the average amount of days a home was on the market, another key factor in the health of a market, decreased.
Lake County saw similar changes in activity. The number of homes sold in Lake County increased 8% and the average sales price increased 1%. In addition, the average number of days to sell decreased.
LaPorte County also saw an increase of sales up to 7%. The average sales price also increased by 5% while the average days on the market decreased.
