Residential Real Estate: Marketplace

Housing Sales



March 1 – May 31


The housing market is hot but the challenge is a lack of inventory, said F.C. Tucker Co. President Jim Litten. Currently, there are about 9,000 listings in central Indiana, although about 20 percent of those are under contract with an agent accepting backup offers. Litten said that’s only about a two- to three-month supply of inventory. In comparison, five years ago there were about 19,000 homes for sale.•
