Indiana housing market

Homes in Indiana, the Hoosier State, are among the most affordable in the U.S. Indi...anans only spend ~17% of their incomes on homes, which is meaningfully less than the national average spend. Indiana's enviable affordability is driven by low home prices compared to national averages. Indiana has seen home prices accelerate in recent years, although the increase has been at a slower rate than national averages. The housing market is particularly hot in Hamilton County, where Indianapolis suburbs like Carmel are very desirable places to live.
