INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – According to F.C. Tucker Co.’s March real estate reporting, the central Indiana real estate market remains strong but quiet. The company’s statistics reveal that home sales experienced a slight dip in March while home prices continued to see an increase. The company says inventory continues to decrease.

Jim Litten, chief executive officer of F.C. Tucker said, “Despite the financial uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Central Indiana real estate market remained active in March. Inventory continues to remain low, prompting a continued increase in home sale prices.”
