Bloomington's dynamic housing market presents a wealth of diverse residential and investment opportunities. Home purchasers will find a surprisingly wide variation in available housing types from affordable townhomes, condominiums and bungalows ideal for first-time homebuyers and empty nesters, to more lavish new construction and tastefully appointed mature homes.
These extensive options allow for a healthy market accessible to people of nearly all income levels. The Center for Real Estate Studies in the Indiana University Kelly School of Business reported that 40% of the homes purchased during the first half of 1997 sold for less than $100,000 on a median price of $114,000 - which is 7% below the national average of $123,000.This makes Bloomington a reasonable choice for relocation.
