Area home sales fall in month of June

Local home sales were down for the month of June but still on the rise for the year so far.

Last month, 209 homes were sold in Johnson County, a nearly 5 percent decrease from June 2015, according to a report from Indianapolis-based real estate company F.C. Tucker Co.

But so far this year, local home sales are up 9 percent, which is higher than the nearly 5 percent average increase among all central Indiana counties, according to the report.

Johnson County was one of a few central Indiana counties that had a drop in sales last month, compared to the year before. Across central Indiana, home sales increased less than 1 percent.

Real estate officials say homes continue to be in demand, as the number of houses on the market fall and prices increase, according to a news release from F.C. Tucker.

In Johnson County, the number of homes available for sale was down to 679 last month, a nearly 26 percent drop from the same time last year.

And home prices are up significantly.

Across central Indiana, the average sales price was $185,459, a 2 percent increase from last year.

In Johnson County, the average sales price of $187,709 was up 9 percent from last year, the report said.
