Hoosier Rental Home Investment Markets

hoosierHoosier is the official demonym for a resident of the U.S. state of Indiana. The origin of the term was in general use by the 1840s, having been popularized by Richmond resident John Finley's 1833 poem "The Hoosier's Nest". Anyone born in Indiana or a resident at the time is considered to be a Hoosier. Indiana adopted the nickname "The Hoosier State" more than 150 years ago. "Hoosier" is used in the names of numerous Indiana-based businesses and organizations. "Hoosiers" is also the name of the Indiana University athletic teams. -Wikipedia

Comparing housing costs, Indiana typically has quite stable housing values. In other words, Indiana homeowners usually experience small swings in value as economic conditions and world events take hold year to year.

As Indiana’s economy continues to grow with more jobs and better wages, expect positive results for the housing market. Should national trends drop, Hoosiers will still fare well compared to less stable parts of the country.
