Greenwood, IN, for example, is a prosperous city with multiple opportunities for landlords and residents alike. For the last few years, Indianapolis and the suburbs around it continue to thrive economically. With consistent job increases and more homes being built every year, property managers should look to Indiana as a great place to invest in a rental property.

Economic Growth

Indiana has seen steady job growth recently, with just over 44,000 jobs added between September 2015 and September 2016. These facts come from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Stats from the Indiana Business Research Center and the IU Center for Econometric Model Research show that for the next two years, Indiana is projected to add 60,000 jobs and the unemployment rate will decrease. This is great news for those involved in rental property management. Rental property owners know that the more jobs that are created, the more people will move to the area and the demand to lease a rental property will increase. Those who live in Indiana will also see a growth in their personal income that will outpace the U.S. over the next two years.

That means there are more single-family homes to buy or lease in Indiana compared to the nation, and more houses are being built every day. Not only that, but most houses in Indiana are affordable, with a median sales price of about $140,000 in 2016.
