Entrepreneur, native Hoosier, and Country Living contributor Graham Brown is proud of a lot of things about his home state of Indiana. The fertile corn fields, the entertaining fairs and festivals, the “small town vibe”, and even his favorite local diner—Brown’s reasons to be a proud Hoosier are many and various.
Indiana has much more to offer, however. When it comes to livability, the state has its share of top-ranked cities. In 2012, the city of Carmel led nine other contenders in Money Magazine’s “Best Places to Live” list. The magazine hailed Carmel as the top place to live because of its excellent schools, impressive housing variety, and its dedicated urban planning team. Carmel was again honored for its quality of life in 2014, when it was awarded the third spot on that same livability list.
The capital city of Indianapolis also provides myriad reasons to relocate to the state. Firstly, there’s the well-known “Hoosier Hospitality” that highlights small-town values in a big city. Indianapolis also boasts the variety of four distinct seasons, a downtown area that seldom sees traffic gridlock, a vibrant fine arts scene, and to top everything off, affordable housing costs. Prices of Indianapolis homes compare very favorably with prices in other big cities, and trusted real estate agents like those at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services – The Tim O’Connor Team can help you find the home that fits your budget and preferences.
Certainly, looking for a home is a personal experience that involves much more than just crunching the numbers. If you have school-aged children, you would want a property close to quality schools while also being reasonably near your workplace. You may also want to consider proximity to such amenities as parks, restaurants, and shopping centers. If you’re an avid sports fan, you might be attracted by the availability of spectator sports like professional football and major league baseball in nearby Cincinnati.
Whatever your tastes are in architectural style and landscaping, you’ll be sure to find a house for sale in Indianapolis that matches the vision of your dream home. To find that perfect property which combines everything you want in one home, the best way to start is by working with a real estate team having the right skills, network, and tools, plus a commitment to your satisfaction.
