Three major metro areas in Indiana are marked as Improving Housing Markets.

The National Association of Home Builders has added 35 new metro areas to their list of 'Improving Housing Markets'. Three of those cities are in Indiana: Elkhart, Lafeyette and Indianapolis. The complete list of 76 cites are in only 31 states and the District of Columbia.

Though Bloomington is too small to be in the radar screen for this type of data, it is a great sign that our neighboring communities are starting to be noticed for healthy recovery.  The criteria that was used to compile the list: number of housing permits, home prices and employment monitored over six months.
