And of course our 3 year price graph:

As you can see Fishers is off to a great start in terms of number of homes sold.  We saw a 26% and 32% increase in the numbers of homes in Fishers sold in 2012.  The average sales prices is a mixed bag with a 9% increase in January and an 8% decrease in February.  Average sales price can be a bit and it more prone to fluctuations that the number of homes sold so we will have to wait for a little more date before we call this one. 

One thing I did notice is that for some reason the number of foreclosures/short sales in the Fishers market shot up in February.  Typically, Fishers see anywhere from 10-15% of all homes sold as a result of foreclosures / short sales.  However, in February 30% of all homes sold in Fishers Indiana were a result of the distressed market.  This is something to watch very closely as they are predicting an increase in foreclosure activity since the Robo Signing debate has been settled. 

Foreclosures aside, Fishers appears to be rebounding like the other communities we have reported on so far.  The number of homes selling appears to be steadily increasing and the market fundamentals remain strong.  The absorption rate is great at 5.59 month’s supply of homes currently on the market and the days on the market is down 6% over last year.  This should be a good year for Fishers real estate.
