So here's my question;
The median home value in Indianapolis is one of the lowest in the country, but when I compare the types of homes to other places (city/states) ie, 200-250k the homes seem lacking. Even though the median income in Indianapolis is higher than other places. This is what confuses me.
To explain more of what I mean. When I look at homes in let's say the greater Portland, OR area. I see many homes that just do not have much curb appeal. Oregon is a place where even Phil Knight dresses in a pair of jeans and a t shirt to work. In Oregon their cars and homes depict much of the same. I get that. Although, I don't think Indianapolis is the same. Meaning it doesn't depict the slacker image that Portland tends to be proud of.

I am curious if you agree or not with this statement and if so why you think this is? Sorry if this comes off as rude. I don't mean it to be. I just assumed since the median home value in Indy is so great that if I were to up the value to 200-250k that I would find some extremely nice homes like you may find in other parts of the country that are similar in population ie., Columbus, OH.
