County housing prices rise, sales lag

Home prices in Johnson County were higher in July compared to a year ago, but the number of homes sold decreased over 2013’s figures.

In Johnson County, home sales dropped from 231 in July 2013 to 220 last month, or about a 5 percent drop, according to statistics released by F.C. Tucker Co. of Indianapolis.

That decrease was smaller than the 14 percent decline among all nine central Indiana counties. Of those counties, only Madison and Shelby counties had an increase in home sales from a year ago.
