Cost of Living
“What Indianapolis reflects is the best of both worlds – all the sophistication of a modern metropolis, while retaining its hometown Hoosier demeanor.”
– Home & Away Magazine
Indianapolis is one of the least expensive major cities in the U.S., according to the National Association of Home Builders, which cites the Indianapolis MSA as the most affordable housing community in the nation with more than one million residents. A variety of housing options exist, including new and existing suburban neighborhoods and luxury condos downtown. And with property taxes capped at one percent, residents can be assured that the Indianapolis region will remain the most affordable metropolitan area to live and work.
Of particular note, the Indianapolis region's index is 91.3 for 2nd Quarter 2013, or nearly 10 percent below the national average for cost of living for the entire U.S.--not just major metropolitan areas. That's a major selling point for many companies looking to locate a facility. It's not only that we offer a lower cost of doing business, but it more affordable for employees to live here as well.
