Fishers, Indiana = Best Place to Live

Hey, Fishers – what are you doing right?

Not long ago, Fishers was ranked by Money Magazine as #8 among the “Best Places to Live” in America”. What did they say?  “This Indiana town offers a winning combination of low-cost houses (you can snag a three-bedroom for less than $150,000), easy access to the big city, and good schools. Plus, Fishers is booming. Development abounds and fully 1,600 jobs were created here last year; major employers include Sallie Mae and medical device firm Roche Diagnostics. True, Fishers will never put anyone in mind of a quaint New England village. But thanks to its myriad advantages, including lots of community spirit, residents aren’t complaining.”

Business Week named Fishers the best place to raise your kids in Indiana, citing it as “the state’s fastest-growing community and among its most affluent. New residents move to Fishers for its top-ranked schools and proximity to major highways, airports, and metros.”

And now I see a report today that has ranked Fishers No. 9 on the best 25 list of growing communities where residents’ incomes go the furthest, particularly in the housing market.  CNNMoney stated that “Fishers has a higher median home price – $174,296 – but offers a good bargain. The housing market here includes some estate-sized homes of 10,000 square feet or more, which sell for a relatively reasonable low seven figures.”

I’ve personally seen Fishers grow from what I thought would be another low-rent suburb into a real highlight among places to go.  The annual Freedom Festival is incredible, as is its Summer concert series. The town has done a great job of managing its growth and turning itself into a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

Carpenter’s Fishers office has enjoyed the fruits of Fishers’ recent growth, helping hundreds of Fishers new and old residents find their dream home.  Find out more about Fishers and see Fishers homes for sale on’s special Fishers section.
