Indianapolis is a world-class city with Midwestern hospitality. The best of all worlds combine to give both new and old residents a great place to make their home. Low cost of living, world-class culture, sports and recreation,  and exceptionally affordable real estate make relocation from other pricey areas of the country a very appealing and logical move to make.


If you are looking to escape high cost of living, Indianapolis is a smart move. Did you know that if you make a salary of $50,000 a year in Indianapolis you would have to make approximately $81,000 in Los Angeles to live the equivalent lifestyle? And in New York it's $120,000 a year to have the same lifestyle. The mix of jobs, entertainment, housing choices, and friendliness of the city makes Indianapolis relocation a great choice when making a move.

Some of the largest employers in Indianapolis include Eli Lily Company, Clarian Health Partners, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), and St. Vincent Hospital and Health. All of these businesses have over 6,500 employees living in the Indianapolis vicinity. Job growth in Indianapolis is steady with a median income of just over $40,000. Plus, if owning real estate has always been a dream of yours, you will be happy to know that 87% of the homes bought within the last year were to households that earned average annual salaries in Indianapolis.
Another perk of Indianapolis relocation is that the entertainment opportunities are endless! Indianapolis is home to a number of unique events such as the Indy Jazz Festival, Indianapolis Black Expo, and the Taste of Indianapolis. Each season brings with it annual celebrations, festivals, and events. During the winter Clowes Hall on the Butler University campus presents their annual ballet, The Nutcracker. As things warm up in the spring, Hoosiers get excited to root for their favorite college basketball teams. Indianapolis often hosts the Final Four NCAA Basketball competition. In the summertime, Indianapolis comes alive with outdoor big-name concerts at The Lawn at The White River and Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville. When the season begins to change again, autumn brings fun events such as haunted houses, The Heartland Film Festival, and much more!
