For the seventh month, Bartholomew and Jennings counties are included in the central Indiana region covered by MIBOR bringing the data count from 13 counties to 15 counties. That addition in February does prevent a true February to February comparison, however, in February the total number of closed sales in both counties combined was 85 of the region’s 1,984 closed sales.
