Jesus Christ you need a car if you're in Indianapolis. I've lived here for 20 years.
#Wes Groleau on Aug 10, 2016 :
I lived in Fort Wayne for twenty years and I have been in Indianapolis several times. I do not believe one needs a car there. I haven't owned a car for six years.

It is difficult to contribute to this information. Most people buy house rather than apartments or condominiums. I live in a 3 bed/2 bath home that is nothing special and it might sell for $150 thousand (US) as of this writing. But in my area, I'm the minority. Less than a mile away there are homes that are much larger and nicer that could sell for $500-750 thousand (US). Another issue is transportation. Indiana is seriously lacking in public transportation so you must have a car. A Honda Civic will run about $22,000 to purchase but registration for it will cost you maybe $500 (US) and decrease annually. Auto insurance may run $500-1000 (US) depending on your driving record. Two people live in my house and we pay an average for monthly utilities: $35/water&sewer ; $60 electricity ; $75 for gas heat, water heater, stove, and dryer. If this looks like good information for an Aussie to consider living here, I would tell you to do your homework first. Our current governor Pence has cost this state hundreds of millions of dollars with some of his ultra conservative/I'll-advised/prejudicial and just plain backward policies. That will all come home to roost in other ways as well.

Actually, rent can be anywhere between $450-$2,000 a month for a one bedroom. It depends on the location and amenities. All apartments have central air/heating, garbage disposals, parking, and dishwashers. Most apartments have a clubhouse, pool, covered parking or garages, laundry facility on site, washer dryer hookups or in unit, fitness center, playground, private storage, etc. I have to say that most apartments here are nice. Fishers, Carmel, Geist are more expensive. So Indianapolis is usually less expensive unless you are downtown or at luxury apartments.
