Question by Bostonian: Need help from people around Indianapolis?
My son is going to be born in March and sometime in the spring or early summer, me and my girlfriend want to move to the Indianapolis area. We currently live in New England and its becoming way too expensive to live here. We want to move somewhere close to the city… maybe Carmel? Any other nice towns that are close to the city that you can suggest would be very helpful. Also, how is the job market? What is the average hourly rate for… a full time retail clerk just for an example.

Well, I can’t answer all the points of your question, but I’ll try to hit a few. Carmel is nice, but the houses are a bit pricey, it’s gained the reputation for the city where all of the Californians live, because they are some of the few that can afford it. Another few suggestions would be Noblesville or Fishers. Fishers is right on the edge, and Noblesville is about 10-15 minutes away. They’re both right on I-69 so getting to Indy is very easy (traffic forgiving of course). The Job Market? Well, I’ve heard mixed stories. If I were to take a guess (don’t rely too heavily on this) I would say sciences such as chemical engineering and the medical field are doing well. I bet you could find a more dependable answer as far as the job market goes at forbes.com. Hope this helps!!! Great choice though, Indianapolis really is a beautiful city, and according to forbes, the second cheapest place to live while still living nicely…Minneapolis was first.
