Demand is high, but properties do turn over. Bloomington’s newest and largest Historic District, first laid out in the pre-automobile days of the period from 1890 to 1920, is zoned for small-lot, single-family homes, but includes a number of multifamily dwellings. The neighborhood is roughly 55% rental.
