The Des Moines Housing Market is Hot

Des Moines Housing Market

One of the best things about living in Des Moines is that there is a home for every type of person and family. We have condos. We have ranch homes. We have two-story homes. We have homes with pools. We have homes with large backyards. We have homes with small back-yards.

To top it off, we have some of the best schools, best trails, and best parks around.

A decade ago, no one thought Des Moines was going to become the bright spot it is today. In the last few years, we have hosted the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, major music acts, the rodeo, the Iowa Caucuses, and so much more! We’ve had great new companies coming into the market; Facebook, Google, Microsoft, new financial companies, and startups galore.

And through it all, Des Moines remains a great place to live.

With our great quality of life in Des Moines, the housing market remains robust and hot.
