The number of homes on the market in the Des Moines metro area rose 22.8% over this time last year


“A bit of a slow down in August is normal with families finishing up vacations, so many Iowans attending the state fair and school starting up. We are pleased to see the number of homes on the market rising again, giving our buyers more potential options. Prices are up only 5% and starting to level off. Despite the normal seasonal slowdown, homes are selling quickly with an average of 24 days on market,” stated President Jen Stanbrough.
