State of the Des Moines Housing Market: 2014 vs. 2015

It’s about that time of year when we look at the past year and assess how we did. How did the Des Moines area housing market do?

Compared to 2014 (in itself a stellar year), the housing market did quite well! Check out the statistics below (from the Multiple Listing Service; may not include For Sale By Owner).

What does this mean to you?

  1. If you want to sell your home, we are in a seller’s market right now. Due to the low inventory, we have more buyers than homes available.
  2. If you’re looking to buy a home, you should insure you’re an attractive buyer to any seller (pre-approved, minimal contingencies, flexible closing dates, etc.).
  3. How do you determine if you are in a position to take advantage of this market? Contact me today; we can schedule a quick 15-30 minute consultation.
