Happy Holidays and happy New Year! The real estate market saw a rebound in 2013, however it was affected by the government shutdown in the Fall. Still signs point to another strong year for the real estate industry. In Des Moines home sales have seen steady growth over the past several years, and prices are starting to show signs of recovery after steady declines.
Across the nation real estate experts predict that home sales will rise from coast to coast by as much as 14-percent. According to Little Big Homes, the real estate market is expected to be on the rise for the Des Moines metro area until at least 2016. Little Big Homes expects home sales to increase by as much as 4.5-percent this year and they report an 80-to-85-percent accuracy rate.
This year the average home price in Des Moines was $186,500 which is up slightly from last year (0.5-percent) but most experts expect to see continued rising home prices over at least the next three years. The good news for home-sellers is prices are up, not just here but in 225 of the 276 cities tracked by Clear Capital. The bad news is overall numbers since the recession are still way down. Since the 2nd quarter of 2006 Des Moines home prices have fallen over 15-percent.
