Des Moines Home Sales Surpass The 9,000 Mark YTD

For the first time since 2007, Des Moines Home Sales exceed 8,000 closed transactions.  In 2007 at the height of the market bubble, Des Moines real estate sales were just over 10,000.  In light of the fact that there are no tax credits artificially stimulating the market, this is a very good sign that our local housing economy has turned the corner.
