Des Moines Iowa Capitol at night 





Des Moines Iowa made the List when Realtor.com® Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke offered up his top 10 picks for 2015—the places where we can expect to see strong housing growth, affordable prices and fast-paced sales. http://www.realtor.com/news/top-10-hot-housing-markets-watch-2015/ Des Moines Iowa - Favorite for Millennial Share of Households and Millennial Household Growth


While Des Moines might seem like an odd fit for a list of the hottest metros in America, Smoke sees encouraging signs.


Its high affordability and high levels of home ownership among millennials set the stage for strong housing performance next year, he says.


In fact, Iowa’s capital has been called everything from “The Best Place for Business” by Forbes to “The Wealthiest U.S. City” by the “Today Show.”


As further proof, the local economy continues to click along quite nicely. The city is seeing record levels of employment, Smoke added, and the unemployment rate is well below the national average.




Today’s Show say’s Des Moines is where regular folks can live the rich life and designates Des Moines “American’s wealthiest city.  Forbes magazine named Des Moines the best city for business and careers and Kiplinger called Des Moines best for families.  I love seeing the Des Moines metro area in the news but, this is something I have known all along.  So what are you waiting for?  Move on up and to my favorite City and suburbs – Des Moines Iowa.
