A look at the Days on the Market for January to June, 2008
by: Brian Wentz, REALTOR

2008 has thrown every obstacle at the Des Moines Iowa Real Estate market one can think of. From a ridiculously hard and cold winter, to summer floods and tornado's, not to mention the national media beating the "The Market is Bad" drum, we have seen out share of headwinds in the market in 2008!

But the numbers show the resiliency of the Des Moines market! After a pretty substantial jump in the number of days it has taken to receive an offer in February, March and April (when the weather ruled the headlines), the Des Moines Area Association of Realtors stats show the market is gaining steam! 

In fact the average number of days it took to receive an offer was down by almost 20 days in June! That is great news for home owners wanting to sell their home in the current market! Those are much more typical numbers for the Des Moines market, and a positive sign of things to come!
