The median home value in Des Moines is $273,400. Des Moines home values have gone up 10.2% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 5.9% within the next year.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Des Moines 11.2 homes are foreclosed (per 10,000). This is greater than the Seattle Metro value of 4.1 and also greater than the national value of 3.6

Mortgage delinquency is the first step in the foreclosure process. This is when a homeowner fails to make a mortgage payment. The percent of delinquent mortgages in Des Moines is 5.9%, which is lower than the national value of 6.0%. With U.S. home values having fallen by more than 20% nationally from their peak in 2007 until their trough in late 2011, many homeowners are now underwater on their mortgages, meaning they owe more than their home is worth. The percent of Des Moines homeowners underwater on their mortgage is 21.5%, which is higher than Seattle Metro at 14.6%.
