Zillow predicts Gray's Lake home values will increase 2.7% next year, compared to a 2.2% rise for Des Moines as a whole. Among Gray's Lake homes, this home is 67.7% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 23.7% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Gray's Lake, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 62.2% higher than in Des Moines, and 167.5% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Gray's Lake home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Des Moines.
