    Neighborhood: Watrous South

    Zillow predicts Watrous South home values will increase 3.9% next year, compared to a 3.9% rise for Des Moines as a whole. Among Watrous South homes, this home is valued 25.9% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 14.6% more per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In the Watrous South market, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold decreased 7.4% in the last year. The number of unsold foreclosures is 1.8% lower than in Des Moines, and 64.1% higher than the national average. This lower local number could help Watrous South home values rise more quickly than other regions in Des Moines.
