My Notes

Wow, over 1800 sq ft in this brick story and a half. Lots of updating done in this 5 bedroom home, including refinishing hardwood floors on both 1st and 2nd floors, mechanical, bath rooms and more. One bedroom could easily be switched into an office. This home has both a formal living room and a formal dining room, plus all the appliances stay. The lower level floor plan gives a new owner lots of potential for finishing. Nicely landscaped with flowers, bushes and trees. All this on a large quarter corner lot. Low West Des Moines Property Taxes and Great West Des Moines Schools.

What I love about the home

Cape Cod all Brick home with beautiful hardwood floors throughout in nice neighborhood. Very spacious with over 2800 Sq Ft. Nice corner lot and nicely landscaped. Nice private patio with Privacy Fence and Garage access. This is a dream home.

Market guide

Zillow predicts 50265 home values will rise 2.4% next year, compared to a 2.3% increase for West Des Moines as a whole. Among 50265 homes, this home is 46.8% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 17.6% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 50265, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 48.3% higher than in West Des Moines, and 47.9% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 50265 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in West Des Moines.
