The Lot Book




I love summer! Lots closing, foundations going in, homes being built… as a lotman, it doesn't get any better. Summer is also a time that new development opportunities become available. Over the past few weeks, I have listed some really cool new projects!

Market Update: New construction and land development are strongly moving along in the second quarter of 2015. In the Des Moines metro, new construction sales were up nearly 17% from a year ago. The average sale price of a new home is $296,000, which is up about 7.5% from last year. This is more than likely due to increased lot costs, increased labor costs, and increased materials costs. Land developers and builders are still anxiously trying to find the answer to affordable, new construction housing (under $250,000) in the highly-coveted western suburbs.
