City of Des Moines land: Here is an awesome opportunity for three, city-owned, development parcels that are now being offered to single family residential land developers. Utilities are available at each parcel. These are infill parcels located off of McKinley Avenue, close to Des Moines International Airport. Nice houses surround the parcels.

I love Des Moines. It's my home and I couldn't be more proud of that. Outside of my college years, I have been here my entire life and have had the opportunity to meet and befriend some of the finest people that the world has to offer. I also love real estate. Since I was a little kid playing Monopoly with my family, it is something that I have always been in awe of. Through lot and development ground sales, the idea that I have the potential to play a small role in the development and growth of the city that I love is everything I could possibly want in a "job"... If you want to call it that.

I have spent close to a year now trying to put everything together for this website. Initially my intention was to have a website where I could direct builders and developers for the lot and ground listings that I have. Seeing that I have listings all across Central Iowa, I thought that it would be easiest to have a page for each of the 19 communities that make up the Des Moines Metro and on each community page, have links to the projects that I have listed in that community.

Over the past few years, having worked with builders, developers, and individuals wanting to buy lots, I have seen a lot of people pass on some great lot and ground opportunities, specifically because they don't know much about the community that the ground is part of. Therefore I took the time to coordinate with representatives of each of the 19 communities that make up the Metro to put together a "Community Profile" for each community. The Community Profiles cover a wide range of things from demographics to schools to building permits, etc. I wanted to make sure to include things that I knew builders, developers, and individuals wanting to buy a lot would be interested in.

Highland Meadows has been a phenomenal community to be a part of. We started out with 19 home sites in Plat 1 less than a year ago and are now down to only six. Frontages on the remaining home sites are 90 feet and we have flat and daylight opportunities. This is the perfect subdivision for a $400,000+ custom.

Hilltop is the newest subdivision in Van Meter! Acre-plus, wooded, walk-out home sites available with city water and city sewer. Also, they are located close to the baseball diamonds and school! The catch? We only have 4 available, so act quick. $85,000 per lot.
