“Unlike major ups and downs seen in other areas of the country, Iowa continues its steady growth. September numbers continued the trend of rising home sales and rising median prices. For specific market conditions, Contact your REALTOR®.” Stated IAR President Ken Clark.

    This is good news. Our real estate market was having a decline in the prices and this news is really good. Many people went out of business last year and at least we won’t be seeing that now. Thanks for sharing the news.

    I don’t know for what reason the price of home sales has been increased. The government is simply increasing the price due to which the sale rate has decreased. This information will be very helpful for those people who are planning to buy a house.original site

     Why is the price going up like that in September? This is not vacation time or something. I don’t understand how these prices are changing without any cause. Who is making all these changes? We should bring a common rule for price calculation.

    An increase in sales, shows successful marketing  strategies and client's satisfaction. Business promotion is usually higher at this stage, unlike the monthly home sale reports via College-paper review which lacks effective marketing strategies and low sales report.

    An increase in sales, only goes to show how successful your marketing strategies are and how satisfied your clients with your products and services.  Unlike the companies listed via reviews which lacks effective marketing strategies.
