Even though Des Moines' housing market is settling a tiny bit — sales are still happening faster than ever.

State of play: More homes are becoming available, so you don't have to search as frantically to get the perfect spot.

By the numbers: In June, there were 1,838 homes up for sale — a 6% improvement over 1,734 in May, according to the Des Moines Area Association of Realtors.

  • That same month, the metro's median sale price was $254K.
  • Median time on market: 3 days
1326 Cummins Parkway, Des Moines — $295,000

Why we love it: The split midcentury exterior is drool-worthy. Built in 1955, the interior of the home is updated for a modern feel, and has plenty of windows for natural light.

Neighborhood: Waveland

Realtor: Matt Mauro of RE/MAX Concepts

Specs: 3 bed/4 bath, 1,725 square feet

Notable features: The full stone wall in the living room, a giant kitchen island and a mudroom off the garage.
