Des Moines metro home pricing finally hit its ceiling in 2022 after several years of spikes.

  • That's according to a new year-end report published by Les Sulgrove, a local realtor and former president of the Des Moines Area Association of Realtors.

Zoom in: Sulgrove uses a valuation model of an existing DSM residence's to estimate what an average home is currently worth.

  • That peaked at around $325K during the last quarter of 2022 and is now around $310K, his data shows.

👀 Here's a look at the six most expensive metro homes of 2022 that all sold for at least $1.9 million, according to DSM Area Association of Realtors data:
