Are Rents Going Up in Des Moines?

Here’s what you need to know about rent prices in Des Moines.

If you’re a homeowner, the last two years have been fantastic. Homes have appreciated like crazy all across the country, so you probably have plenty of equity. However, the situation isn’t so rosy for tenants.
