About Des Moines, Iowa

Des Moines and its metro area has seen a boom in real estate in the recent years. The area is highly sought after by people who want to enjoy the beautiful views and all that the area provides in terms of economic opportunity, big-city commerce, cultural events, and even the political scene. Those looking to sell a house should consider adding a fence to enhance the home's appearance and make it competitive on the real estate market.

Fences beautify a property, create a clear boundary on the property line, and add safety and security to a yard. Several types of fences are available for homeowners to choose from, ranging from chain link on the economical side and vinyl or wrought iron on the higher end. Wood remains the most popular because of its cost and appearance. The job is labor intensive, and there are some risks involved, which is why many people opt to hire a contractor to take on the project.

Des Moines Suburbs and Area Information

Des Moines is the most populated city in Iowa, and it is also the state's capital. It is one of the wealthiest cities in the country and has been named one of the best cities for business. Several insurance and finance companies have set up their headquarters in the area, which means that there are a lot of jobs available for residents. Those looking to escape the congestion that a big city has to offer can retreat to one of the many beautiful suburbs, which have high income levels and low housing costs:

  • Waukee
  • Johnston
  • Ankeny
  • Urbandale
  • Clive
  • Grimes

 

For the most part, Des Moines’s neighborhoods are primarily residential and run together, punctuated by the occasional area of restaurants and shops. Most of the city’s expansion is happening on the west side, and West Des Moines is where you’ll find homes built within the last several years along with interesting restaurants. Most of the houses in the north end of the city are much older and on smaller lots, so projects favor the installation of privacy fencing. Des Moines’s East Village is an up-and-coming spot with urban shopping, dining, and plenty of newer homes popping up in developments. Lots are large here, and fencing makes a perfect addition to keep kids and pets from wandering into neighbors’ yards.
