Carroll Iowa Real Estate Market - 2011 Market Study

by Mike Franey

The state of the Carroll Iowa real estate market remains steady avoiding all of the peaks and valleys that is seen in other parts of the country. The lack of distressed house sales was one of the the contributing factors to the 7.3% increase in average sale price from 2010 to 2011. The 2011 average sale price in Carroll was $120,203 with the State of Iowa average being $135,496. 

The activity levels in the Carroll Iowa real estate market remained steady from 2010 to 2011 showing only a 1.2% increase in sold listings. 

Average days on the market saw a slight increase from 92 to 93 days. 


Overall the Carroll Iowa real estate market is strong! The combination of the low unemployment, a robust farm economy and historic low interest rates makes real estate in Carroll County, Iowa a great investment.

Larry "Coach" Clark wins 2011 Public Service Award

by Mike Franey

He thought he was coming to support his daughter! But what he did not know was his grandson Kyler would take the podium and on behalf of the thousands of people whose lives he has impacted it was his time to be recognized. Larry “Coach” Clark has influenced us all around these parts. Colin Hackett nominated Coach for the award based on his dedication to the youth.  

In his heartfelt nomination Kyler looked out to the crowd of over 250 with a sense of pride as he told us why his Grandpa deserved the 2011 Carroll Chamber of Commerce Public Service Award. From his 31 years of service to the Social Security Administration, his volunteering efforts for the Carroll area Kiwanis, Meals on Wheels, his numerous golf clinics and his 22 years leading the Kuemper golf team it was clear that this award fit him well. 

In his nomination Hackett stated “Larry didn’t just make the teams successful he made the people successful as well!”

Kyler continued to tell the audience that Coach always preached about keeping a positive attitude and no matter what your successes are always remain humble.

What a great award given to a great recipient! Congratulations Coach!
