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.
