Hi Jusint....Great question. I have been overwhelmed with the number of buyers looking to BUY townhomes this year. I personally listed a townhome in late January, and it sold within 3 days of listing it...to the first buyer who saw it. Another townhome which I listed this year sold in about 3 weeks. I have two townhomes pending a sale currently...and lots of buyer's wanting to buy townhomes. Interest rates are low...there are serious buyers out there looking to buy. Of course, in a rental situation, you assume some risks -- which is something to consider. In todays market - in West Des Moines, you may want to consider selling your townhome, as opposed to renting it. Let me know if I can be of further help. You can contact me at 515-528-3359.
