Iowa State Capitol

Iowa is a small state near the Great Lakes. This largely agricultural state is a major producer of corn and is often referred to as the “Food Capital of the World.” The state is also a leader in sustainable energy production. Iowa is bordered by several rivers and contains many rolling hills.

Des Moines is the capital and the largest city in Iowa. The city sits at the confluence of the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers. Historic buildings, such as the Barney Sakulin Log House and several museums display exhibits on Des Moines history. The Des Moines Botanical Center, Living History Farms, and Adventureland Park are some of the many attractions in the area.

Iowa real estate includes urban townhouses, suburban single-family homes, farmland and farmhouses, lake houses, and hunting property. Properties in Iowa provide easy access to big-city amenities as well as rural retreats.
