    Crazy $$$ house in West Des Moines

    I have to think that there are a very limited number of people that can afford this one in central Iowa.


    3800 Fuller Rd, West Des Moines, IA, 50265 - MLS ID#340608 - Single Family Home Real Estate - REALTOR.com®

    At the bottom it says.

    "This is the most expensive home ever listed in the DM area"

    What a dump. The garage is nicer than my livingroom.

    If you noticed the kitchen... no appliances. I think for $3.9, I'd like the refrigerator to stay.

    Re: Crazy $$$ house in West Des Moines

    This story is the economy in a nutshell. A large developer/home builder who made his money by selling properties to people who really couldn't afford them builds a house that is an obvious temple to greed. He can't afford it so he moves back into another house he owns that is probably really nice and sticks the banks(two of them) with the bill. The banks cry that they are broke and the taxpayers get to eat the balance of the loan so the next guy can "steal" the house from the bank.

    I could do without the checkerboard floor in that garage.

    Did the realtor really think it was necessary to add that little line about the most expensive house ever listed in Des Moines?

    Re: Crazy $$$ house in West Des Moines

    This house is on my way to work. Its not in a very good location either. Just west of Jordan Creek Elementary, and the junior high school. If you're going to build a house like that, you'd think he would have done it outside of city limits. All in all the whole lot is ridiculus. The place has its own football field.

    Re: Crazy $$$ house in West Des Moines

    IF I've got the story correct, the "owner" of this home is now living in Denver or Phoenix (bailed over a year ago), was a developer, and left a LOT of people high and dry - including two of my clients.

    A smaller version of Regency, except he got out of Dodge.

    For a $4 million house, I would expect a pool about 5 times the size of that one.

    Now this place has a nice pool:
