Des Moines Real Estate Roundup

Week Ending August 15th, 2008
The Iowa State Fair is winding down and if predictions are correct, it will be a record attendance setting year!  Mild weather and families staying closer to home this summer are getting the credit for the predicted attendance of over 1 million visitors!  My wife, son and I attended today adding 3 to that count.  A highlight for my son was visiting the National Guard display just as they were rolling out one of Dale Earnhardt Jr’s NASCAR cars.  The sound of the engine almost knocked us over as they started it up to move it into place.
