There’s a lot to love about the city of Des Moines (Fong’s, anyone?), but being a home remodeler, the neighborhoods in town are my favorite thing by far. The Beaverdale bricks, the stately homes of South of Grand, the bungalows in the Waveland neighborhood, and the tree-lined streets all over the city give it the charm I love. But like even the best of us, these neighborhoods could always use a little TLC.
The City of Des Moines and Polk County have joined forces to form a unique nonprofit, Invest DSM. Together, they are working to revitalize neighborhoods around the county to bring them back to their glory days. They’ve started out with four Special Investment Districts (SIDs) and have a vision to establish healthier, vibrant, and thriving areas filled with residential properties and local businesses.
Invest DSM is providing financial incentives to residents for home improvement projects throughout all four SIDs. These are established neighborhoods in Des Moines — and they’re popular ones you have probably heard of:
If you have a home remodel in mind but your budget can’t quite match it, there’s some simple steps you can take to increase it:
We have two customers in the Franklin neighborhood that have partnered with Invest DSM in order to increase their budget. This is allowing them to make their homes more functional and add curb appeal.
One customer was able to add over $27,000 to their project from Invest DSM funds! She said she’s been dreaming of adding an addition on the top floor of their home for years. With low interest rates and the opportunity Invest DSM provided, she decided it was time to act on her home improvement dream.
Another client’s home suffered tree damage from the August 2020 derecho. Instead of simply fixing the damage, they dreamed big! They thought through what would make their home more functional, and decided to add a two story addition to the damaged side of their home. Through Invest DSM, they received a bump to their budget. A win for them and their neighborhood!
If you need a home remodeler to help you increase the function of your home , Zenith is here for you. Our staff of designers, carpenters, and project managers can make your home remodeling project a stress-free and seamless process.
