south dakota: To Acreage Or Not To Acreage! That Is The Question! - 10/09/11 01:48 PM

I often hear from people about their dreams of living in the country on an acreage. I used to share this dream too until it happened. I found that it wasn’t the dream come true that I had envisioned.  While I did like that you have a little more freedom with your property there was also some negatives!
1.    Do you like to be close to town to grab a loaf of bread or to go to the kids sporting events? You might not be!
2.   Do you need to be off to work early in the morning in … (12 comments)

south dakota: RASE August 2011 Housing Market Statistical Reporting For Sioux Falls, SD - 09/13/11 07:51 PM

Sioux Falls, SD – September 12, 2011:Despite some choppy waters in August, there have been noteworthy shifts on both sides of the closing table. Buyer activity is moving back in line with historical trends while sellers are making fewer concessions in order to sell their homes. Falling supply and improving absorption rates in many regions also suggest that market balance is realigning towards neutral. Locally, a few indicators posted positive movement over August 2011, but do the rest of the numbers provide reason for optimism?
New Listings in the Sioux Falls region decreased 5.1 percent to 498. Pending Sales … (2 comments)
