Often referred to as “the Mount Rushmore State,” South Dakota has outstanding properties for sale, from farm and ranch lands, to hunting, fishing, and other recreational properties. South Dakota’s highly productive agricultural industry, combined with tourism, and abundant hunting acreages for upland birds, waterfowl and big game, provides landowners ample investment opportunities.
South Dakota is comprised of three primary regions: Western, Central, and Eastern, each with its own unique economic, social, and cultural characteristics.
Western South Dakota’s breathtaking Black Hills, Badlands, State Parks, and sprawling prairies, delight tourists from across the globe. Vast ranch lands are some of the most highly sought-after South Dakota land parcels for sale.
Central South Dakota land offers excellent farming and ranching opportunities, in addition to premier fishing and hunting, abundant wildlife, and boundless recreational activities. The Missouri River (“The Big Mo”) meanders through Central and Southeastern South Dakota.
Eastern South Dakota’s glacial formations are revered for their recreational, historical, and cultural value. Their rich, fertile soil contributes to high-yielding crops that not only feed the world, but positively impact the state’s high-ranking ethanol production. Regionally, South Dakota’s land values are determined by productivity, per-acre values, and agriculture industry preference (cropland versus grazing land).
Historically, agriculture has been the lifeblood of South Dakota, generating billions of dollars for the state’s economy. Agriculture is the state’s leading industry, and includes livestock (cattle and pork), and crops (wheat, corn, soybeans, sunflowers, and other small grains). Additionally, South Dakota is a tax-friendly state in which to do business.
