Often referred to as the “Mount Rushmore State”, explore the best South Dakota properties for sale, from farm and ranch lands to hunting and other recreational properties. South Dakota’s highly productive agriculture industry blended in with tourism and abundant hunting acreages for upland birds, waterfowl and big game, provides landowners ample investment opportunities.

South Dakota is primarily comprised of three different regions, each with their own unique economic, social and cultural characteristics: Western, Central and Eastern.

Western South Dakota’s breathtaking Black Hills, Badlands, State Parks and sprawling prairies delight tourists from across the globe. Vast ranchlands are some of the most highly sought-after South Dakota land parcels for sale.

Central South Dakota land embodies farming and ranching in addition to premier fishing, hunting, wildlife observation, and boundless other recreational activities. The Missouri River, “the Big Mo”, meanders through Central and South-Eastern South Dakota.

Eastern South Dakota’s glacial formations are preserved for their recreational, historical and cultural value.  Its rich fertile soil contributes to Eastern South Dakota’s high yielding crops that not only feed the world but impact the state’s high-ranking ethanol production. Regionally, South Dakota’s land for sale values are determined by its productivity, per-acre values and/or agriculture industry preference (cropland versus grazing land).

Historically, agriculture has been the lifeblood of South Dakota generating billions of dollars towards the state’s economy.  Agriculture is the state’s leading industry, including livestock (cattle and pork) and crops (wheat, corn, soybeans, sunflowers and other small grains). Additionally, South Dakota is a business tax-friendly state.
