South Dakota Land for Sale

With an estimated population of 877,790 and a land mass of 77,176 miles, South Dakota has the fifth least dense population in the United States. The bulk of the state's population resides on the eastern side of the state where the soil is ideal for farming. The most densely populated cities in South Dakota are:

  • Sioux Falls
  • Rapid City
  • Aberdeen
  • Brookings
  • Watertown
  • Mitchell

South Dakota is the ideal place to live if you like being outdoors. There's ample opportunity for hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and more. During the warm months, large chunks of the state's residents as well as tourists, flock to Lake Sharpe, Lewis and Clarke Lake, Cheyenne River, Missouri River, Missouri National Recreational River, Big Sioux River, Lake Francis Case, White River, James River, and Lake Oahe to engage in a wide assortment of water activities that range from rafting to fishing to swimming.

The summer months are also a popular time to set aside time to explore Crazy Horse Memorial Park, Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Wind Cave National Park, the Mammoth Site and Hot Springs.

South Dakota's Economy

South Dakota's economy relies heavily on:

  • Agriculture
  • Manufacturing (food processing and electronics)
  • Mining (gold, construction sand, stone, gypsum, gravel, copper, and silver)
  • Tourism
  • Casinos

Anyone who is looking for a job would be well-advised to move to South Dakota. In October 2018, the state’s unemployment rate was 3.0% which is a full 7% below the national unemployment rate.

Buying land in South Dakota is a great choice for anyone with aspirations for becoming a business owner. The state is considered one of the most business-friendly environments in the United States. Experts feel that the reasons businesses thrive in South Dakota is because the state has a dedicated workforce who are both reliable and hardworking. The lack of taxes the state government charges also appeals to business owners, since they can take the money they would have paid in taxes and reinvest it in their business.

South Dakota Land for Sale

With the exception of the acres that have been set aside for National and State parks, the bulk of South Dakota's land is reserved for agriculture purposes. South Dakota is home to more than 31,000 farms or ranches with each operation averaging 1,397 acres in size. The most fertile farms are found on the east side of the state and are used to produce:

  • Soybeans
  • Sunflowers
  • Wheat
  • Flaxseed
  • Oats
  • Barley
  • Rye

While crops make up the biggest aspect of South Dakota's agriculture industry, farmers also raise cattle and hogs. Many of the livestock producers own enough land to also grow their own feed.
