North Dakota real estate trends (May 2022)
From its sweeping grasslands to the shores of Lake Sakakawea, North Dakota is home to stunning natural beauty — including 63 wildlife refuges, the most of any state.
In fact, North Dakota is one of the least populated states in the nation, allowing plenty of wide open spaces. Though it's home to cities including Fargo, Bismarck, and Grand Forks, much of the state is considered rural.
But don't be fooled into thinking North Dakota lacks community spirit. It's officially nicknamed the Peace Garden State in recognition of the International Peace Garden, a botanical garden created in 1932 to promote friendship between the United States and Canada.
If you're thinking of buying or selling in North Dakota, these North Dakota housing predictions and stats can help you make an informed decision.
