Agriculture is an important part of life in South Dakota. Although large industrial farms are replacing small family-owned farms, many home buyers in the state prefer rural life. The South Dakota Association of REALTORS® is making efforts to help rural home buyers and homeowners.

The REALTORS® association has partnered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation District, the Cooperative Extension Service of South Dakota State University, and other conservation agencies in the state to develop an informative publication for rural home owners.

“Rural Living: A Guide for South Dakota Rural Homeowners,” seeks to “create an awareness of environmental concerns associated with living on a rural development or a small acreage.” It covers important topics that rural homebuyers need to know, such as how to deal with wetlands, erosion control and wildlife habitats. “Things you and your neighbors do can either improve or degrade the health of our natural resources,” the guide says.

In addition, the guide gives homebuyers important information about purchasing and managing a rural home site. It provides details of rural life that potential home buyers may overlook, such as how much acreage is needed if a buyer plans to raise livestock.

The South Dakota Association of REALTORS® is helping to provide information that enriches the lives and investments of rural home buyers and homeowners.
