North Dakota Real Estate ? Wide Open Spaces And Wildlife
North Dakota is truly the state of wide open spaces and wildlife. With a small population base, North Dakota real estate is extremely affordable.
Made famous, or perhaps infamous, by the Fargo movie, North Dakota is the state for you if you?re looking to get away from everything. The state seems to have far more animals than humans, which has also lead to the lowest crime rate of any state in the country. While the state is irrefutably cold during the winter, it can be very nice during the rest of the year. During said period, outdoor activities are plentiful, particularly considering large sections of the state have been designate refuges for such animals as the bison and the big horn sheep. Admittedly, North Dakota is not for everyone, but it is hardly the end of the world as some portray it.
What? You were expecting me to start with another town? Made famous in the movie carrying its name, Fargo is a sleepy, little town. A comfortable downtown area is surrounded by neighborhoods populated with friendly people. The pace of life is definitely of the laid back variety. You will not find the rat race or rush hour traffic here. On the other hand, you can raise your family without the risks of bigger cities.
Home to the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks is a quaint little town with a definite new feel. The town was devastated during a freak flood in 1997, but has seen significant redevelopment efforts reinvigorate it. The town has tree-lined streets and neighborhoods of white picket fenced homes. Unfortunately, the economy is rumored to be less than stellar, so make sure you investigate before relocating.
