North Dakota Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

The North Dakota real estate market looks perfectly capable of maintaining the momentum it has generated over the course of the latest recovery.  Thanks to one of the country’s most stable economies, real estate in North Dakota has a strong foundation to build off of.  Thanks, in large part, to both taxes and jobs created by the energy industry, the North Dakota housing industry is alive and well. 

While the majority of the country has seen severe inventory shortages create markets that lean heavily in favor of sellers, North Dakota presents residents with a more balanced market.  As a result, median home values haven’t priced a great deal of buyers out of the market and more people are afforded the opportunity to take action, whether it’s buying or selling.
