Here are three reasons why there’s never been a better time to plant roots in the state.

There's also the state’s open land for fishing, hiking, hunting and recreation for those who prefer to enjoy the outdoors in their free time. Plus, South Dakota is the most affordable state to build a new home right now.
2. The Economic Opportunities Are Real
The current unemployment rate in South Dakota clocks in at just 2.8 percent, according to the Department of Labor and Regulation. Skilled professionals can earn high wages and there are opportunities in a wide variety of trades, including nursing and mechanical repairs as well as accounting and finance are booming.
That’s likely partially due to the fact that the absence of corporate income tax or business inventory taxes makes it the second best state in the country to start a business, says a 2021 Blueprint report.
