Moving to Sioux Falls is a decision you won't regret! Learn all the reasons why.

Sioux Falls, SD, is a growing area that has attracted around 20,000 new residents in the past several years. The city and its surrounding area have many positives that are attracting newcomers and making current residents happy that they call the area home.

Our real estate agents share some of the best reasons to move to Sioux Falls:

  • It's a very affordable place to call home.
    You won't need a fortune to live comfortably in Sioux Falls due to the area's relatively low cost of living. The tax climate is friendly, with no personal income tax and no personal property tax, and housing is affordable, costing only 94% of the national average. Food costs are only 88% of the national average, and transportation expenses are 89% of the national average. These and other factors combine to make the town's cost of living 6% below the national average.

  • The economy is strong.
    Sioux Falls has many economic positives, including a low unemployment rate of 3.2%, which is considerably lower than the U.S. average of 6.0%. The job market in Sioux Falls increased by 1.7% last year and is expected to outpace the U.S. average over the next 10 years, with job growth of 36.6%.

  • Commute times are short.
    In many cities, you'll spend much more time in your car fighting traffic than you could've imagined. This wasted time and aggravation affects everything from how early you have to get up in the morning to get to work or school to how long your day is extended after these activities to how long it takes you to run errands. U.S. News has named South Dakota as the state with the lowest commute time, which averages just 19 minutes.

  • Education is top-tier.
    Even if you no longer have kids in school, a strong educational system elevates an entire community, drawing employers to the area and even making it easier when it comes time to resell your home. Sioux Falls has a mix of private and public schools and has one of the highest concentrations of top-ranked public schools in South Dakota. In addition, the University of Sioux Falls and Kilian Community College both offer secondary education in the area.

  • The community is friendly.
    Sioux Falls attracts many newcomers who find that although it has many benefits typically associated with a larger community, it maintains a small-town friendliness. And if you move to the area, you'll already have a group of ready-made friends through the Sioux Falls Newcomers Club. Formed in 2019 to help welcome newcomers to the area and make it easier for them to form friendships, the club hosts events such as cookouts, game nights, play dates, happy hours, and much more.

  • There's plenty to see and do. 
    Sioux Falls has a lot to see and do, including dining at a popular fine dining restaurant like Morrie's Steakhouse or Spezia's, which serves traditional Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Or, if you're a sports fan, catch a Sioux Falls Skyforce game to see future NBA players or a Sioux Falls Canaries game to see future MLB stars. If you'd like to enjoy nature, Falls Park has a gorgeous water feature, and there are several hiking trails with amazing views just outside of Sioux Falls.
