The Voice for Real Estate in South Dakota
Housing Opportunities Video/Info

The mission of the Housing Opportunity Program is to position REALTORS® as leaders in identifying, developing, advocating and promoting business opportunities, programs, products and resources that expand housing availability and ensure an adequate supply of housing opportunities for all in both the rental and homeownership sectors of the market.

Lack of affordable housing also impacts all segments of the real estate market including first-time purchasers, low-income, minorities, seniors, disabled, renters and single-family buyers, as well as rental property owners and developers.The nation's housing opportunity crisis is one that is well established and fed by an area's economic, demographic and regulatory characteristics.

Most disheartening is the fact that this is an issue that will not go away on its own. Without reasonable housing opportunities families are stressed to the breaking point, neighborhoods decline, jobs go unfilled and the quality of life suffers for all of us.
