Moving to Grand Forks ND

Finding a home these days can be difficult, but if you’re in the market for new homes in Grand Forks ND, South Belmont’s beautiful Prairiewood neighborhood is currently offering a number of large lots and spacious home designs that could be just what you want, with the benefit of having everything done to your personal tastes. If you’re looking for other good reasons to move to Grand Forks, you’ll find even more than the number of lots we have available!

Grand Forks is the kind of place where you can enjoy the perks of big city life with great restaurants, shopping, entertainment and more, but still enjoy the feeling of living in a smaller, welcoming community. This is where craft breweries, big businesses, and family friendly parks ensure there’s something for everyone, without the hassle of long commutes if you do work in the commercial or business center.

With a population of just over 55,000, Grand Forks is a comfortable size for getting around and enjoying what’s on offer and also means fewer traffic jams and shorter commute times. Of course, that’s helped by having major roads like I-29, US-2, ND-297, not to mention the GFK Grand Forks International Airport if you need to travel further afield.

Downtown is a truly charming area with a range of restaurants, shops, and breweries, combining national chains and local specialties. It’s a nice place to pass the day, wandering among stores and stopping at various cafes and breweries. You can also take in some culture at local art galleries and find some great artwork for your new home or enjoy a show at the Chester Fritz Auditorium.

Of course, if you prefer something with a little more intensity and adrenaline, Grand Forks has some great outdoor activities and plenty of sports. Cheer on the Fighting Hawks, the hockey team for the University of North Dakota, or hit the trails for some hiking and biking. Grand Forks has plenty of parks for family fun and picnics, along with ball fields, courts, gardens, and more.  There are even  two public golf courses: Kings Walk Golf Course and Lincoln Golf Course. The Red River also offers great trails, greenways, and plenty of water activities including fishing, swimming, boating, and paddling.

Whether you have children or not, you know that the quality of the schools is important, which is why people like Grand Forks. Ranked the #2 Best School District in North Dakota, the district serves over 7,000 students and offers a low student-teacher ratio of just 12:1. It’s home to 12 elementary schools, four middle schools, and two top-performing high schools, Central High (ranked the #1 High School in ND) and Red River High (#3). The Prairiewood community is served by the Red River High School.

With all of these perks to living in Grand Forks, not to mention the annual events that include a great Independence Day fireworks display, the Downtown Farmers Markets, Greenway Takeover Festival, Blue Moose Oktoberfest and HollyDazzle Festival of Lights, there are a lot of reasons to choose one of the newly available lots to build one of the new home in Grand Forks ND at Prairiewood Community. Contact us today to learn about the variety of large lots and spacious, beautiful homes we have available so you can start enjoying all that Grand Forks has to offer.
