North Dakota Eases Restrictions on Marketing Out-of-State Homes
With a little help from the state’s home builders, North Dakota is catching up with modern times in the area of residential sales and marketing.
On April 12, North Dakota Governor John Hoeven (R) signed into law Senate Bill 2343, which amended the North Dakota Subdivided Lands Disposition Act to remove registration requirements for marketing and sale of out-of-state housing subdivisions to North Dakota residents.
The North Dakota Association of Builders and its executive director, Doreen Riedman, were instrumental in the passage of the new law, which simply allows home builders to market their products to residents of neighboring states.
In the past, home builders in neighboring states could not actively market their homes to citizens of North Dakota without first registering that particular home or development with the state. S 2343 amended this antiquated law to conform with current marketing technologies such as those used on the Internet.
