Since April 2021, Tzadik Properties, LLC, an industry-leading, multifamily property management company, has acquired almost $20 million in South Dakota properties, continuing to build its portfolio in the state.

One of the homes, Vista Lodge near Lead, was purchased for $1,305,000, has hiking trails, ski runs, a sauna, hot tub, and bar. According to the Airbnb website, this will rent for close to $700 per night.
