Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you take a look at the construction in our area, you might not be surprised to hear the real estate market is growing in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

That's what a group of regional real estate leaders from a five state area are talking about. What are the real issues that could affect market trends from the Dakotas to Nebraska? Some issues include housing options, unemployment rates, and legislative decisions. Many of the issues are moot for the Fargo area.

Dale Ross, CEO, Realtors Property Resource: “The Fargo market is actually excellent. The unemployment rate is 3.2%. There is tremendous building of housing for single family homes. A lot of growth rate in this market with big companies like Microsoft and other technologies companies.”

Ross says he travels across the nation and it's not very often he sees communities that have such an optimistic trend, like the Fargo area.
