Explore Volga, SD Homes For Sale
Like many of the communities surrounding Brookings, Volga has become increasingly popular with families and individuals looking to find affordable housing or a slightly more laid-back setting. Many of the homes you'll find on the Volga real estate market are relatively new, built since the 1990s, and offer a range of layouts, styles, and sizes depending on your needs. Single story or split-level Ranch homes, often with prairie-style design touches, are particularly popular thanks to an abundance of large lots. Not only do their rambling floor plans accommodate all kinds of lifestyles, this style is great for children or older people with mobility issues because there are few stairs to climb.
Because residents have so much pride in their community, they frequently compete to have the nicest yards, and you'll frequently find exterior additions like decks, porches, and patios. It's all about curb appeal in Volga. Though the average home size here is around 1,500 square feet, it's easy to find properties that are larger or smaller depending on your needs. Regardless of their size, though, Volga homes for sale typically come with great features and upgrades that make them competitive with anything that you'll find in Brookings. These commonly include:
- Stainless steel appliances
- Multi-car garages
- Automated sprinkler systems
- Finished Basements
- Newer furnaces and windows
