    Another reason I am glad I live in ND. Mine have increased about 4% in the last 5 years and they were pretty low to start with.

    I’ve always wondered why someone living in the Red River Valley would choose to live on the Minnesota side of the border (Moorhead, EGF, etc…). Taxes are considerably more friendly in ND, are they not?

    Income tax is a lot less in ND vs MN, but there are other factors like housing/health care costs that offset it.

    They are also just fairly different places to live. Fargo is like Minneapolis (it has the big college, a downtown with all the arts/entertainment options, nice restaurants, attracts younger people, etc.), and Moorhead is like St Paul (predominantly quiet neighborhoods for families looking to settle down).
