This brand-new ranch walkout twin home in east Sioux Falls delivers tons of value and is ready for its first homeowners.

Built and owned by Empire Homes, this four-bedroom, three-bath home offers many of the extras today’s buyers are seeking.

“We’re very proud of this and other twin homes we’ve brought to this neighborhood and are excited to make them available to new residents,” said Blake Hyde, Empire Homes’ chief operating officer.

“When you look at the cost per square foot in a home like this, it becomes extremely cost effective, especially for those looking for housing as they experience rent increases. We’ve also built these paired homes with growing, busy families in mind.”

The location

This home is at 7301 E. 45th St., placing your household in the Brandon Valley School District and close to all the shopping, dining and employment centers in growing east Sioux Falls.

“Brandon is an incredibly sought-after school district, and you’ll find living near Veterans Parkway will give you easy access to anywhere in town, including Interstate 90,” Hyde said.

The main level

The open floor plan of this home’s main level encompasses 1,236 square feet, including a flowing kitchen, dining and living area leading to a covered deck.

The kitchen features a center island, birch cabinets, tile backsplash and a stainless steel appliance package.

“The master suite also has some nice design touches, including a tray ceiling,” Hyde said.

The lower level

This home’s lower level features nine-foot ceilings with another large living room, full bath and two more bedrooms making this property perfect for families who are looking for more space. The walk-out basement with a large sliding glass door also provides easy access to the backyard.

“There’s a perception that twin homes are only for older residents or those who are downsizing,” Hyde said. “While they can be a great fit for those lifestyles, they’re also increasingly a strong option for home owners of all ages looking to maximize their investment in what can be a challenging market.”

Additionally, Empire Homes twin homes offer other amenities that are included with every home:

  • Solid core interior doors
  • A sheet rocked garage
  • Insulated garage walls and doors
  • An elevated plumbing package

“There’s a lot of value included here for home owners,” Hyde said. “We’ve already experienced strong interest in these homes and anticipate that will continue.”

The price

This home is listed for $392,450, and there is no escalation clause, so the listing price is final.
