There was one thing that you really needed to be aware of though within the black Hills area, there are two realtor associations.

One is called the black Hills association of realtors. The other is called Mount Rushmore association of realtors. The areas listed in our association are different than the areas literally than the Mount Rushmore association. The easiest way to tell which association this property is listed in, whether it be the black Hills association realtors or the Mount Rushmore association realtors is to look at the MLS number.

If the MLS number is above 150,000, that will be part of the black Hills association of realtors. If it's below a hundred thousand, that'll be part of the Mount Rushmore association realtors, at least as of March, 2020. Yes. I know it's ridiculous, but that's the way it is.
