Looking for homes in hipper, trendier neighborhoods closer to downtown, but don't know the city at all! Any suggestions?

Help the community by answering this question:


Greetings Angie,

I relocated to Albuquqerque from Chicago and have found it a great place to live. We have most of the attractions of a larger city but without all the hassle-and great weather and outdoor activities. My wife and I live in Nob Hill and really like it. We can walk to a variety of restaurants, cafes and shops and are also very close to the University of New Mexico (UNM) that has a varirty of activities available to the public. About 3-4 miles away is downtown and a couple of more miles away is Old Town. Addditionally we are near the I25 & I40 expressways and the airport. Prices for single family homes start at about $ 200,000 for 2 BR older (1950 or so) bunglalows and go up from there. My office, HydePark Realty is in Nob Hill and I am currently offering buyers a 1 1/2 % rebate at closing (may require lender approval). I would be interested in discussing the benefits of life in Nob Hill and other nearby areas at or 505-503-1000. Thank you

I agree with David Stafford on what would be the usual definition of "hipper, trendier" as far as neighborhoods but I would be curious to hear your definition. For instance, if by "hipper, trendier" you mean with all the newer bells and whistles in amenities, Nob Hill, being one our oldest neighborhoods, wouldn't be the place unless you purchase one of the remodels in that area at a very inflated price (i.e., $200+ per square foot). It all depends on what you consider "hip" and "trendy". If you are looking for the Urban Village concept, we are just now breaking into that arena and THAT is what most people these days consider "hip" and "trendy" and that is just now on the drawing board with occupancy starting next summer. Send me some details and I'll return with additional comments. BARB

Yes, Nob Hill, in southeast Albuquerque, or anywhere between Nob Hill and downtown along the Central. You could also go into and past downtown all the way to Old Town along Lomas and/or Central. The Albuquerque Country Club is down that way. I am happy to send more info any time or answer questions any time no obligation, just drop me an email. I grew up here and I actively buy and sell here - it is a wonderful place to live! Best of luck in your search!
