In addition to Hannah's spot-on advice that your best bet is a Realtor, it is also true that the majority of folks starting to look for properties these days prefer to do their preliminary searches on line before deciding which Realtor to establish a relationship with.
While most realty companies (as well as Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, etc.) have property search engines, I would like you to go to SantaFeRealEstate.com and see if that does the trick for you. From the home page put your cursor over the Property Search tab and select Map Search from the drop down menu.
Once the map pops up you can zoom in, select the area you want and view all listings for sale - but better yet, use the filters on the left-hand side and narrow your choices by price range, property type, size, etc. You can just surf the site without having to register - but if you do, and enter my name as your agent (don't worry, there's no obligation to use me) you can save properties, ask me specific questions about any that you're curious about, etc.
I really think this is the most robust real estate search engine in our market - and I'm not just saying that because it was developed by my company. Try it and see whether or not it delivers. I'd love to get your feedback; my email address is below.
Hi. Go to Lizsheffield.com.....there is a Santa Fe map that shows you the MLS area breakdown so you can search by specific area. If you want just a "neighborhood" I can draw an area around that specific area and email you all properties in that area. After that I can have the system automatically email you newly listed properties as well as any price changes in that specific area. All this an no strings attached!
What area are you most interested in investigating?

So far you have received great options in answers. I have three other options for you to consider which are focused on saving you both time and money by providing you the information you need to make decisions and inquiries. First, you can search on either of my two website links below. One provides you with both map and list search results. The other provides search results for a range of details including a mobile app to download for use on your tablet or smart phone at no cost to you. Last, if send me an email request, I can send you a map version of our MLS areas in pdf form with no obligation. I understand many buyers prefer to use Trulia to search online for general information on homes.
If I can be of further assistance, let me know.
