The area least known but richest in quality living is the North Valley. Running north next to the Rio Grande from Old Town to the edge of town, the North Valley has it all in the most beautiful oasis setting.

Where you live depends on your criteria. What are some of your priorities for your next home?

The NE is a much better location. It provides recreation (trails), shopping, dining, and entertainment. You don't have to cross the river which a pain due to only three bridge crossings and traffic is only going to get worse (I know because I work on transportation projects). NE has higher home values and is considered more established.

Hi Jairo,

I believe you'll be the one who can answer it the best because, your reasons my determine which quadrant will end up being your new home. Since your initially renting, that is the best start, You'll have an opportunity to live in one area and see how it fits your lifestyle.

Once you get a feel for the city, you can begin to search for a home in the location that is most convenient for you.

For rentals, you can try websites such as:

Be careful when using websites such as craigslist. There can be scams on that website. Be sure to check out all potential owners/landlords.

Jairo, hello. Welcome to Albuquerque. I grew up and live on the west side of town; I have really seen the city grow--both areas. I am familiar with many of the areas and communities here on the west side and can help answer questions about schools and neighborhoods.

I would be glad to assist you in any way you need.

Hi Jairo,
That answer really depends on you. Making sure you feel comfortable in an area is more important that an answer that an agent may have.

I have as many clients that love the NE Heights of ABQ, that love the NW side of ABQ and those that love 4-hills, Corrales and Rio Rancho.

It would be better to see what you would like to be close to and see how you feel about the area.

If you would like to discuss you can message me or email me or call.

Good luck on your home search. Please let me know if I can help. Take care.

Welcome to Albuquerque! It depends on your preferences of living and your job, maybe your kids school (if you have kids). Newer constructions are at NW part of town. Both side have newer and older neighborhood. If you tell me what's your dream home and neighborhood, I can start by give you a few communities as recommendation. It's a lot easier to visit in person, but that's a start.

You can e-mail or call me on my cell phone or (505) 259-8775.
I'm looking forward to help you relocate to Albuquerque!
