There are a number of factors that can come into play (e.g. size, type, etc.). I would recommend contacting a few local stucco companies to give you quotes and provide you with all of your options.

Hello -

I showed this property over the weekend, and I would estimate between 2000 - 2300. There is no square footage listed in the MLS. This is a wonderful property and a good value. Two large living areas and the studio/office next to the garage is bright and sunny. It is bank owned. If you would like to take a look, please let me know.

Hello Noelle,

Thank you for your question. I am familiar with Santo Nino off Richards Avenue, because my great niece attends school there. I am happy to research it. Do you have any questions about the property at 34 Cresencio Lane? I am available at 505-490-0615 for any questions.

Thank you for your time,

Santa Fe has a municipal water system, which draws water from three main sources: reservoirs in the mountain watershed above the city (in other words, from the snowpack -- the city is at 7,000 feet, and the mountains reach 12,000 ft.), fields of city-owned wells, and from the Rio Grande.

In the unincorporated areas in the county surrounding the city limits, some areas have shared water systems, and others feature homes with their own wells. In the MLS system, the source of the water (well, shared well or municipal) is always mentioned. If it isn't, and the home is within city limits, it almost certainly has municipal water.

If your question is really, is there enough water, well, that's a hot topic, which is relevant to the entire western half of the country! Santa Fe city says it does, due to longterm planning over the last 20 years and a fairly aggressive water conservation drive, and increasingly stringent requirements in new construction. But there are dissenters, and everyone acknowledges that we live in a semi-arid climate zone -- albeit at the foot of mountains.

The city's water department has links to multiple studies of the water supply:

And if you want to build or remodel "green," I invite you to contact us. We have a great deal of experience with energy and water conservation building techniques, especially for Northern New Mexico climate:

Hi Maxine,
Here's a link to a great site for anyone interested in Santa Fe's water availability.
As you'll see, we have the lowest water useage per household of any city - in other words we conserve our water resources better than most, and the site will show you all the different sources for current and future water supplies for our city.
And yes, the water source - whether well, community or city - should be listed for any property in our MLS. If you see a property you're interested in that's FSBO and it doesn't show the water source, just ask the seller.

Hannah Levbarg answered:
To expand on Aaron's commentary in his second point, there is a bit of a "drag" on the market when doing a comparative market analysis - as a broker, for a buyer client. Buyers are potentially shopping the WHOLE market, so they are seeing "bargains" alongside regular sales, and may begin to think that way. Also, some distressed properties are in very good shape, physically, and this amplifies the effect in the marketplace - a buyer is really weighing this whole picture and questioning higher prices, especially if unaware of the status of the home. When advising sellers on setting price, if there is a significant number of foreclosure homes that are comparable in the particular market, and we see that homes have been selling at lower prices, we may include one in our analysis to help demonstrate that market reality. However, if there are plenty of non-distressed properties to compare, both recently sold and currently active, those homes will be the reference points for the analysis. ... more

Joan Grossman answered:
I just sold a house that was in the middle of town but not on a sewer that is serviced by the City. The solution to this situation is that the neighbors that share the line will be forming an agreement for sharing of future maintenance or replacement. Their sewer line is sub-standard at 4" and below the City code, but at the point that it is replaced with a 5" line they can go to the City and ask for it to be adopted for City maintenance. ... more

Gee ed, I spoke with 2 contractors and they agreed with everything I said. Guess you're the only one who knows what he's talking about….. "Expanding a bath…." per se does not mean replacing or adding a bathroom, with all that entails. As one other responder said, moving/putting up interior walls to expand a room, add a closet, etc. can be quite economical. That's why virtually all of us have advised the poster to call in contractors to discuss the scope of the project and get bids. I've done a ton of remodeling, and I do know what I'm talking about. Aside from your unwarranted slam, I agree with the rest of your advice. ... more

Emily Medvec answered:
Ron, I see your question is still out there. Market conditions in Santa Fe, NM are not even close to your statement even going back to 2007 or certainly to today. My best advice would be to contact a local Santa Fe Realtor for current stats and information. Homes are selling in Santa Fe everyday. If you are looking to take advantage of our market today and the current interest rates, it is best to work with a buyer broker or a Realtor experienced in Relocation. I am available to help you save time and money and certainly give you real stats and a better explanation of our real estate market and opportunities. ... more
