I believe things are picking up. In and around the area has been slow the past couple years. It is a hard market to read based on many factors but From what I have seen so far this year (and late last) there is movement.....I can see it gaining momentum!

Maybe if you would have paid your bills, you would still have your house. Take some personal responsibility. You ruined your own credit, BUB

Realtor's work on commission so they don't get paid unless they produce a sale! If you have a written agreement or a broker compensation agreement, or a buyer broker agreement all which are legal contracts then you should honor your commitment to your Realtor as that would be offered in return. If you have a Realtor working for you without an agreement there still is common courtesy. Some Realtor don't get a written agreement because it scares some buyers upfront yet they continue to work on their behalf wanting to earn business. While there is no legal obligation without a contract, honoring a relationship ensures that the Realtor doesn't spend their time and energy on you for no reason. As a buyer it cost you nothing to have expert advice and direction from a Realtor because the seller pays the commission. So really what you are trying to do is cut out the Realtor commission from the selling price and put your self in jeopardy of getting taken advantage of. I would never suggest a buyer conduct business without someone looking out for them. Who knows if your builder friend is going to give you the best product or price? ... more

Las Cruces is a safe town overall. I suggest you begin your search in person as to what appeals to your tastes. Being from out of town makes things difficult at first, but to get a feel of the city you have to see it in person. Unless you are planning to buy sight unseen I think working directly with your Realtor upon arrival will help ease your worries. Need a Realtor? check me out at ... more

Check CNNmoney .com. They project Las Cruces housing prices will rise 9.3% over the next year. With housing prices rising across the US, this will result in people in places like San Francisco selling out and moving to lower priced but attractive cities like Las Cruces. ... more

Can always ask but whether or not they get it or it is appropriate depends on the specific terms of your contract.

Short answer: NO (I really doubt it)

Long answer: The zone code for the municipality specifically identifies allowable uses in each zone.

I did not see a link to an online version of the zone code at the city website (, but it might be there. The Community Development link (under City Departments) mentions a planning and zoning commission, and has contact information for their department. To be certain, you will need to review the zone code and pose the question to somebody at the city who has the authority to grant or deny your request.

I expect the R-1 zone, because it is typically very restrictive, will not allow businesses with onsite customers. The intent of most R-1 codes is to limit the intensity of use (traffic, parking, etc.) and preserve the residential character and attributes for all properties in the zone.

Another way to look at it.....If your house was in an R-1 neighborhood, would you want your neighbor to run a business and lease rooms to other businesses. Probably not.

Also, if you are getting a residential loan, your lender will likely require you occupy the property too.

Dear Jinnie,

Yes Huntington Drive is close to the Telshor area. Not a bad area as located very near to Memorial Hospital, NMSU and Shopping. There are internet net sites that will give you crime statistics for cities and specific areas. Just google search.

Hope this helps you!

A bridge loan is a temporary loan and secured by your current home--it bridges the gap between the selling of a home and the buying of another, if the current home has not yet sold--however, if you currently have a mortgage you may not qualify; therefore, not knowing your financials--visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first and see exactly what options you may have; your loan officer can best advise as it relates to your specific situation. ... more
