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!

Your Lender of Choice will calculate your debt to income ratio. Yes, that could affect you prequalifying for a mortgage. Please consult with your Lender. Getting prequalified with a Lender does not mean you are buying a house today! But your Lender will be able to answer these kind of questions for you! Encourage calling a local Lender! ... more

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 www.newhappyhome.com ... more

Carole Myre answered:
Spend a little time in both Places. They are very different. Sante Fe is much more expensive, but has a lot of culture, Art, and adobe homes. The shopping and dining can be very upscale

Las Cruces would be my choice, I enjoy the milder winters, the slower pace, and the reasonably priced homes and living expenses.

You would be better served to address your question directly with the Las Cruces Public Schools. Realtors are hesitant to provide school information because districts are often re-mapped. http://lcps.k12.nm.us/ ... more

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