I work and live up near this area. There are some very nice neighborhoods not too far from the Lamb/Pecos/Centennial. There are a couple of new home developments up there are well that are offering some pretty good incentives.
You will want to be careful though not to go looking too close to the "Pig Farm" as the smell can be a big factor in purchase and resale of a home.
If there anything else I can help you with please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
