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.
