Some great answers here... Corrales for sure, North Valley areas (including Los Ranchos), you can get lots of home for the money in Rio Rancho so should look at that also.

Yes it is. Keep a close eye on Craigslist. The kind of place you're talking about doesn't stay on the market for long.

Probably downtown, Railyard and South Capitol. Downtown you can take advantage of all the activities around the Plaza. The Railyard is an up and coming district, with some cool loft-style units and older smaller homes. South Capitol is a mature, eclectic neighborhood anchored by a great elementary school, and it's walking distance to the Plaza and downtown area. ... more

You could get a detailed map at the Deming courthouse, then look for the county assessors office on the second floor, the copies are like a dollar each and they'll mark your spot on the map. You will need two maps. A large map and a magnified map. Many roads aren't marked so you may need to count miles to get an idea of where your land is ... more

I agree. I looked at pics of a listing this morning of a house I had visited, and the person taking the picture showed the owner's furniture, not features of the house. The house had a beautiful mid-century fireplace wall and glass details to the side that weren't even shown. When I sold my home in Texas, I had to fix two things that were required to be fixed before the sale could proceed: a handle on the sprinkler system, and one shingle on the roof. In Roswell, homes are up for sale that need minor to major repairs, painting, updates, concrete fixed, etc. you name it! It seems like every property is a fixer-upper. ... more

Right on, Spence! What he said. In the event that you are considering trying to sell your home yourself, here are a few things to consider:
1) sellers using Realtors typically receive a better price for their home, per data collected by the National Association of Realtors (2012 data);
2) sellers without professional representation lack the Errors & Omissions insurance that we all carry, thus missing potentially significant protection for legal claims based on a real estate transaction (the statute of limitations being six years...)
3) working with a Realtor creates maximum marketing exposure for your home, and Realtors representing buyers often won't even show their buyers For Sale By Owner properties, as their chances for receiving compensation for their services is very small.
4) real estate professionals provide thorough service including comprehensive market analysis for the best understanding of how to position your home to sell in a good time frame (or at all...); valuable input on preparing your home for sale with regard to staging and other more minor time or financial investments that can pay back in spades with regards to justifying higher pricing; negotiate with buyers and make sure that you only receive offers from qualified buyers; ensure that all details from offer to close, including inspections, objections, title issues and other possible hiccups, are handled smoothly and on time, alleviating stress and concerns that can arise when these elements aren't handled properly.

Give one of us a shout if you're in the market either way, you won't be sorry you did. Contact the Santa Fe Association of Realtors - www.sfar.com - for referrals, or ask a friend who's had a good experience buying or selling!

Kind regards,

Brittany Reed-allen answered:
Generally people consider anything In Mesa or Zia school districts as good and more desirable neighborhoods here. We recently bought here and did not buy in that area because the homes were too expensive and too small and for the most part the older homes were in desperate need of major over hauls. There are other pockets of town that are nice, you really just have to check it out. We are north of 21st but west of prince in a nice area, but across 21st is a different story and the closer you get to Llano Estacado up by Walmart seems to be less attractive as well. ... more

Well Gina, welcome to big government! Bureaucrats cannot get rich taxing the poor. I mean a government job only paying $50,000 plus with full benefits and retirement isn't much to receive when you consider how hard it is to work bankers hours with all known holidays off with full pay etc. Stuffing envelopes with bills and applying postage in a nice climate controlled office is really hard work!!!!! Unfortunately this is the new normal in America now. I guess we go along till we are poor or risk Obama putting us on the IRS hit list! ... more

Carlsbad NM has a good regional hospital. The website for the hospital is www.carlsbadmedicalcenter.com/

The CEO's name is Chad Campbell and the hospital's number is (575) 887-4100.

Yeah, you will probably get a call back from him if you call (they are that hands on, which is good for a hospital in an area of 43K people).

We are so blessed with low crime rates.

Gswt1999 answered:
This information is not accurate. In reference to road 5569 there are the adult and juvenile Detention Centers are about 3-4 miles away. They are NOT prisons but are holding facilities. Granted criminals are held here less than a year until sent to Prisons, but they are certainly not "maximum security prisons" by any means. Get your facts straight before you make comments if you want respect for your review.

As the others have said this listing is not close to the landfills. Even if it was, Rio Rancho does a good job of maintaining the landfills and I have never noticed a smell from them. Others may dispute this point but driving by them routinely, I have almost forgotten they are there. ... more
