Hi Susan, I have lived in High Rolls for almost 9 years and have a well at my home. The water, like Las Cruces, is hard water; however, I have installed the high tech dual tank water softener system and have no problems. The well is a great well with no low pressure issues. My friends who live here have not experienced any problems that they have told me about. It's a great place to live because it's close enough to town to be convenient and it's cool in the summer months. My place has refrigerated air and central heat. Drive over and check the place out. We have a general store with a small restaurant with a great pizza maker who hales from Arizona. It's peaceful and serene. ... more

Gosh, RN's are needed everywhere. The problem is that here in the central valley of
California; prices for homes are ridiculously high. We have several good San Luis Obispo, Sierra is the place to go to, and Twin Cities is up the grade. You will like living down the grade better. Cities like Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo, Grover beach, Pismo and Shell Beach are cool and they all have nurse positions. Look up craigs list for San Luis Obispo county. We are a beautiful county with very little traffic and you can look up want ads online for the San Luis Obispo Tribune. We have a great quality of life. You work and then you run your dog at the beach.So much to do. Lots of young college students here in SLO so lots of great activities for young ones. Thursday nights we have streets closed down in San Luis Obispo (SLO) and there is a great farmers market here with live bands and fresh produce and lots of gifts and all the stores stay open too. We call it SLO for a reason. No crazy traffic, no big bar brawls, nice beaches,lots of good relaxing things to do after work. I think you should gather up a couple bucks and try a couple days here. Housing is expensive but RN's do find roommates easily. We do need more medical people here...hope this helps...Marlene ... more

Pedestrian traffic is somewhat scarce in Albuquerque. It seems that its not only L.A. where no one walks!

This was also important to me when I was considering areas to live. The only real places where I see people consistently walk/bike/take alternate forms of transport (that actually are effective) is in what is called the Zipper and through uptown. The zipper ranges from East Nob Hill (Ridgecrest etc) west all the way to the river, but I would focus in East Nob Hill / Ridgecrest. Here you will find less rentals than throughout the University area/Downtown. If you find that you do not want to be too close to Central Ave. venture north into the North Campus/Altura park area near i-40/Carlisle. This is such a fabulous gem that sits nestled in what I would consider one of the most convenient locations in Albuquerque.

If you venture up to Uptown, you will be limited to a somewhat small radius around the Louisiana Corridor. This is between Washington-Louisiana from Lomas to Menaul.

A great tool to get an idea of areas/prices is to look at this list. All of it is broken down by geographical neighborhoods and sorted by price. Take a look and see if this helps.

I'd be glad to help if you need anything else! Good Luck! Maybe we'll run into eachother someday on foot!

Robert S answered:
We have lived in Corrales for over 26 years, have never had a water softener, and have had to replace two facets because of hard warter problems in that time frame. The gift of Corrales is that if you want to escape the desert, you can without expending a fortune. In surrounding communities water restrictions often occur in the summer and require watering on days scheduled by the community ordinances, you can be fined for wasting water, and there can be sur charges if you exceed specified amounts of water usage. If you love a lawn, Corrales is the only place to live. In this area, you can lose a healthy lawn in three days in the heavy summer if you do not have access to water. Temperatures in the 90's, relative humidities in the single digits, and winds of 10-15 miles per hour will completely dry out your lawn to the roots very fast if you do not have access to water. ... more

It depends on where you want to purchase. Counties, and Cities have specific zoning. Also, neighborhoods have restrictions that limit the kind of homes that people can live in. I understand your frustration, but ultimately these covenants are there to protect property values.

Are you planning to stay in New Mexico? There's a great neighborhood about 20 minutes from Raleigh that has camping/camper lots on a lake. The neighborhood has pool, tennis, recreational activities, and is gated. You can also buy the lot with a camper already in place. Here's the community's site:

I wouldn't be surprised if there are similar neighborhoods in your area. I'd recommend contacting a buyers agent to find out where. It doesn't cost you anything to use an agent, and this way, you'll have someone looking out for your interests!

A recent report noted the trend over the last 50 or 60 years to more rainfall, less snow. If you're anywhere near mountains, this is a bad thing, because the snow holds the moisture until summer, whereas more of rain just evaporates immediately or runs off. A short version of the link is below -- Michael Odza, ... more

When my family looked across the US for somewhere to move from Northern California, we chose Santa Fe. Why? A smallish town (70,000), real climates but not too harsh, all the culture we could handle, a diverse population, close to the mountains, progressive politics.... We've been here for 6 years, and really enjoy it. The town has delivered on most of its promises. And it even has a Trader Joe's now!
I'm a realtor here now - my wife teaches at an elementary school. The housing market here is different to the rest of NM - more expensive, with median price of $425,000, although I've sold nice condos to people for less than $200k. So it's not a trivial decision. But, for us, the right one.
