Hi Penny:

There is a gravel mining operation just north of Anasazi Trails Subdivision, however, I believe it is operated by LaFarge North America, Inc. They can be reached at 343-7800. To be honest, I don't know if they still have ownership of this mine, or if it is wholly owned by a company out of Washington State. There is also a time limit with regard to how long they can run this mine under their current guidelines. When the properties started being developed around the gravel mine, there were agreements made between the homeowner associations and LaFarge. There is mapping available that shows the boundaries of this mine, unfortunately, I cannot paste it to this e-mail.

Hello Penny,
The shopping center also has a lunch counter in the Merc where many of us stop for a quick bite. Rounding out the center is a hair salon, art gallery and First Community Bank. Many special events are staged in and around the center throughout the year, making it a true community center.

Wow I love that you asked this. Rich has given a great insight into the area. Placitas is an upper end neighborhood with great price stability. Thats why this property is unheard of in this area. This home will bring in an appraisal of $570k to $590k in today's market. This is what you would expect from a short sale, foreclosure, bank owned property if that ws typical for this area but its not. Historically it is a great place to live; privacy, acreage and more. The owner has gone on to do philanthropic work outside of New Mexico. You could make a movie on the life changing path she took and the affect she is making. Unfortuneatly for her (but fortunately for the buyer) she has to sell now! The fact that its not a bank owned means you will not have to work so hard to get as everyone will tell you that short sale foreclosure bank owned properties come with. Furthermore if you have a Loan to Value issue with your loan approval then this home is for you. You get instant equity in a neighborhood that is known for price stability and an easier process to get through. Now if you look at posts here and on the net you will never see us promote a property like this but seeing the question seemed made for it. 505-980-2999 if this property might work or you have further questions. ... more

Hi Dave

Placitas is a GREAT community! I lived there several years ago and enjoyed it very much. There are many factors about why there are so many homes on the market, but that just makes your position as a buyer that much better. If you buy smart, you can avoid potential problems. And you should ALWAYS use a Realtor when you buy because we can protect you and it costs you nothing extra. I don't want to steer you away form buying a property with a well, but you definitely have that option as many of the newer subdivisions have great water systems, as well as underground utilities.... Email me at and let me know how I can help you.
