First, begin by contacting the local Taos Board of Realtors for contact information on the several of your local brokerages. Then call the managing broker and ask them to make a referral to an expereinced agent and/or property manager who can begin to work with you to find your rent with option to purchase home. The phone is 575-758-7411 and their web site is www.taosmls.net. My recommend would be to find an experienced Realtor who knows your market and would be best informed on current opportunties. Best of luck in your efforts!... more
Hey Connie - I will almost bet the lender will request a copy of the expired or cancelled listing agreement and that should solve any confusion. I ran into this myself before several years ago and the contract was the only thing that mattered to them as our listings filter into so many websites these days that many linger on forever it seems.
Josejose, "not well" is the answer. You gotta have a score of 620+ to get the best rates. You could work with a credit repair company like LexingtonLaw.com to fix it. You should be able to get into the upper 600s or 700s in a few months if your credit is not a complete disaster. They can fix a lot for you -- make sure you keep on top of it though.

NM is a privacy state, so sales are not posted in newspapers, etc. They are reported to the county for tax purposes, but that's about it. I'd love it if you'd write some design posts for my blog (link below), which should give you some exposure, but I'm not allowed to give out sold addresses from the MLS.
You could also cultivate some relationships with real estate people who work mostly with vacation home buyers, though the market right now is pretty slow. I know I would give out references fro interior design to my buyers if they asked.... more

Ask about the well and septic system, how new, how deep and if any inspections have been done. Check on any encroachments on the property by utility companies. Check out www.usda.gov about assistance the government might be offering in the form of incentive loans for rural areas. Always check with a local lender to see if they have experience with your type of situation. If you are a first time home buyer or if you have not lived in a home you owned for more than 3 years, you may qualify for a New Mexico Finance Authority (MFA) First time home buyers grant of 3% of the purchase price to use towards your down payment.... more
