Go to your "My Listings" page and look for the listing you want to send report for, click on "Send Client Listing Reports" and take it from there. However, if you do not see the listing in your list, scroll to bottom and click on the link that says: "Not seeing some of your listings on this page? Try to find or submit them here." Good luck Gregory! ... more

What I hear is---though I know the Santa Fe market better---is that both markets have bottomed out, basically, until further notice of some next catastrophe, and prices are jumping around a bit on the bottom. Inventory has decreased and many bargains have been snapped up. Yet, some prices continue to fall as they look for the point where the property sells. My sense is that Taos and more rural properties will be better bargains in general, but that it will depend on where you really want to live and will be on a case by case basis.

Some pockets in Santa Fe, say, seem to be holding steady, rising a tiny bit, and are getting multiple offers and other signs of being correctly/well priced.

I have listings in Pilar but would defer to a Taos expert regarding the Taos market.

The (so-called?) recovery is far from complete and is patchwork-y, but the market is becoming more balanced as far as favoring not only buyers and not only sellers.

Best wishes on your quest.

Hi Laura,

No one can really answer that, but you. You need to evaluate the crime statistics to determine if the findings are what makes you feel safe in a neighborhood. You cannot rely on any ones opinion.

What was your impression of the stats?

Hi Laura,

It could be possible. You can use the following resources to start your search:

Look for Real Estate Companies that are full service, including a property management divison.
Property Managers in New Mexico also have a Real Estate license. At Garland Realty & Development here in Las Cruces NM I have worked on a number of deals with other Realtors in our office. ... more

At the link below, I have a recent article on my site about expectations for Santa Fe and Taos real estate markets. While Albuquerque is growing as well, note that Santa Fe is in the top 10 urban areas for growth expectations. Your money will go farther in ABQ though. ... more

That depends on how bad your credit is. With the current housing crisis, the FHA has been a little more forgiving, but you'll pay a penalty in higher interest. The easiest thing to do is to contact a local Taos mortgage broker and get pre-qualified. There's no obligation or cost, and you'll get a rundown of what you can and cannot qualify for in our market.

Joan,

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.
