Albuquerque Real Estate Information
Located at 5285 feet, Albuquerque is the second most
famous "Mile-High" City. Albuquerque is a city of diversity,
with geographic and historic circumstances that brought Native American,
Hispanic and Anglo cultures together to create a unique multicultural
community. As one can imagine, Albuquerque is constantly changing and
growing. New companies are arriving, bringing new jobs with them. Housing
continues to develop with costs staying below the national average.
The metro area population now exceeds one-half million. All these facts
makes Albuquerque and New Mexico a great place to visit and an even
better place to live. The land awes and inspires with the Sandia and
Manzano Mountains to the east, the river valley cutting through the
city and the West Mesa escarpment with its ghosts of volcanic activity.
The weather is mild and it is not unusual for a 70-degree day during
the winter, when people can be seen snow skiing at Sandia Peak Ski Area
in shorts. Albuquerque is a year-round destination for travelers, offering
recreational activities such as white water rafting, the Kodak Albuquerque
International Balloon Fiesta, gambling for the high-stakes enthusiast,
hiking, skiing, world class bird watching and great dining. The mixture
of old and new architectural styles is stunning. In spite of the size
of the city and all of the amenities that go along with big city life,
Albuquerque manages to retain a small town charm.
The city is divided into four quadrants: NE, NW, SW,
and SE. Each area offers its own unique qualities.
The Northeast section contains many large residential areas. A diversity
of housing can be found in the NE Heights ranging from large, custom
homes, tract neighborhoods, to smaller, older communities. Homes for
almost every taste and lifestyle can probably be located in this area.
Also found here are many of the cities large shopping areas, businesses,
The Northwest section has two main areas: the North Valley and the
West Mesa (or West side). The Valley includes a unique mix of Albuquerque's
exclusive housing communities, farms, and some of the city's oldest
communities, all close to the banks of the Rio Grande River. Albuquerque's
Old Town is in this area of town. The West side is the city's fastest
growing area. Residential housing has increased dramatically in the
past few years causing a huge increase in business growth as well.
The Southwest section also runs along the Rio Grande and includes many
farms. This area is a diverse blend of old and new, large and small.
Several commercial and industrial parks are also found in this area.
The Southeast section includes Kirtland Air Force Base and Sandia National
Laboratories, two of the cities largest employers. Residential areas
range from older exclusive neighborhoods to new, developing areas.
