The number of homes on the market that are newly listed has risen 21% and the number of active listings has risen 12%.

Northern Meadows Market Report November 2013   Northern Meadows' Real Estate Market has seen a lot of large changes over the last year. There are 17% more active homes on the market and 16% more homes newly listed on the market compared to October 2012. The most amazing changes are that homes under contract for a sale are up an incredible 54%! The number of homes sold is up an impressive 45% as well! There have been minor changes in the average sale price, but that could be changing soon as the inventory in Northern Meadows decreases. A first-time buyer or an investor can still find great values in Northern Meadows! Great deals are still available in Northern Meadows, but with the market possibly shifting, you may want to act quickly before they're gone!   If you'd like to check out on...

Loma Colorado Market Report November 2013     Rio Rancho's Loma Colorado community is a centrally located neighborhood that is full of beautiful, eco-friendly homes and enchanting mountain views and recreational areas. Homes in the neighborhood vary from one-story three-bedroom homes to two-story, six-bedroom luxury homes and the resale housing market for Loma Colorado is heating up as the weather gets cold! The developer of Loma Colorado, Pulte Homes, is still selling brand new homes and those homes are directly competing with existing home sales, so the analysis of the values of existing homes in the market is complicated. Loma Colorado is located the Rio Rancho MID area and there have been some big changes in that area in the past year. There are 22% more active listings, and a whop...

Enchanted Hills November 2013 Market Report   Enchanted Hills, on the northern end of Rio Rancho, has had some dramatic changes in its real estate market over the last year. There are 12% more homes on the market, 28% more homes under contract for sale and 20% more homes sold in the area. Enchanted Hills market is on fire! Prices have dipped slightly over the last year, so it is still a great market for potential buyers. The slight dip in prices may be indicating that many of the homes sold in Enchanted Hills during the last year have been distressed properties (foreclosures and short sales). These homes generally sell for less than market value, so they can be great homes for the right buyers. As these distressed properties clear from Enchanted Hills market, prices in the area should ...
