1 acre of land for sale about 13 miles SW of Deming, New Mexico with power just across the street! It’s a rural agricultural area with pumpkins growing along the way to town in sunny warm Luna County. Deming is about 45 minutes W of Las Cruces, NM between Tucson, Arizona and El Paso, Texas. It is a dry, warm, breezy climate making the temperatures surprisingly comfortable for the desert!

All of the photos were taken in February 2018 of the property. They are corner lots with great access from three sides! Hondale Road SW is a graveled county road along the S of the property and there is power sitting along this road across the street. We highlighted this in the aerial photos. You would need to contact the local power company for the cost to bring it to the property. Acoma Road runs along the N and Almamdra runs along the W as seen in the parcel map. The property is just under 1.45 miles west of Hermanas Rd which is the paved road that takes you back to town.

The property sits down on the valley floor with scattered brush, grass and native plants. The closest neighbor appears to be about 1/4 mile SE and you can see them in image #73. There are not many neighbors around at this time so plenty of privacy!

It is 2 adjoining ½ acre lots totaling 1 acre and we are selling them together. I do believe that keeping these lots together brings a higher value to them although they can be split apart – why would you want to! You do have the right to build on each parcel or put one home on all of it.

The Florida Mountains are about 12 miles away from the NE to the SE and there is great details in her rugged rocky peaks. She rises to 7,295 feet at Florida Peak with sunny blue skies above! I have had the chance a few times now to watch the sunset over the Florida Mountains and it is spectacular! To the south are the Tres Hermanas Mountains which sit in the southern part of Luna County.

On the way out to the property, I passed quite a few farms! The color contrast of the green crops and the winter desert was just gorgeous. I also stopped near a herd of very healthy looking cows! A few of them even posed for my camera.

I made a stop at the Caballo Lake State Park in early 2018, just 14 miles south of Truth or Consequences. When I saw both the flags flying proudly, I just had to snap a picture.

Wow! What a pretty place to be! I ventured out onto the dock to look around, but Buddy was a little wary and decided to keep watch from land.

I also stopped by the Riverside Recreation Area and saw all sorts of little birds flitting around. Some of them right above me! I’m not sure exactly what kind of birds they were, but they sure were cute.

I also saw a gentleman out fishing! I asked what kind of fish he was catching and he rattled off quite a few different types! Wow! I asked if he catches them for food or for release and he said he lets the little guys go. He caught one when I was out there watching! I asked how often he went fishing and he said that since he works for the park, he goes fishing on all of his lunch breaks! Wish I could do that!

The property is zoned for a home or manufactured home and limited RV use. In January 2013, I asked the zoning department about RV use. I was told that on 1/2 an acre, if you had an RV with no utilities on site, that you can stay up to 30 calendar days a year in your RV. If you had a septic and well with a source of electricity that you can stay up to 240 days a year with a permit that is free from their office. That source of electricity can be an alternative energy like solar. We included a link to the county zoning ordinance under the Zoning information at the top of our listing so you can read further.

Deming is a small town of about 14,647 and Luna County has a population of about 26,129. It’s about 60 miles west of Las Cruces, NM and 33 miles N of the border of Mexico. Besides the low cost of living and affordable taxes, it offers a municipal airport, hospital/ambulance service, nursing home, senior citizens center, library, over 40 churches, over 80 listed organizations, 18 hole golf course, civic center, public auditorium, schools and a community college.

Many retirees and people with arthritis are drawn to this area because of the affordability of land and the dry arid climate with low humidity. The warm sunshine keeps the swelling and inflammation down and this is something that I can certainly relate to and I'm 52! I often talk to people about the Deming area which sits close to the border of Mexico

If you've been looking for an affordable place in the desert to enjoy the warm sunshine in the winter check this out! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

The Center for Innovation, Testing, and Evaluation (CITE) Plans to Build It's $1 Billion Futuristic City Near Deming, New Mexico!

The Center for Innovation, Testing, and Evaluation (CITE) is set to be build their $1 billion futuristic research city near Deming, New Mexico. It plans to have green energy powering the buildings, self-driving cars navigating the tree lined streets, with schools, high-rises and suburbs meant for a population of 35,000 that will never actually live there! Wow!

Yep that’s right, it’s a research city with visions of renewable energy sources like solar, wind, geothermal and bio power plants running side-by-side with new forms of water treatment and cyber-security projects. It expects to employ 350 people directly, and up to 3,500 contractors will be hired to supplement them.

I’ve spent quite some time researching the exact location and I’ve found a few different reports but all say along the Interstate 10 corridor straddling Luna County and Doña Ana County and will encompass roughly 18 square miles. I contacted the planning department and they said they did not have the location yet but something was going on at the county planning…or something like that!

Click here to read more about this project on CITE’s website. I suggest you scroll towards the bottom to watch some pretty informative videos! I’ll keep you updated as I find out more information! It sounds like Luna County might just “Meet George Jetson!”

A video I made of my journey to Luna County in October 2015. Buddy and I hiked into a canyon to see petroglyphs in a cave! Wow was that fabulous!
