PROPERTY INFORMATION

I was researching the origin of the Land of Enchantment and came across their State song. I chuckled after reading the first verse - I think Buddy wrote it just for me!

The New Mexico State Ballad
“Land of Enchantment- New Mexico”
by Martin Murphy, Chick Raines and Don Cook

I met a lady in my drifting days
I quickly fell under the spell of her loving ways
A rose in the desert I loved her so
In the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico

As we watched the sunset by the Rio Grande
A mission bell rang farewell she took my hand
She said "come back amigo no matter where you go"
To the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico

From her arms I wandered, far across the sea
I often heard her gentle words haunting me
"Come back amigo, I miss you so"
To the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico

So come back amigo no matter where you go
To the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico


1/2 acre of land for sale in Rio Rancho, New Mexico on paved Northern Boulevard which has power running along it! It sits 1 block outside of the current city limits and it's a quick trip back to town. The cheapest I found any lots for sale on Northern Boulevard in this area on Realtor.com was 0.34 acres for $8500!

Its within an hour of Santa Fe, about 28 miles NW of Albuquerque International Sunport Airport, 8 miles NW of the Presbyterian Rust Medical Center Emergency, and 8 miles SW of the UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center Emergency.

I have not had a chance to view this property and the photos are from the street views on Google and Bing maps. Northern Boulevard is a paved road along the south that has power running along it.



There is also power running along the W side of the property between the neighbor. There is a fire hydrant in the street.



I contact the City of Rio Rancho and they said there isn't any water connection in the street and you would need to install a well or use a holding tank. There is a public bulk water fill station in the area.

The property is flat and covered in sagebrush, native plants and I see a few chollas sprinkled about. The photos were taken during different times of the year and you can see how green it is at times, especially the neighbors trees!

There are is a pretty long view from the NE to the SE of the Sandia Mountains! She has pretty stripes that run thru her top peaks, interesting to look at! Sandia Peak rises to 10,678 feet and the mountain range lies largely within the Cibola National Forest.



I seldom come across property sitting along a paved road with power along it at the price I sell! If you've been looking for an inexpensive spot for a home or manufactured home outside the city limits I think this is a fabulous price! The ones sitting along Northern Boulevard in the area are priced at $8500 for 0.35 acres and $29,900 for 1 acre! Char the Explorer : )


Financing Price: $11,000

Terms with $250 down payment: $10,750 at 8% interest with approximately 58 monthly payments of $225.

Any down payment made over the required $250 Smile4u will match off of the balance.

90 Days Early Bird Payoff with $250 down! If $5,500 is paid toward the property within 90 days from the contract date Smile4u will waive the remaining balance!

180 Days Work Like A Dog Early Payoff with $250 down! If $6,875 of principal is paid in the first 180 days from the contract date Smile4u will waive the remaining balance!

The down payment applies to the 90 & 180 day early payoff amounts but we do not match it for the early payoff amounts.

We will write both of the early payoff options into the contract. If at any time during the 90 or 180 day period you hit those amounts we will waive the remaining balance and deed the property to you. Dream big!

Sandoval County Area and Rio Rancho Subdivision Photos


Rio Rancho Update: At the end of January, 2015 I spent two days taking photos from 23 different places around Rio Rancho. I first noticed the Presbyterian Rust Medical Center just south of Southern Boulevard on Unser had a huge crane sitting out front of it. This is by Intel and I didn’t realize there was a major hospital so close by the southern units! I read that it is undergoing an $80 million expansion adding a tower with 120 additional beds and cancer patient services. It opened in October 2011 with 68 beds and was designed to accommodate growing populations which this places continues to do!



I watched the sunset from unit 4 in the SW part of the city. Wow was it a beautiful sunset! I could see the city lights of Albuquerque across the valley and it was eventually dark enough to see the Man In the Moon above the pink and orange night sky!



As I sat watching the sunset I mentioned that I either wanted to go to a fabulous pasta house or hole in the wall Mexican for dinner! I didn't really have a favorite restaurant for as many times as I've been here. On the way back along Southern Boulevard we spotted Joe’s Pasta House and quickly turned into the parking lot. Talk about lucky!



It was a crowded place on a Friday night with a little bar where you can wait. I noticed it had a big beautiful glass jar of house made Sangria sitting there and although I prefer red wine I do enjoy a glass of sweet red once in a while! So I sat down and ordered a fabulous glass…ok I had two…and then one heck of a pasta dish! The bartender was such a friendly man who educated me about this long time Sicilian restaurant! Wow! Wow! Wow! I definitely have a favorite restaurant there now and I collected their business card on the way out!

Early the next morning I headed out to unit 3 which is in the very SW corner of Rio Rancho and spotted a few of hot air balloons. Rio Rancho is home of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta which takes place in early October and is the largest event in the world lasting 9 days and over 500 balloons yearly. The cool temperatures that time of year create the "Albuquerque box", a set of predictable wind patterns. Balloon Fiesta Park sits about 6 miles SE of Rio Rancho and I've added it to my bucket list!



Later on that morning I watched kids out jumping their motorcycles by units 1 & 2. There are some sand dunes on the very west side of Rio Rancho and I've had people tell me they played in these hills as kids. I sure spent a lot of time getting the perfect shot and they were good sports letting me watch. As much as I thought the young kid on the motor bike keeping up with the older kids was cool it was this older one on the green bike that was my favorite jump shot!



We made our way that day from the S to the N spotting a few cool birds, an old airplane over head and even a coyote. I literally ran right into the new 86 acre solar farm in Rio Rancho Estates Unit 6 by Northern and Encino by the water tower.



The $16-million Sandoval County Solar Energy Center project by PNM started construction in early fall 2014. The 82,350 solar panels will generate the energy used by 2,400 average residential customers. Cool!

While I must say I really enjoyed touring the southern units in Rio Rancho I also like the northern part which is a lot different with its big rolling hills hidden in the trees and cactus! I was surprised by the tall chollas with their yellow and orange waxy flowers that spread across one of the gentle rolling valleys as far as I could see in unit 26! They were so thick – beautiful!



You can see for miles over the valley to Albuquerque from some parts up here and the growth in the distance around the city center and surrounding neighborhoods. While it remains largely undeveloped it too has many people living up in these areas hidden in the trees and I saw quite a few off grid homes with solar panels set up.



And I sat up there and watched the sunset over Rio Rancho again on the Sandia Mountains. She has some interesting massive rocks at the top of her that really reflects the sunset off them!



And once the sun went down on came the lights of Albuquerque again lighting up the valley below! If you're considering living here I think it would be a great idea to not only view the property during the day time but at night also! Imagine big picture windows overlooking the Sandia Mountains glowing pink from the reflection of the sunset and the city lights of Albuquerque at night!



I couldn't think of a better way to end my day than repeating what we had done the night before so back to Joe’s Paste House I went for another glass of sangria and seafood this time! I spotted Joe’s in a few local flyers and read that it was voted “Best of the City Top 5” for 2014 by Albuquerque the Magazine! I sure can pick them!



A special shout out to our fearless mascot Buddy who helped by marking several of the properties! It really was pretty the way he blended into the blonde landscape and he looked so handsome in his Little Stud jacket! He was a tired man at the end of the day with his tongue sticking out! He lost all his front teeth several years ago in a fight over a dog bone and the older he gets the more his tongue sticks out! Still good looking none the less!




Rio Rancho is the 3rd largest city in NM at about 91,956 people, is the fastest growing community in NM and one of the fastest growing in the Southwest! It’s within an hour of Santa Fe and 30 miles NW of Albuquerque International Sunport Airport. It is bordered by Albuquerque, the Santa Ana Indian Reservation, Bernalillo and Corrales and the Rio Puerco Basin.

It sits high atop a mesa offering stunning views of the Sandia Mountains and Rio Grande River! At 5,290 feet, the high desert offers year round perfect weather with winter temperatures averaging 49 and summertime averaging 91. There are 330 sunny days a year with 8.2 inches of rainfall. It snows several times during the winter but usually melts the same day.

It is part of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical Area and big magazines have frequently named it among the top 100 places to live. In 2013 it was listed in the “10 Best Towns For Families” by Family Circle Magazine for its amenities including the indoor aquatic center, sports complex, acres of parks and miles of bike trails. It has also been recognized in the top places to launch a business, raise a kid, and best towns for families frequently by other magazines.

Anchored by chip maker Intel, I sure have seen this place grow since I started watching the growth here in 2003. New schools, city center, hospital, the list goes on and on. Here are some of the highlights:

*In January 2015 I saw the $80 Million expansion of the Presbyterian Rust Medical Center just south of Southern Boulevard on Unser. The hospital currently has 68 beds and is adding an additional 120 additional beds and cancer patient services.

*In January 2015 I caught my first glimpse of the 86 acre solar farm in Rio Rancho Estates Unit 6 by Northern and Encino by the water tower. The $16-million Sandoval County Solar Energy Center project by PNM started construction in early fall 2014. The 82,350 solar panels will generate the energy used by 2,400 average residential customers. Cool!

*In January 2015 I ate at Joe's Paste House on Southern Boulevard for my first time! Ha!

*In July 2012 the Sandoval Regional Medical Center with its emergency room had their grand opening! This is located at the city center.

*In August, 2011 the Rail Runner commuter train line pulled into Rio Rancho! This train runs between Santa Fe, Rio Rancho, Albuquerque, Los Lunas and Belen.

*In August 2010, the Central New Mexico (CNM) Community College opened at the new city center.

*The first building as part of the University of New Mexico Regional Medical Center opened in January 2010. Once completed, the $200 million facility will house 68 hospital beds and will include an emergency room and surgical center.

*In the fall of 2009, V. Sue Cleveland High School opened - home of the Storms!

*Hewlett Packard Tech Center opened their 218,000 square foot building at the City Center in December 2009.

*The new city hall that opened in 2007.

*In October 2006 the Sandoval County Commissioners approved a master plan for a new city, Rio West, in the Rio Puerco Basin covering 18 miles. The County and the developer have ended their joint efforts on this project and continuing efforts will be by the developer.

*In the fall of 2006 the Santa Ana Star Center, a major component in the City Center, opened.

Wikipedia has some great information about the growth in Rio Rancho. The population in 2010 was 88,901. The estimated population in 2012 was 90,818. The US Census Bureau shows the projected population growth for 2015 of 99,610. It will be interesting to see where it is come the end of 2015.
