2014 "new home" "real estate"

2014 “new home” “real estate”

Well, it took a while (365 days, in fact), but here we are in the New Year. What does 2014 have in store for you? Do you plan on making this the year you quit smoking or drop those ten pounds that have been bugging you? Maybe take up a new hobby? What about buying a new home or a place to spend family vacations? While New Year’s resolutions that focus on self-improvement often fall by the wayside when your daily routines set in, purchasing a new home or vacation property is a concrete goal you can actually plan for.

If this is the year you move to a new house or go for it and buy a mountain respite for weekend getaways, we’re excited for you—real estate decisions provide you with a great feeling of moving forward and starting the next chapter of your life, not to mention the financial benefits of investing in property. What’s great about New Mexico (besides the enchanting scenery, of course) is that home prices are "home sweet home" home "buying a home" "real estate" "new mexico"comparatively lower to other southwestern states—while it’s unfortunate that many people moved out of state in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the exodus left a good amount of inventory—there are good deals to be had, and while prices are showing a gradual but steady climb, the economics still favor the buyer.

Still, the market is improving. Consumer confidence is growing every month, as unemployment decreases little by little. Home prices will go up accordingly, which means there might not be a better year for buying a new home than this one. If this is your year, we’d love to help you find the perfect house in Southern New Mexico!
