Albuquerque #1 Again - Poised For Growth - 08/26/08 09:01 PM
Forbes Magazine, reported today that the Albuquerque, NM real estate market is in the #1 spot for growth and recovery. We are not surprised. New Mexico's real estate prices, never having increased to bubble proportions, did not burst. So the state continues to experience only the gentle ripples typical of the NM real estate cycles. Not for New Mexico, the violent roller-coaster rides of other regions. The prediction of Forbes in not surprising. Fewer new housing starts are helping to decrease the new homes inventory and reduce competition with the resale market. In addition, the state continues to maintain and promote a great quality of life. We are the greenest city in America and we continue to generate (6 comments)
Albuquerque Housing Market Update - 08/26/08 07:56 PM
OverviewThe Greater Albuquerque Metropolitan Area real estate market continues to share the experiences (though comparatively less severe) of other cities across the country. The downturn that began in 2006 led to increases in foreclosures and a rise in inventory across the nation. The conditions brought about by sub-prime lending practices including adjustable rate mortgages and the ensuing tightening of lending practices have contributed to an ongoing and downward shift in the residential market. But New Mexico did not experience the rapid and inflationary increases experienced by many areas. Consequently the deflation has not been as great or as precipitous. While some (1 comments)
For its General Annual Meeting, the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce (GACC) invaded the home of the Lobos and descended into the Pit at the University of New Mexico (UNM) last Thursday. The athletes vacated the floor to 500 chamber members for whom the space was transformed for an elegant, inspirational luncheon. The Pit is a landmark stadium on the campus; branded for the team that calls it home. Mention the Pit, and it is immediately identified with UNM and athletes- wolves in their den, circling, moving, running, tumbling, tackling. attacking. The Pit is the playground of the Lobos football athletes watched by adoring screaming fans from (3 comments)
For me, the best thing about living in Albuquerque is being surrounded by the rest of New Mexico." When the above words of this post stared back at from the front page of the Albuquerque Sunday Journal this morning I thought I was reading an excerpt from one of my own Active Rain posts. Albuquerque, A Great Place to Call Home-Chaco Canyon Acoma, A Distinctive New Mexico Pueblo White Sands Monument Laguna Pueblo-Another Treat on Albuquerque's Doorstep Albuquerque-No Longer Well-Kept Secret Of Fairs Fiestas and This Time of Year Most of these are among my earliest posts.

Acoma - Distinctive New Mexico Pueblo - 08/06/08 11:02 AM
Acoma Pueblo, also called Sky City because of its stunningly isolated elevation at over 460 feet atop a sandstone mesa, is just 60 miles (about two hours) southwest of Albuquerque off I-40. Two thousand years old, the site is renowned as the oldest continuously inhabited community in North America and remains the spiritual and physical (to a few) home of the Acoma people. It is easy to see how the pueblo might have been able to hang on to earn that distinction. Even today, its naturally fortified position makes access challenging. The community does not allow visitors to wander unescorted around (3 comments)
Sanchez Canyon - A Hiking Destination Near New Albuquerque - 08/06/08 02:24 AM
To get to Sanchez Canyon, you travel north on Interstate 25 to exit 264. Next you travel west along Highway 16 to Highway 22. From Highway 22 north, go straight past the dam and follow the sign to the village of Cochiti Lake. Continue 2.8 miles north from the Lake Plaza shoppng center to Forest Road 289. Follow Forest Road 289 north for about 3.4 miles to the parking area at the site of the abandoned Eagle Canyoon pumice mines. (Don't try to negotiate Forest Road 289 in anything but a vehicle with a high clearance. It is a rough dirt track; not (4 comments)
Laguna Pueblo Another NM Treat on Albuquerque's Doorstep - 08/05/08 12:48 AM
A significant part of New Mexico's rich cultural heritage resides to a large extent in its vibrant reservation and pueblo communities that supply a year round feast of cultural activities. They celebrate feast days with dancing, food and art and craft shows of distinctive pottery, basket weaving, and food, of which my favorite is the ubiquitious fry bread. My husband says it's better than beignet New Orleans. Nineteen pueblos, New Mexico tribes, dot the greater Albuquerque landscape. I sometimes try to count them especially when I drive north to Santa Fe or Taos along I- 95. I self test myself to see if I can remember the order in which I (3 comments)
