ruidoso real estate: Ruidoso real estate market improving - 04/25/10 05:08 PM
We are beginning to see some positive signs in our local real estate market. The sharp declines that occurred in 2008 and 2009, are beginning to trend upwards. Activity is up as buyers continue to look for bargains, and take advantage of the high inventory of available homes for sale. Home buyer tax credits may have had some impact, but not as much as they have in areas that have more first time, and primary home buyers. The following press release was recently issued by the Ruidoso/Lincoln County Association of REALTORS. ———————————————————————————————————————- 1ST QUARTER 2010 HOME SALES INCREASE IN CITY AND (0 comments)

ruidoso real estate: Real Estate Market bottom? Ruidoso vs. National Trends in Housing - 04/02/09 10:36 AM
As I have mentioned before, there are a lot of potential home buyers on the sideline, looking for deals steals, and trying to gauge a market bottom. Nothing new with this strategy ( buying as low as possible ) especially in light of today’s uncertainty in the market. The “experts” continue to weigh in, and I thought I would pass on a few points taken from today’s online article When home Prices Hit Bottom, over at CNNMoney.com . 1. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to wait due to high inventory & lower prices 2. Nationwide, (0 comments)
ruidoso real estate: Log Home in Southern New Mexico - featured in Log Home Living Magazine - 02/05/09 08:56 PM
In a mountainous resort area like Ruidoso, you would think that log homes would be very common, but this is not the case. There are many log sided and cedar sided homes, but true log homes are few and far between. This was brought to my attention a few weeks ago, when I had some customers looking for a log home within close proximity to Ruidoso, and only a few listings matched their criteria. Out of 522 single family homes listed in Ruidoso, Alto, Ruidoso Downs and Capitan, only 18 listings were log. This represents just 3% of the listed properties. (1 comments)

ruidoso real estate: Champion's Run Condos - Ruidoso Downs, NM - 05/22/08 03:15 PM
Champion’s Run is one of the largest condominium complexes in the Ruidoso area with 104 units. Officially, this complex is located in Ruidoso Downs, and is right next to the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack. For this reason, this complex is very popular with the “horse people”. Some of the units actually overlook the barns and work areas of the racetrack, others have great views of the mountains, east & north. Most of the units were completed in 1984, and were originally named “Triple Crown Condominiums”. The complex got off to a rocky start, as the oil bust and savings & loan debacle (0 comments)
ruidoso real estate: Ruidoso Get-away ... Cabin or Condo ?? - 05/06/08 10:34 PM
As summer approaches, I’ve received an increasing number of calls from people planning to visit Ruidoso over the next few weeks with thoughts of purchasing a “summer get-away”. In most, but not all cases, these folks are coming from somewhere in Texas and their primary goal is to purchase a second home that they can use in the summer to escape the heat. Most are not wanting to spend over $150,000, and many have a secondary goal of renting their property out on a nightly basis, to help recoup some of the expense. Most people are picturing a rustic but updated (0 comments)
ruidoso real estate: No Boom No Gloom - Ruidoso Real Estate Trends - 05/05/08 05:36 PM
Lately, there has been a lot of interest in the Ruidoso real estate market, from those who have been considering a home purchase for some time. I’m often asked questions like “Is this a buyers market” and “Are we seeing a bottom” ? I can’t forecast the future of real estate in Ruidoso especially with the uncertainty of the national markets for both housing and stocks. The historical sales trend and current seasonal slowdown for Ruidoso, along with the market forecasts from the National Association of Realtors, reflect a lull from the overheated markets of 2005 and 2006.
