2020-21 had some new property buying trends, and they’re still going strong. It seems the way we live and work has changed for the unforeseeable future.

As a result, there has been unprecedented sales growth near resort and recreation areas over the past year. Any ranch, hunting, or recreation property near a mountain area, recreation or resort town brings the property into another investment bracket level, as it offers attributes that are in increasingly high demand.

The trending property attributes include:

Easy access to skiing and other outdoor recreation, plus shopping, and dining venues. In the Southwest and So CO regions we represent, there is an added bonus of the ability to be outside, enjoying parks, events, and patios, much of the year. 

Another compelling consideration of the region is that it’s not the typical destination getaway that gets over-crowded at peak times of the year. The world-class level amenities and offerings are often available without crowds and congestion.

Properties we represent are currently available in the following recreational regions:

Taos, Angel Fire, and Santa Fe, NM; Plus, properties within reach of the mountain resort towns, Cloudcroft and Ruidoso, NM, and close to progressive Roswell, NM.

So, sit back with your new dream property list, and imagine the property possibilities, plus the lifestyle perks of the region, as we recount our most sought-after properties on the market today.

Whether it’s hitting the slopes, recreation trails, or out riding the range by day… and sitting by a chalet fireplace, a ranch fire pit, or out on a patio with a great meal and music at night...

You could be living the dream in no time!
