While there was plenty of buying activity around the state, brokers noticed more activity in certain areas. Albuquerque saw a lot of activity on the Westside and in the Northeast Heights, as well as in nearby Rio Rancho. Around the state, brokers noticed activity in Los Lunas, most likely because of Facebook, as well as in Northeast Las Cruces.
Santa Fe was not the only place that saw large home sales. Firms sold their most expensive homes in Corrales and the Albuquerque area as well.
The Albuquerque metro area saw improvement in homes sold and in home pricing compared to 2016. Single-family detached home sales rose 6.9 percent to 11,477 units.
“The Albuquerque metro area’s housing market was very active in 2017,” wrote Danny Vigil, 2018 president of the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS, in a statement. “Since more homes sold at a higher price point, our local housing market grew to $292 billion in 2017. That’s up by more than 12 percent from 2016.”February 4, 2018
