Get to Know Brian Stenum

Taos New Mexico is located in the north central section of New Mexico at an altitude of approximately 6950-ft, nestled between the Taos Mountains on one side and open mesas on the other.  It is known for its southwestern artsy heritage and for its world class ski area - Taos Ski Valley located just 15-miles or so to the northeast.  Taos is at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, with an estimated in-town population of about 5,000, and an estimated county wide population of about 35,000 to 40,000.  Taos enjoys a moderate climate, with average summer highs in the mid-80's and average winter lows around 10-degrees.  The warmest month is typically July - the coldest is typically January.  Annual precipitation is about 12-inches, with the wettest month typically being August.

Demographics are defined as statistical characteristics of human populations (typically as to age, race, and income) generally used to identify potential markets.  Along with the Taos demographics information you can find on this site, you can find information about nearby surrounding communities, including Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, Red River, Questa, and the Taos Ski Valley.  You can find interactive maps, giving you road and street details, and satellite and satellite hybrid images of the area, including bird's eye view images of the area where you can actually look at streets, neighborhoods, buildings, and homes from a bird's eye level aerial view.  You will find information on Taos area attractions, restaurants, lodging, and activities.


The Taos real estate market is much different than the real estate market in a large metropolitan area.  There are issues with wells, with septic systems, with lot splits, with easements, and more.  Whereas in a large metropolitan area, you typically only have to deal with a house with a well defined street address sitting on a well defined lot that is hooked up to city water and to city sewer.  In Taos, there are land grant issues and water right issues, and state regulations governing wells and septic systems.  There are zoning issues, and construction moratoriums, and other town and county issues that a Buyer will need to be aware of in their evaluation of a potential property.
