The luxury market in Santa Fe has never been better for the buyer who’s looking at maximizing his dollar investment. As other markets in Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and California have reached bidding wars, Santa Fe is attracting those who have always wanted the “original” pueblo home. It’s true while the rest of the country is seeing listing shrinking in luxury homes; Santa Fe is still in the land of manana. But with talk of interest rates going up, some the best deals are already gone. Showing appointments are up while visitors and potential buyers are in town for summer events such as Spanish and Indian market. If you’re thinking about re-discovering a place to enjoy the high desert, mountains and blue skies, Santa Fe just might have the right combination for you. Click here to...

A lot measuring 90 feet wide by 120 feet deep sold for $80,000. A. What was the price per front foot ? B. What was the price per square foot ? Answers posted below the wildlife photos. Please take your time. A. $888.89 B. $7.41 Let's first find the front foot price by dividing 90 feet (the front width) into 80,000 and we find that the the cost is $888.8888 or rounded $888.89. Now, to find the price per square foot first multiply 90 times 120 to arrive at a total of 10800 square feet. Divide 10800 into 80000 and we get 7.4074 or rounded $7.41 per square foot.

#2952 An appraiser was contacted an asked to appraise a home. There have been quite a few sales in the area due to the recent economic climate and the lowering of prices.
