Albuquerque, NM is the greenest city in the U.S., and that's not just my opinion!Last Saturday, Albuquerque won the Mayor's Climate Protection Award at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Los Angeles, beating out 90 other large cities, including Seattle, Portland, and many others.Albuquerque's bid for this honor centered round the "Albuquerque Green" program that was created in late 2006 to consolidate numerous city environmental projects. Albuquerque has been working hard to reduce greenhouse gases, thought to contribute to global warming. Statistics indicated that the city has succeeded in reducing greenhouse gas emmissions by 67% since the year 2000.  Albuquerque is considered to be on track for another ambitions goal: that of having all new buildings by carbon neutral and powered by re...

What the heck is "hippotherapy" anyway? Surely hippos neither need nor provide therapy?!Hippotherapy is just a fancy name for "horse therapy," or therapeutic riding programs such as that provided by Cloud Dancers of the Southwest, in Albuquerque, New Mexico for those with disabilities.  Cloud Dancers is a non-profit organization that has provided therapeutic riding programs for deaf, developmentally delayed, and autistic participants, as well as those with various other disabilities for many years. Therapeutic riding imporves participants' coordination, upper-arm strength, and, especially, confidence, and they learn not only to ride, but also to care for the horses.Cloud Dancers is an Affiliate Center Member of the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) which empl...

A glance at the Albuquerque, NM MLS activity for the past 24 hours provides a great snapshot market report for greater Albuquerque area real estate. In the past 24 hours, the Albuquerque area MLS has seen the following activity:As you can see,  over twice as many new listings came ON the market as went OFF the market as "pending" sales going under contract, or as sales actually closing. If one adds the "back on the market" listings, which came back on the market because their sales failed to close, for whatever reason, the figures are even more dramatic. in fact, there are nearly 25% as many properties coming back on the market because they failed to close as their are properties actually closing. There are over 50% more listings getting price reductions than listings going under contra...

The new Mesa Del Sol development in Albuquerque, NM claims a true commitment to green building standards and sustainability. Water conservation and energy efficiency are touted as integral to this development, which focuses on building a "mixed-use" community where homes, retail shops, commercial development and open space are blended, to make it easy and convenient for residents to live, work, shop, and enjoy recreation right in the immediate area. Mesa Del Sol developers talk about this as a sustainable community, which will bring people out of their homes and cars, encouraging them to be connected to each other and the environment, and thus be more active and healthy as well.Part of the Mesa Del Sol strategy is to insure that all the homes in this new area of Albuquerque will be bui...

I've been doing a lot of showing in the past couple of weeks, and even some offer-writing. I'm getting a bit frustrated though, at the really strange market situation that's developed, at least in the rural areas surrounding Albuquerque. With very few exceptions, all the active listings were priced well above the very highest sold comps, sometimes as much as 20% above the highest comparable property that has actually closed. (Let me here congratulate that minority of serious sellers whose homes are well-priced: it was such a pleasure showing your properties!)Last year, and the year before that, this "overpricing" strategy worked for sellers! Property values were increasing so rapidly that you could actually get 20% more than your neighbor got for his identical property six months earlie...

Eloise Gift http://www. Eloise Gift.com Your Gift for real estateToday, June 8, 2007, the Southwest Multiple Listing Service, the local MLS system of the greater Albuquerque Area of New Mexico, http://www.abqrealtors.com/industry/, increased its offerings with 219 newly listed residential properties and 22 previously taken off the market that were put back, thus making the total number of residential properties listed today 241.Today, also, 86 properties were put in pending (taken off the market because someone contracted to buy them). An additional 50 properties are listed as sold. (These ended their escrow period successfully, definitely have new owners, and are off the market.)If we assume that all the pendings will close, we may say that a total of 130 properties went off the market...

Eloise Gift http://www.eloiseGift.com Your Gift for real estateIronstone Bank's grand opening at 4701 Lang NE, Journal Center, was an elegant affair in an elegant building that allowed for the easy flow of guests back and forth from the east to the west wing of the building. The hosts were very gracious in meeting and intermingling with their guests and I had the opportunity of talking with several members of the Ironstone Bank community who were easily identifiable by the pins they wore. I also chatted with several guests who seemed as excited as I was to be in the building. It turns out, I was not the only one who watched the building go up with great curiosity. I anticipated it to be an elegant  private residence. Several people told me they anticipated a small hotel.Here, in ABQ, bu...
