Eloise Gift http://www.eloisegift.com Your Gift for real estateCan you recognize a green house when you see one? I barely made it to the custom homes tour last weekend. In fact, I was only able to visit two that were complete and not still under construction. One of those two was green, the other not. The green home was in the process of being certified to the "Gold" (highest) level of Build Green New Mexico. Nothing in its appearance indicated that it made efficient use of building resources, was energy and water efficient, had high indoor air quality rating, and was designed to have minimum impact on global warming.  It was a small two-bedroom house on an infill lot. It shared a driveway with other homes, was sited to optimize the use of solar power and had limited turf area to minimi...

It's always a great challenge to find a good "kids' horse"  that will be safe for small children or beginner riders, without being a complete dead-head who won't leave the barn!It's even more of a challenge due to the fact that so many folks out there have such a ...unique idea of what constitutes a good beginner's horse! I vividly remember the time, over fifteen years ago, when we had first bought our little acreage in Bosque Farms, New Mexico, and were looking for a good, solid, "bomb-proof" horse to teach our four small daughters, ages 3-8, how to ride. I looked all over the Albuquerque area. I called on ad after ad, to no avail. Finally, I decided to run my own ad:"Wanted: Bomb-proof Kids' Horse for small children."And the phone started ringing! And ringing! And ringing:"Hello, Ma'...

Eloise Gift http://eloise/ Gift.com Yur Gift for real estate On Monday (May 21, 2007) the local Albuquerque Journal newspaper gave extensive coverage to SunCal of California and their plans to develop a part of their newly acquired extensive holdings west of the city of Albuquerque. They are commited to new urbanism that support retail and residential properties constructed for sustainability. Today's editorial, (May 23, 2007) in the same paper, reflects the conclusions of my earlier post on SunCal, SunCal's Westside.

Eloise Gift http://eloisegift.com/ Your Gift for real estate.  In a post on green buildings a few weeks ago, http://activerain.com/blogsview/55744/Taking-up-the-Green, I commented on a building still under construction not far from another near Journal Center, identified as a green. Even though still under construction, it was very elegant and I hoped that it, too, would be a green. I guessed it might be residential. Since then, it was announced that the identified green building won the highest level of certification in Leadership Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Albuquerque Office Building wins LEED Gold.What of the mystery building, the elegant one I admired? It has been completed right down to the landscaping. I have not h...

Currently over 6,000 residential properties are on sale.The number of new listings is surpassing the number of sales. April, 2006 had 1,869 new listings. April 2007 saw the amount increased to 2,491. At the same time, closed sales decreased by 5%. In March 2007 964 homes sold compared to 910 in April 2007. Another indicator of a slowing market is the average number of days that a property stays on the market before it is sold. Days on market increased from 71 days in April 2006 to 78 days in April 2007. Even so, the news is not all bad. The number of days on the market did decrease from March 2007 to April 2007...

  UNM Duck Pond This wonderful oasis is located on the UNM campus near the Zimmerman Library. The duck pond was completed in 1976 and has become a great recreational area for all.  What a great place to just sit and relax! The diversity of people and activities makes for a fascinating way to pass your time.   My eldest daughter had not been in awhile and I was encouraging her to come with us. "But what is there to do?" she asked. I told her about our last visit.   Continued reading...   View current list of UNM South homes for sale.   Ashley Drake Gephart, Associate Broker, REALTOR®9201 Montgomery Blvd., NE Suite 101 Albuquerque · NM 87111Cell: 505.261.0389 * Office: 505.271.8200 * Fax: 505.271.8217Albuquerque Real Estate Email Ashley

Eloise Gift http://EloiseGift.com Your Gift for real estateLast Thursday, the citizens came out to meet City Hall. Albuquerque City Council took their show on the road, so to speak, from City Hall to a Community Center on the Westside of town for a public discussion of the budget.  Taking into consideration the efforts of the council to go out to meet the people in the community and the importance of spending tax dollars wisely, I was expecting standing-room only crowd.  Relatively few people were in attendance.Nevertheless, I was impressed with the participation of those who attended and considered the meeting successful for three reasons.  1. Many young people of high school and college age attended and were articulate in addressing the council on matters of importance to them - for y...
