Wanting to relocate or find a new home? Looking for a great place to live? Narrowed your search down to Southern New Mexico, but now have no idea where to begin?  Searching for homes in Southern New Mexico can be daunting, but don’t give up hope yet.

First of all, what draws your attention to Southern New Mexico? Is it the beautiful scenery? Is it the weather? What recreations are important to you or your family? Wanting big city life or small city charm?  These are all questions you might want to ask yourself before determining where you would like to settle down and look for homes in Southern New Mexico.

The second largest city in the state has a mild desert climate and majestic views of mountains and the Rio Grande Valley.  The sun shines an average of 350 days a year making the area a great location for events, attractions, and outdoor festivities.  It is a great place to raise a family or retire.

As with searching for homes in any area, finding homes in Southern New Mexico or specifically Las Cruces means you will want to define your price range and amenities to ensure you only view the homes that you are interested in seeing. Of course you can find homes in any price range, but it is possible to find homes running from the $160s to the mid $300s.

Located 33 miles north of the Mexico border, Deming is a small town rich with history.  A little oasis surrounded by the mountains of the Black Range provides a beautiful backdrop.  It is a full service community with low cost of living and affordable taxes.  Deming provides some great home offerings in the $180’s, but it is possible to find cheaper homes here as well as the more expensive.

Basically a suburb of Las Cruces in Dona Ana County, Vado can provide a smaller cost of living close to the bigger city.  Home prices vary greatly, but there are some great options in either the $160’s or the mid $300’s.
