haha- yes I meant Tract housing (the last time I posted I said it again as a joke to myself) I have the flu and and an very out of it-I think its funny I wrote that also- I enjoy the joking-

I felt Rio Rancho was represented a different kind of life then I think of when I am in New Mexico-If you know Portland area there is a town Called Beaverton and its strip malls, the houses are all very similiar and its clean and nice just not my ideal... I understand many liking it there, and I am happy they found what they needed.

So Edgewood is more an area for people with horses and livestock in mind... I have seen some beautiful houses out there fully furnished with everything I want and great price tags- BUT my husband will be working in the city so I think that may be to far...

I will checkout the areas you have suggested- Thank you again for your humor and info-

It's a person whose main interest in posting is to inflame and create chaos and controversy on the board and fighting among its members.

Well, life is what you make of it.

I was born and raised here, but have been plenty of places. I have to say that I'm always glad to come home.

Food is great (true, not five star like San Fran or New York), but there's enough of a good variety so you don't get bored. Entertainment--again, it's not world class, but there's always something going on somewhere here if you take the time to look.

Crime--okay, there is crime here, but I never see it. I suppose if I hung out with criminals I might see more of it. To the poster whose husband got mugged--random crime can happen anywhere at any time. There are parts of ABQ, like any city, where you're more likely to be victimized, but you just stay away from those areas and take care of yourself.

I guess the one negative here really is drunk drivers. For whatever reason, some people just don't get it.

If schools are important to you, the NE Heights might be your choice. It isn't hip with cool shops like Nob Hill, but there are some pretty houses and neighborhoods with many trees. The schools are among the best in Albuquerque. You will find some tract homes in your price range, but if you're going for a smaller home with only three bedrooms, you can definitely find a non-tract home for under 250k in some parts of NE Heights.

I tried to post a photo of my neighborhood, but couldn't figure out how to download it. Is it possible and if so, how do I do it?

I really wouldn't buy a house straight away, you should rent for at least 6 months, get a feel for the town, get to know the different areas, neighbourhoods and school districts.

Home prices aren't about to start going up anytime soon so there is really no rush to buy at this moment in time.

It's just that Rio Rancho has diverse neighborhoods also. Albuquerque is littered with tack homes also. Rio Rancho has a large footprint and many different aspects to it. There are certainly tract homes (just like Albuquerque) but there are many areas that have beautiful custom homes also.

Default Avoid strangers in albuquerque

Keep a low profile in any big city thats my advice there is so many characters out there just like if you approach a stray dog,you dont just reach out to it and wait to get bit.
