Default yet more moving questions

Hi,

We are thinking of making the move from NJ to ALB in one year. I'm a teacher and my wife is a nurse. We have one preschool aged son and I have been reading that the NE and NW sides are usually good to live in and the SE side is not. I never hear mention of the SW side of town? We are actually not looking for a big home. A modest 2-3 bedroom will do. As a teacher. my main concern is a decent school for my kid and both of us having jobs lined up before we move. I see that there are many museums and what looks like a great zoo. My son loves animals, dinos and spaceships, so I'm sure he will enjoy visiting them.

Any info or advice would be really appreciated,

thanks

There are always exceptions, but I'd live in the SE before I'd live in the SW. Most SW-side housing is either really old (falling down) or really new (bedroom communities with almost zero setback, zero trees, and zero walkability).

Most people moving up in houses tend to leave, rather than go to, the SW side.

The Southeast area subdivisions include the well established Ridgecrest and Nob Hill sections, The Four Hills community has private golf, tennis, and swimming facilities. With a clubhouse for meetings this area has two parks for recreation.

There are several areas in the SE are very desirable. Some of the most desirable in the city. Pancho pointed out a few.

At least go to Hot Tamales or Joes Pasta House in Rio Rancho. Drive though Corrales going or returning, of course observing the speed limit...
