I was surfing for homes in the Durango area and was wondering why there are so many homes for sale on Horse Thief Lane. I can't find any crime reports or incidents nor can I find anything about changes to the area. Are they looking to build in that area that is causing so many people to want to move or is there an increase in crime?

Probably flippers or foreclosures since the area looks quite new.

I would tend to agree with MFBE, though I'm only speculating. A beautiful golf course surrounds/runs through the neighborhood so perhaps speculators or second home owners bought at the top of the market and are now left holding the bag. I've only been here a couple of months but from what I can tell crime is virtually non-existent in that area: it's really nice.

There's quite a stigma amongst some people with living amongst horse thieves. Saw the same thing happen elsewhere on a Cattle Rustler Road.

That's where many of the Californians live.

Probably a lot of speculators bought there during the boom when Durango RE prices more than doubled. It's a very nice, upscale neighborhood, surrounded by a prestigious golf course. I'd give it a 9/10. (It's also floodplain, but don't try telling anyone who lives there that. )

Of course SOME people get sick of golf balls breaking their patio windows after awhile....
