I would certainly want to be well versed in any HOA or ordinances that would affect me before moving into a 'development'.

This subdivision advertises in New Mexico Magazine, which is sent to fans everywhere. I think it used to be five acres for the listed amount, then moved to 20 acres, which said to me that the subdivision is struggling. That would matter a lot if the house(s) aren't on municipal services of some kind, or road ownership, or other things that the aggregated houses would have to be paying. To me, it's like being part of a condo association, and if other owners aren't paying their fees (or there aren't other owners) then you just agreed to buy needed services with strangers or who knows?

I own a condo...

If a user is not paying their fees, a lien is place against the condo. At the 9th to 12th month, foreclosure begins.

For a condo which my mom actually lived in for 20 years, it was a good purchase.

Buying a piece of dirt with no roads, water or electrical utilities are different issues... (I got that also...)

I noticed that as well. I'm not sure it for was the same amount, but it may have been. The photo they use makes it look inviting, but one must remember that it's high desert. I like that too, but the photo is of cool mountains off in the distance.

Default Carrizozo area

I have been to this area several times, the problem I have is that they have so many restrictions on these "ranchettes" that your bills and costs would never stop and others would be forever involved with your property, from limiting and mandating what you can do, to charging you continuing community and HOA fees with the threat of forclosure if you don't pay. The town of Carrizozo is just what you might expect from a small town on the highway in NM. It is a nice little place, couple of great restaurants and c-stores, and other small shops. There are several interesting properties that you can buy and do with what you want, be creative and artistic, without everyone "standing around your "property" waiting to tell you what you can do. These ranchette subdivisions try using the combination of restrictions and the "fear of ancient house trailers " to get big bucks for land that they probably bought for next to nothing.

Default Change

I have lived in Carrizozo my entire life (minus 4 years in Las Cruces). I love living in Carrizozo and I bought a one acre parcel in Valle Del Sol and have my house there. I am part of a non profit organization called CWI (Carrizozo Works Inc.) which is to better the town of Carrizozo in all aspects. Economic developent is MY personal ambition to Carrizozo. I would like to see more business come in and prosper. Every town has its pros and cons. I believe Carrizozo is on the verge of postive change and soon it will be the place to go and visit and possibly move to. Its not as bad as all the other posts I've seen on this forum. VDS has those lights but they DO NOT ruin the nights sky for any kind of star gazing or related astronomy. As I continue to work as a CWI member we want and will succeed on positive focus on the needs of the town. The people are excellent minus a few nay sayers. (But we all know what they can all do). Building community is also another project we have. I.E. getting all its residents on the same page. The wheels are have started turning and we are definitely making an impact. With Adopt a Block to Project 1500. It will take some time but we are in the beginning stages. If all us residents take the time to help out and be positive on what Carrizozo can be then there is no limit. If any of you reading this post have bought land in Valle Del Sol or Carrizozo postive change is coming and CWI would like to extend your welcome by getting invloved. Visit our website @ Welcome to Carrizozo Works and find us on Facebook and like our page. search Carrizozo Works Inc.

I live there my whole life. The views are very nice and the lots all have city water but no sewer. I had to get a septic and propane tank. Not a big deal I love living out there.
