Currently living in San Jose, CA, looking to move back to NM in a few years. My wife works in medical records and I'm trying to start new career in sales and marketing. We lived in Farmington for about 5 years, but moved to CA to go back to college. Looking at either Farmington area (Bloomfield, Aztec, Durango) or Albuquerque. We are looking somewhere we can possibly rent house or similar for a reasonable price and in a descent neighborhood (we have a child now), the only thing we can afford out here is large complex apartments which leave a lot to be desired. Thanks for any and all help.

You might consider Alamogordo or Las Cruces, NM. I love southern New Mexico. Alamo has the desert SW's first zoo-opened in 1898. We had been here for 6 months before we finally saw it. The monkeys were adorable. One has a pompador hairdo. When they were done staring at us the baby monkey got on the Momma monkey's back and they lept away. The cougar was absolutely regal looking. We have a 200-lb. Gallapego turtle and an owl that comes out and stares at you right by the fence. Never seen anything like it!

I was born and raised in Aztec, and we moved back here in late 2009. One of the things my family loves about being in the four corners area is the regional outdoor activities we can enjoy year round. We have two small kids and there are endless things for us to do. Renting in Farmington can be pretty expensive. You'll rent a small 3bed 2bath for about $1,000 a month or slightly more, depending on where it is. Hope this helps.

Well for me if the town has a "Target" that's a plus. You've been here before...but I'd get an update on the water issues. I just finished VB Price's wonderful expose ("The Orphaned Land") on water and related pollution largely from the Labs and mining (Farmington and the Navajo Res.) and it looks like New Mexico's discovery by MANY has stressed out the water needs. Crime and law enforcement also appeared to be stressed out and/or corrupted also (I lived in Albuquerque when that camper was shot in the back 2-3 yrs ago by the APD). I left soon after that. Your post is old so you may already have moved...but any update on what I've written would be interesting?
