Rancho Rio Grande East in New Mexico

Rancho Rio Grande East

 

 Beautiful Albuquerque Area In The Rio Grande River Valley

 

Huge Parcels 5 Acres And Bigger


These are large 5 acre and 10 acre parcels located southeast of Albuquerque, New Mexico in Valencia County

The Rancho Rio Grande subdivision is an under-developed community.  It is just east of the town of Belen which is rapidly becoming a bedroom community to the city of Albuquerque.  The main population of the area is along the I-25 corridor and the Rio Grande River.  The Rio Communities lie to the east of this main corridor.  There are scattered subdivisions throughout this area and there are other areas of no development.  There are many nice homes in the already developed areas.  These parcels are between the Rio Grande River and the Manzano Mountains.  You will be a few miles from the Rio Communities Development Area where there are shopping centers, businesses, churches, schools, a senior center, and many homes.  You will be only a few miles from the Tierra Del Sol Country Club And Golf Course!  

These properties are level to rolling with native grasses.  There are stunning views in every direction.  To the east the Manzano Mountains tower over 10,000 feet offering breathtaking views of the Rockies.  There are several National Forest and wilderness areas within a short drive including the Cibola National Forest. They offer an incredible variety of outdoor activities such as mountain bike riding, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, canoeing, snow skiing, horseback riding, ATV riding, sightseeing, and just relaxing. 

This area is now poised to explode! A New Interchange off of I-25 is in the works. This $96 million project will connect I-25 to State Highway 314, across the Rio Grande River and then on to State Highway 47 where these Rio Communities are located. The bypass will make the Rio Communities more accessible and create more traffic through the area. The Rio Communities are currently the last large vacant tract of land in the area and with easier access, growth will be coming this way!

Facebook's new 980,000 square foot data center complex in Los Lunas will add a lot of good jobs to the area when it opens in 2018, and it is expected to attract other high tech companies to the area as well.

At the very next exit to the north on I-25, a large 1,500 home subdivision is nearing completion.  Another developer has purchased a 6,000 acre tract near the same exit and has been developing it.  Valencia County's population has grown an incredible 46% in the last 10 years alone and now is over 69,000.  The city of Belen already has a population of over 7,100 and the Rio Communities have another 5,800.  This area is rapidly growing in value and popularity as well.

A whopping 76% of the residents of Valencia County voted to pass a referendum to build a new hospital in the county.  They have announced that this hospital will be built inside the Rio Communities next to Belen. This will be another huge boost to this area.

In the immediate Belen area there is a Walmart Super Center, IGA Grocery, Staples, senior center, museum, The University Of New Mexico - Valencia Campus, as well as the normal array of schools, churches, health care, etc.  With convenient access to Interstate 25, all other amenities are just a short drive away in Albuquerque.  The very next exit north on Interstate 25 has another Super Walmart as well as Walmart's central distribution center for the entire state.  On up I-25 is Albuquerque, which is the largest city in New Mexico and is home to the annual International Balloon Fiesta.  And don't forget the large Resort and Casino in Isleta that is just a 25 minute ride away. 

In early 2007 the Regional Transportation District opened the new passenger rail system.  This links the Belen/Los Lunas area directly with Albuquerque.  Residents are now able to live in the Belen area and work in Albuquerque, commuting on this light rail system.  This rail system network has recently been extended the entire way to the state capital of Santa Fe.

Elevation of 5,000 feet makes for near perfect weather year round.  The summer highs are in the 80's & 90's with the winter highs in the 50's.  There are about 350 sunny days per year making this area "the sunniest in the country".  Come see why New Mexico is known as "The Land Of Enchantment"!

These parcels are huge at 5 acres and 10 acres apiece.  Livestock is permitted, so if you want to keep horses you could do that.  Even the smallest of these properties is big enough that you would have lots of space to enjoy.  The scenery, especially the Manzano Mountains views, is beautiful.  The roads are all dedicated roads which means none of the property area is given up to be part of the road easement.

Although these are great properties for privacy and currently you would be living off grid, the Manzano Expressway is not far away.  Every parcel has legal access on platted road frontage and these roads were all graded in years ago. With little or no traffic since then, most of these roads will need a little clearing up. Every property was surveyed and pinned when the subdivision was laid out and approved, although these markers may not all be visible today.

These are all great building sites with excellent views.  This makes for a great investment for that dream house.  There are no time restrictions on when to build, there are no requirements that you must build, and there are no association fees.  There are utilities in the general area, but not yet to these properties.  In the meantime you can use a generator or go solar.  Cell phones are normal.  If you decide to drill a well for water, wells in the area are typically 200 to 350 feet. Sewage would be by septic - when you build.  Mobile homes are allowed.  You can RV on your property for up to 45 days per year.  Taxes are about $9 per year for a 5 acre parcel.  The taxes are current, as is the case with all of our properties as well as free and clear titles.
