Rio Grande Estates - Socorro in New Mexico

Rio Grande Estates In Socorro County

 

Laid Back Off Grid Living - - Build, RV, Or Camp

 

Rio Grande Estates is a very large under-developed community.  It is about 40 miles south of Albuquerque.  Located near the community of Las Nutrias, the city of Belen is about 15 miles to the north and the county seat of Socorro is abut 29 miles south.

All of these properties have platted legal road access.  Even in the more remote areas where the graded roads have faded, you can easily drive anywhere in a pickup or SUV.  A regular car will be a case by case basis, you will have to try it and see.  A glance at Google Earth or Google Maps will show you that there aren't very many people in this area.  If you're looking for an easily accessible yet secluded spot, these should definitely get your attention.  To the east are the Manzano Mountains, providing you with fantastic views.

You can RV or camp on your property as long as you like without restriction.  "Socorro County does not have a zoning or permitting ordinance. At this time there are no County regulations or restrictions on the use of real property regarding the location and use of buildings/structures or use of land for trade, industry, residence, or control of population density."  There are no subdivision or county restrictions, and there is no HOA.  Property taxes are about $20 per property.

All of these properties are big enough to meet New Mexico's acreage requirement for off grid residences.  You can choose to leave the property as is and use it as a prime RVing and camping spot, or just hold it for investment.  If you do want to build a residence, you can call the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department Construction Industries Division at 505-476-4700 for New Mexico building requirements.  For septic system information you can call the New Mexico Environment Department at 505-841-5306.

For electricity you will probably choose solar.  Water will be by haulage and storage, or by well if you explore that option and decide to go that way.  Cell phone reception was great with our Verizon phones.

From Belen you can catch the commuter train to Albuquerque.  Albuquerque is famous for restaurants, museums, shops, art, annual Balloon Fiesta, and much more.  Close to home you can enjoy the attractions of the cities of Los Lunas and Belen, and you can drive down to Socorro to check out the National Radio Astronomy Observatory - - yes, the Very Large Array you have seen in so many movies and TV shows - - and the excellent Mineral Museum.  There are numerous locations of cultural and archeological interest in the region.
