Deming sits at 4,331 feet above sea level, has a population of about 14,000 people and is the geographic center and the seat of Luna County, New Mexico. It lies among irrigated fields and desert grasslands, with the Florida Mountains in the background. In the early days, Deming was called "the city of windmills," reflecting the community’s use of wind energy to pump water from large aquifers created by the nearby mountain streams. The arrival of the railroad in 1881 was a defining event for the community and a Harvey House was built to serve train passengers, and it became a social center for Deming. Part of the original building is still standing next to the Amtrak train depot.

These are undeveloped lots you can buy for investment, building, or to have a place to RV or camp while you visit the area. There are utilities in the area, but not to every unit nor to each property yet. For now Water would be by Well or Hauling. Sewer would be by Septic - when you build. Cell phones worked almost everywhere when we were there. These lots are Zoned Residential for Single Family Residences. If you have water and septic system hooked up you can stay in an RV up to 240 days each year. If no utilities you can stay up to 30 days each year. There are No association fees or dues, no time restrictions on when to build and there are no unreasonable restrictions on what to build. Taxes are around $20 per year per lot and are current. There are No liens, taxes, and encumbrances due on the property. 

NOTE:  New Mexico does generally require at least 3/4 of an acre (which is at least 2 lots) to issue a building permit for a permanent home when the lot is not serviced by a city water and a city sewer system.  When the city utilities are installed, every single lot would then be buildable, and they will each become much more valuable.  You can build now if you acquire 2 or more adjacent lots.  Or you can wait and build a house on each individual lot once the utilities are run.  Or you can sell them to maximize profits at that time.
