Buying Short Sales -

If a home is being sold for below what the current seller owes on the property—and the seller does not have other funds to make up the difference at closing—the sale is considered a short sale. Many more home owners are finding themselves in this situation due to a number of factors, including job losses, aggressive borrowing against their home in the days of easy credit, and declining home values in a slower real estate market.

A short sale is different from a foreclosure, which is when the seller's lender has taken title of the home and is selling it directly. Homeowners often try to accomplish a short sale in order to avoid foreclosure. But a short sale holds many potential pitfalls for buyers. Know the risks before you pursue a…

Foreclosure in New Mexico

To fully understand the Short Sale Process it is important to know the potential process of foreclosure.  These answer's below will help you to understand the difficulties and obstacles in the short sale process.

As a Realtor® with years of helping families relocate I must work even closer with these families…

New Mexico has created the Renewable Energy Transmission Authority.  This Authority can plan, finance, build and operate new electric transmission lines and power storage facilities.

I find this a great step forward for the State of New Mexico.  With our wide open spaces our capability for wind and solar seems endless.  What we lack is the electricity transmission grid to transport the renewable energy to the cities that need it.  With this new Authority that problem may soon be solved.

To me I thought that the Western States, with so many days of sunshine and endless desert, were ripe for Solar and Wind Technology.  I feel that society is fully ready and capable to embrace this type of energy as we are more concious as ever about our footprint on the…
