Albuquerque proves resilient -

(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 04, 2009 ) Mexico - Although the city of Albuquerque in New Mexico has not managed to avoid the housing crisis entirely, it has remained impressively stable compared with the rest of the nation…

The entire state of New Mexico has fared well in the midst of the real estate fiasco sweeping the globe, maintaining low foreclosure levels and reasonable appreciation rates while many other states drown in a sea of foreclosed properties.

Property investors on the lookout for a region in which the housing market has a positive outlook may want to consider spending a little time researching researching Albuquerque.

As of July 2007, there were 518,271 people who called the city of Albuquerque home. This number experienced a 13 per cent increase from the year 2000.

The city covers a land area of 180.6 square miles and has a population density of 2,869 people per square mile.

The median household income was estimated at £31,806 in 2007, with 15.8 per cent of residents living below the poverty line. As far as demographics are concerned, Albuquerque’s population is 49.9 per cent White, 39.9 per cent Hispanic, 4.9 per cent American Indian and 3.1 per cent Black, according to

The median price of Albuquerque homes on is £169,401 and median gross rent was £484 in 2007.

The state of New Mexico has a very low number of foreclosure filings when compared to the rest of the United States; it ranked 42nd on RealtyTrac’s October 2008 foreclosure market data report.

New Mexico foreclosures decreased by 45 per cent since October 2007. According to the report, in New Mexico approximately one out of every 3,220 homes is in foreclosure. Comparatively, the national average is one out of every 452 homes.

One of the possible reasons for the state’s low foreclosure rate could be that New Mexico’s housing markets never experienced the excessive boom that other regions saw, according to ‘The Albuquerque Tribune.’

A recent report released by, a site that forecasts conditions for real estate markets across the United States, placed Albuquerque among the top ten most promising housing markets in the nation.

Cities in neighbouring states Colorado (Grand Junction) and Texas (Austin) also made the cut. Albuquerque came in tenth on the list.

At first glance, the city’s appreciation rate of 0.95 per cent in the second quarter of 2008 does not sound particularly exciting. But Albuquerque is faring better than other cities of similar size in the area.

Approximately 450 miles to the southwest, Tucson experienced a -5.86 per cent appreciation rate in the second quarter. 450 miles to the north, Denver’s appreciation rate was 0.38 per cent for the same period, according to data from the Office of Federal Housing Oversight.

When compared with these other cities, Albuquerque’s real estate market seems to be weathering the storm well.

“October saw 1,411 new detached residential listings come on the market. This number is down six per cent from last month, following the similar trend for the last [three] years. There were 1,086 pending and closed sales, down from last month,” according to the Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors’ October 2008 Home Sales Report.

This isn’t to say that the real estate market in Albuquerque is magically immune to all of the problems facing the housing market. Appreciation rates in the region have certainly declined in recent years and months, just as they have all across the United States.

“The market in Albuquerque is making a transition. Home prices are beginning to slide for the first time in years as the mortgage melt down affects the area. Loans are becoming tougher to get, and some prospective home buyers are failing to qualify for financing. It’s taking longer for homes to sell in Albuquerque. The boom is over,” according to Housing Predictor’s New Mexico report.
