The Rio Grande Estates is a very large, undeveloped subdivision community. All lots are located in Socorro County, and are approximately 60 minutes south of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They are well suited for off-grid, tiny house, and eventual retirement living. Buy now and lock in an inexpensive lot for the future.
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. Adjacent to Socorro County, 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.
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 lots are all considered to be 1 acre lots, even though some may be slightly smaller. The exact measurements of these lots are generally either 180 feet wide by 242 feet deep, or they are 177 feet wide by 222 feet deep. The roads are all dedicated roads which means none of the property area is given up to be part of the road easement.
There is maintained county road frontage into this subdivision. Every parcel has legal access on platted road frontage and these roads were all graded in several years ago.
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 want to dig a well for water, wells in the area are approximately 200 to 350 feet deep. Sewage would be by septic – when you build. Taxes are only $19.64 per year and are current, and have free and clear titles.
