Buying a Home in New Mexico

Good Homes for Great People

Looking to buy a home in Rio Rancho or the greater Albuquerque area? The first thing you’ll need to do is get prequalified for a loan so that we know what we’re looking for. We have a list of preferred lenders, or you can go through your personal lender. After you’re prequalified, you’ll begin to get emails from our team with new homes coming on the market and homes with price reductions or increases.

After perusing online, we can set up walk-throughs for homes you’re most interested to see. Once you make a choice, we’ll help you craft an offer and begin managing all the transactional details to get you to closing day. These details include setting up an escrow with the title company, arranging an appraisal, inspections, navigating any repair requests, and more. Our vast experience guarantees you’re in good hands, and we can help you walk through anything that could arise.
