The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe

Camino De Las Animas – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico

Camino De Las Animas – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico


The smell of the sleeping streets calms me on my morning walk through Camino De Las Animas. Birds sing and the dogs bark. It’s a short lane near downtown Santa Fe with a gorgeous abundance of Victorian, Territorial and Pueblo Revival architecture.  No less prominent is the home of one of our most famous artists, Gustav Baumann,

now owned and preserved by the Historic Santa Fe Foundation.  Several homes on this street are included in the National Register of Historic Places. When you come to visit Santa Fe, be sure to take a stroll on this magical street to see why life in this city is so enchanting.

Michael’s Minute of Real The President signed an extension and expansion of the Homebuyer Tax Credit through April 30, 2010.  As long as the home is under contract by that date and closing occurs by June 30, 2010 an $8,000 tax credit is available for first-time homebuyers (those who have not purchased a home within the last three years). A credit if $6,500 is available for homeowners who have lived in the home they are selling, or have sold, as a principle residence for five consecutive years of the past eight.  These credits are available to buyers with incomes below $125,000 for singles and $225,000 for married couples.  Homes valued at more than $800,000 are not eligible.  Please feel free to call me for more details at 505.470.4180
