South Capitol, The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico


Since this is the neighborhood in which I live, I’m excited to tell you about this thriving district.  Settled at the turn of the last century there was need for housing close to the bustling Santa Fe Rail Yard. Homes here were built with Victorian architecture, Territorial brick design and Pueblo Revival styles; many of them made of adobe. From our house, we can walk to everything Santa Fe has to offer, including the new trains in the Rail Yard District, the downtown plaza, museums and the Santa Fe River.   The New Mexico Rail Runner will take you to Albuquerque for a mere $8.00. The neighborhood is home to The Farmer’s Market, fabulous art galleries, fine dining and cafes, and excellent shopping opportunities. Of course, the beautiful State Capitol building is here   I’d love to show you the area along with my new office located at 150 Washington Avenue

Michael’s Bit of Real Estate

Not all remodels are created equal.  You may already be familiar with Remodeling magazine’s popular Cost vs. Value report, which documents the average return on investment expected for specific improvement projects.  But have you taken into account the latest design trends that will make your home more desirable and thus more valuable?  For example, many buyers are seeking homes with hardwood, composite or travertine tile flooring because they require less maintenance than carpet and give a home a beautiful and natural feel.  Replacing carpeted areas with these contemporary flooring options can give your home a worthwhile face-lift.
