The property has a slight slope to the back but don’t worry, the property is not in a flood zone but high and dry. It also has great access to Southern Blvd. which takes you right into Rio Rancho.

The lot is nicely located with beautiful views of the mountains beyond. Soon this will be very valuable real estate once utilities are extended into the area. But for now, rev up your ATV, get out your dirt bike and put on your boots. This is rural living at its best.


Comparable Values

Rio Rancho Values

This 2012 county map shows Unit 9 prices for 1 acre to be the highest in the area at $8,000. That was five years ago folks and you know what direction prices have gone since then.

This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone because Rio Rancho continues to grow, and Unit 9 is closest to those areas that are growing, as well as to proposed growth areas like Quail Ranch just to the south.

And keep in mind the Paseo del Volcan road extension intended to connect I-40 with US Hwy 550 that will eventually form the western boundary of Unit 9 bringing even more growth to the area.
