Hi all! Ally here. My husband and I are planning a move to ABQ. in about a year. We would like to rent before we consider buying.
We are considering Rio rancho or east mtns. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for either of these places?
We have a 2.5 yr.old (3.5, by then) whom we are planning to homeschool. I've been a long time viewer of this board, but infrequent participant. I know i would love to meet some of you and your children and exchange homeschool info., but we have been living north of Santa fe, so that hasn't been possibly. Thanks to you all.
Hi Ally - We moved to ABQ in July. We live in the East Mountains. We love it! But we like a more rural, private area. It's quiet out here. If you and your family is into wildlife, then you will be in heaven!!! Tijeras & Cedar Crest are more mountainy. Moriarty and Edgewood are more flat. (I have heard people say that their realtors told them there wasn't much for sale out here - don't believe them!)
If you like a neighborhood setting with lots of kids, then you would probably be very happy with Rio Rancho area. There seems to be lots of young families moving there. It seems to be a major hub!! Lots of great stores and resturants.
The Rio Grande area by the river is gorgeous too! It's a cool area! It has lots of character!!!
