2012 Santa Fe homes sales on pace to be best in five years

The New Mexican reported on August 11, 2012 that the summer of 2012 so far represents a rebound for residential sales in Santa Fe County.

The 158 residential sales in June were the highest number of closed transactions in 57 months. July’s sales total of 143 showed the trend continuing. Barring unforeseen circumstances, such as another financial crises, total sales in 2012 are on pace to be the best since 2007.

The total number of sales in the first seven months of 2012, 879, represents a 14 percent increase over 2011 and a 40 percent increase from 2009.

The sales have occurred in all price ranges. There have been 42 residential sales of $1 million or higher so far this year, and 366 sales at $300,000 or below according to statistics complied by Alan Ball, local real estate statistician guru.

The New Mexican observed that “Though the boost is helping the overall economy — with more business for agents, appraisers and inspectors, and increased revenue for local governments that collect gross receipts taxes — it does not necessarily mean jubilant sellers, since prices have not significantly increased from the bottom.

In the second quarter of 2012, the median sales price in the city and county combined had declined 6.8 percent from a year ago. And overall in Santa Fe County, the typical home has lost 30 percent of its value from the top of the market in 2007, according to some estimates.

That has led to a smaller inventory of homes as more owners refinance and stay put, waiting for prices to climb — especially as interest rates have remained low. At the end of June, for instance, there were 1,571 homes on the market countywide — a decrease of 19 percent from a year earlier, according to the Santa Fe Association of Realtors.

For those looking to buy, there is a new database to determine the average closing costs on a $200,000 loan in New Mexico. According to Bankrate.com, which surveyed five to 10 lenders in each state, those average costs total $3,617, including $435 for an appraisal, $495 for processing and $1,058 for the origination fee on the loan. In New Mexico, the average cost of a title search and insurance on a $200,000 loan is $1,434, according to Bankrate.

The 50-state average for closing fees is $3,754, with New York highest at $5,435 and Missouri the lowest at $3,006.”

CNNMoney names Santa Fe one of the Best Places to Retire Now

CNNMoney has named Santa Fe one of the Best Places to Retire Now.

By Anne VanderMey, reporter @FortuneMagazine, Posted June 20, 2012.  To read the original article in its entirety.

As reported by CNNMoney:

“Blue skies and mild winters don’t always have to mean Florida or Arizona. Santa Fe gets 325 days of sunshine per year, there are eight major golf courses in the area, and it’s a stone’s throw from a major mountain range: The Sangre de Cristo Mountains offer skiing, hiking, and spectacular views. It also has culture to spare: The city is packed with galleries and features a buzzing contemporary art scene, an internationally renowned opera, and an award-winning restaurant lineup.

No wonder, then, that in recent years Santa Fe has become an increasingly popular destination for retirees (and celebrities like Gene Hackman and Tom Ford). Housing isn’t cheap in the desirable center of town, where houses start at about $400,000, local realtors say. But closer to the outskirts, buyers can find classic pueblo-style homes for as little as $150,000.

Santa Fe has also held up well relative to other sun-drenched spots during the housing crisis. Employment here now outpaces the national average, and Fiserv Case-Shiller estimates that it will be one of the strongest housing markets over the next few years, with an annualized increase of 7.6% through 2016.”

American Lung Association Reports Santa Fe Air Ranks Among the Country’s Cleanest

By Staci Matlock | The New Mexican
Posted: Sunday, April 22, 2012  To read the original article in its entirety.

Breathe deeply, Santa Feans.

The City Different and Santa Fe County has some of the cleanest air in America, according to the American Lung Association.

That’s excellent news for children, elderly and people with asthma, cardiovascular disease and emphysema who are most at risk of health problems when they breath polluted air. An estimated third of Santa Fe County’s population falls into one of those categories.

The association analyzed data from 2007 to 2010 related to ozone and particles emitted from vehicle tailpipes, power generating stations, mining, manufacturing and more. The association has analyzed air quality in U.S. cities for the last dozen years and published the results in annual State of the Air reports.

The reports rank cities based on levels of ozone, short-term particle pollution and long-term particle pollution. Santa Fe joined Honolulu as the only cities who were on the association’s “cleanest air” list in all three categories from 2007-2010, the period for which data was analyzed.

Santa Fe earned an A for low ozone and 24-hour particle pollution, and it passed the annual particle pollution category.

Particles are mixtures of chemicals and materials floating around in air. Some are so tiny they can’t be seen without an electron microscope. Some are thinner than a strand of hair.

Smoke, dust, pollen and gas fumes are just a few of the particles launched into the air by wind, plants, power generation and wildfires. People inhale the particles with air. People cough out the larger particles, but smaller particles can get trapped in lung tissue, causing illness.

Ozone, another dangerous lung irritant analyzed by the American Lung Association, also comes from a mixture of gases produced by cars, smokestacks and burning coal. The gases — nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds — when combined with sunlight and warmth, produce harmful ozone in the lower atmosphere.

Children, people older than 65, those who like to exercise outdoors and people who have existing lung problems such as asthma are more susceptible to the ill effects of elevated ozone levels. People exposed to high levels of ozone can suffer wheezing, chest pain, asthma attacks and respiratory infections.

The American Lung Association report notes that while air quality has improved overall around the country, 1 in 17 Americans (18.5 million total) live around unhealthy levels of ozone and particles.
