The City with Festivals & Events!

I certainly love living here! One of the best decisions I made on Real Estate. The city neighbors are friendly and kind and will go out of the way to lend a helping hand. Transportation is convenient and accessible, average commute time one-way is about 20.17 minutes and seven seconds. For an upscale area, rent is affordable. Of course, it gets cold here however, for the quality of homes and amenities offered in the area, it's certainly worth it, where there is always something exciting going on! The only disadvantage is the job market has not been good. The amount of jobs has decreased about 1.21%. The average salary here is about $33,000. Although jobs have decreased within the past year, there are still plenty of lucrative positions that offer full-time or part-time work. Summers in New Mexico are phenomenal! I love this time of year, besides the barbecues and the picnics there are multiple street festivals held in the city around this time of year. This is area is great for living, touring and vacationing.
