Free Of Planning & Zoning Restrictions

Power At The Lot Line
Price: $2,000.00
Located just south-southeast of Belen in the Rio Grande Estates Subdivision, this one and a half acre parcel (two adjacent 3/4 acre lots) sits nestled among the blue skies and sagebrush that blanket the plain. One of the great things about owning land in Socorro County is that the local government has ZERO restrictions on what you can and can not build. As stated on their website: "Socorro County does not have a zoning or permitting ordinance. At this time there are no County regulations or restrictions on the use of real property..." This is ideal for anyone looking to build a tiny house, create their own off-grid encampment or simply park an RV for some indefinite period of time without having to worry about obtaining the burdensome building permit frequently required in other jurisdictions.

Another great thing about this part of Socorro County is it's close proximity to Albuquerque which sits just forty minutes to the north. As more Americans migrate to the 'sun belt' every year, driving up the demand for housing, it's only a matter of time before the population overflow expands into the currently deserted surrounding areas. Places like Socorro County and particularly a subdivision like this, located just off the I-25, are the most likely candidates to meet that demand for housing. In short, buy now and watch as the value of your land continues to increase!

Property Specific Notes:
  • This 1.5 acre lots sits in Unit 1 just north of Highway 60 off the doubly named Guadalupe Ave/Escobar Street.

  • Because of its proximity to the highway, power lines can be found throughout the nearby area, as well as on the property itself. This will make bringing power to the property easier and more affordable than similar lots that do not have this feature.

  • Additionally, this property’s proximity to the highway means its an area that sees more traffic than the other, more remote regions of the subdivision. Because of this, the roads here are well maintained and easy to traverse in any vehicle type.

  • The lots immediately east of this property have neighbors living on them. While 1.5 acres is a large enough chunk of land to insure a good amount of distance between you and whoever else is living nearby, anyone looking for more privacy may want to view one of our other lots in Rio Grande Estates.

  • This property sits in close proximity to a small cafe.
