Considering selling your Santa Fe home or property?


We have four reasons why you should list your home with us now, and each one is so essential we don’t know which to talk about first.


Especially in today’s Santa Fe real estate market, these four reasons are like the four legs of a chair. They all work together to ensure a smooth selling process and the highest possible return.


Market Conditions That Favor Sellers

The Santa Fe real estate market is experiencing low inventory and high demand across the board, which creates a seller’s market.


A seller’s market is one that favors home sellers. With more homebuyers than there are properties for sale, sellers have the advantage because demand exceeds supply.


According to Forbes Advisor, characteristics of a seller’s market in real estate include multiple offers from buyers and homes that sell comparatively faster, with fewer days on the market.


A Location That Appeals to a Wide Variety of Homebuyers

Santa Fe appeals to a wide variety of homebuyers from retirees to families to young professionals.


Our location gives us an average of 325 sunny days a year. Santa Fe residents enjoy four distinct seasons with summer temperatures moderated by the 7,000+ foot elevation. Winters are mild with an average snowfall of 32 inches in town. If you’re a skier, that snowfall can hit 300 inches in the higher elevation ski areas.


Aside from the attractive climate, Santa Fe offers a unique arts and cultural scene that creates a pull factor for homebuyers. From the galleries on Canyon Road to the International Folk Art Market and the open-air operas, arts and culture flourish in all corners of The City Different.


Santa Fe is a paradise for hiking, mountain biking, golf, and living outdoors. Money magazine reported in Best Places to Live in 2019 that 5 percent of the city’s population commutes to work by walking or biking, supported by a downtown that supports both.


Livability.com ranked Santa Fe on its list of the 10 best places to get a fresh start. As they put it, “A lot of people come to Santa Fe because it offers a different kind of lifestyle—and an invitation for self-reflection and evolution. Living here means being surrounded by desert vistas, sunshine, cultural traditions, and an abundance of visual and performing arts.”


Sperling’s Best Places ranked Santa Fe as one of the top 10 best cities in the country for foodies and one of the best green cities in the nation.


All these attributes factor into the buyers who are attracted to Santa Fe—both the people who relocate here and the people who already live here and want to buy a new home.
