Welcome to Eldorado!

Eldorado, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is home to some of the most sought-after real estate properties in the county. My name is Lisa Smith and I am a resident and a realtor in this community. I specialize in Eldorado homes for purchase. It is truly a unique community which offers something for everyone: hiking trails, biking, swimming, tennis, basketball, stables, soccer fields, dog park, children’s parks, a 4,000 acre nature preserve and more.

It’s just 20 minutes to the heart of Santa Fe and the art, culture and history our beautiful city offers as well as excellent year-round climate, gorgeous views, clean air and a variety of recreational activities.

There are 2,600 homes on 8,000 acres with about 6,000 residents. Singles, families, artists, couples, sports enthusiasts, writers, historians—you won’t meet a boring person, believe me! Residents have moved here to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Santa Fe or just enjoy the beauty of Eldorado.

The homes are primarily pueblo style with a few Northern New Mexico (pitched metal roof) style mixed in.

Eldorado’s Agora shopping center has restaurants, shops and mail services as well as a beautiful landscaped courtyard. Meet your neighbors on the patio at Copa de Oro.

Dues are an extremely low $300 a year and the county maintains the roads. Eldorado also has the top ranked Volunteer Fire Department in the state. Click on covenants for an explanation of the sensible rules and regulations. There are lots of photos to enjoy too.

I would not live anywhere else! Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this wonderful community or the real estate properties available in Eldorado. I would be happy to introduce you to your future home.

Simply put, Lisa Smith managing the sale of my house was a gift that I will cherish the rest of my life.  Lisa is a woman of few words, and all action and results. She sold my house in one day. She managed every aspect of the escrow superlatively, informing me of actions needed, and always provided outstanding direction, with the most frequent comment being that she had already taken care of it.  It was the perfect escrow. We even closed a week early.  Lisa is one of the smartest, most capable and caring people I have ever encountered. I made a decision early on to just trust her 100%:  to follow her direction and advice without question. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.  She exceeded my highest expectations on a daily basis. There are not words to adequately praise Lisa Smith. And probably equally as valuable as her brilliant execution, Lisa has a heart of gold. My needs were truly No. 1.  It simply doesn’t get any better than Lisa Smith.

Eldorado Real Estate Report – Aug. 2016 – Jn. 2017

Eldorado Real Estate Report – Aug. 2016 – Jn. 2017

Here is the monthly Eldorado Real Estate Report covering the last six months from August 2016 to January 2017. The inventory of available homes for sale is very low. If you are considering listing your property, now would be an ideal time.

In January:

12 Active Eldorado Properties 

13 Homes Under Contract

19 Sold – this is the ONLY time in the last 13 years there were more solds than active properties. (That is how far back the MLS data goes)

– $175 was the average price per square foot in January. Remember this number depends on a wide range of factors –  the size of the house, age, quality of the finishes, views, heating, construction, etc. The larger the house, the lower the price per square foot. This average has ranged from $175 – $190 in the last six months. Some properties are as low as $119 and as high as $250.

166 were the average days on the market last month. This includes the number of days the property was under contract which is typically 30-45 days.

– 97% is the sales price vs. listing price for January. This is the listing price when the property went under contract, not the original listing price, which may have been higher. This has ranged from 97% – 98% for the last six months. The sooner a property goes under contract, the closer to the listing price the seller is likely to receive.

– 414K was the average listing price last month. The average sales price was 363K.

2 WEEKS of Inventory – which means the length of time it would take to sell all the homes listed in Eldorado at the current rate of sales. Eight months indicates a healthy real estate market. This is extremely low. If you or someone you know is considering listing, and are waiting until the Spring, remember there will be more competition. Price it right and sell it now. 

If you would like to discuss the current state of the Eldorado market, or have questions about this beautiful neighborhood, please let me know.

2016 Eldorado Real Estate Report

2016 Eldorado Real Estate Report

Hello All and Happy New Year!
This Eldorado Real Estate Report will compare 2016 sales data with 2015. We live in a popular spot – and residents continue to relocate to Eldorado from all over the U.S. as well as sometimes beyond.
 
IN 2016:
Eldorado inventory of homes for sale is at an historical low. While the number of buyers is fewer now than other times of the year, winter shoppers are serious.
  • 168 properties sold in Eldorado in 2016. In 2015, 147 sold, 21 more homes sold in 2016.
  • 16 homes on the market in December. 15 went under contract and 14 closed/sold. Very busy for a December..
  • $187 was the average price per square foot in December. This has ranged from $151 to $190 last year. This largely depends on the size, finishes, age, condition etc..so this is not always a definitive measure of property value. Average price per sq. ft. in 2016 was $180, in 2015 it was $178 – so not a dramatic change there.
  • 163 were the average days on the market for December. In 2016, the average was 115, for 2015 it was 125 days. This number includes the 14 to 60 day escrow process as well, once a seller has accepted a contract.
  • 98% is the percentage of sales price vs. listing price. This refers to the listing price when the offer was made and accepted, not necessarily the original listing price. This has ranged from 97% – 100% for 2016. Essentially the same for 2015.
  • 432K was the average listing price in December. The highest for the year.
  • 231K was the average sales price in December – oddly the lowest of the year, which means there were a greater number of inexpensive properties sold that month.
  • 1.1 months of inventory – which means the length of time it would take to sell all the listed homes in Eldorado at the current rate of sales. Eight months indicates a healthy real estate market.
