Eldorado Studio Tour – 2014

The Eldorado Studio Tour is New Mexico’s largest studio tour showcasing 90 professional artists and artisans. The exhibited work includes painting, ceramics and clay sculpture, drawing, glass, jewelry, photography, and printmaking. Also included are woodworking, digital images, fiber and wearable art, mixed media and recycled art.

Each participating artist donates a percentage of his or her sales from the tour to support selected programs in the community. The Eldorado Arts and Crafts Association (EACA) donates an average of $4500.00 each year to Eldorado community organizations.

In order to better plan your Studio Tour weekend, we invite you to visit the Preview Gallery in The Exhibit Space at La Tienda at Eldorado. You may view a sample of the creative works of our artists and artisans. The preview gallery will be open for two weeks prior to the tour, as well as an hour before the tour begins both days. Take a brochure. Mark your favorites. Plan your weekend.

Eldorado Real Estate Report – Nov. 2013 – April 2014

Here is the monthly Eldorado Real Estate report, covering the last six months from November 2013 through April 2014. We have begun our busy season and as you can see from the graphs below activity has increased.

– 59 active listings in April, 17 went under contract and 14 sold.

– $152 was the average price per square foot in April. Remember it depends on the size of the house and the quality of the finishes. The larger the house, the lower the price per square foot. This has ranged from $152 – $176 over the last six months.

-108 were the average days on the market last month. This is the lowest days on the market time in the last eight months.

– 97% is the sales price vs. listing price for April. This has ranged from 94% – 97% for the six months, and this is the third month in a row sellers are realizing 97% of their listing price.

– 362K was the average listing price in April.

– 341K was the average sales price.

– 4.2 months 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 of inventory signals a healthy market, so our neighborhood is doing well.
