Green Chile Cheeseburger

Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail, New Mexico

New Mexico’s Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail — with nearly 100 spots to sample — is a tasty way to add a little spice to your life this year.

Though their exact origins are unknown, the distinctive burgers laden with cheese and green chiles have appeared on menus across the state since at least the 1950s.

At Sparky’s in Hatch, a town defined by chiles, you can wash your burger down with a green chile shake.

At 5 Star Burgers — a chain with locations in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos — green chile mayo amps up the green chile cheeseburger experience.

But we all know that the Santa Fe Bite has the best green chile cheeseburger anywhere.

Happy New Year!

Here is the 2015 Eldorado Real Estate Report. Lots of activity last year and prices are slowly moving up.

147 properties sold in Eldorado in 2015. In 2014, 148 sold. So volume was about the same.

26 homes on the market in December. 13 went under contract and 10 closed/sold.
$204 was the average price per square foot in December. This has ranged from $166 to $209 last year. This largely depends on the size, finishes, age, condition etc..so this is not always a definitive measure of property value. Up about an average of $50 from last year.
98 were the average days on the market for December. In 2015, this ranged from a high of 224 in March to the low of 52 in October.
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 96% – 99% for 2015.
$431,000 was the average listing price in December. The highest for the year.
$401,000 was the average sales price in December. Also the highest for the year.
2.6 months is the months of inventory. This means the length of time it would take to sell all the listed home in Eldorado at the current rate of sales. Eight months indicates a healthy real estate market, so Eldorado remains a popular and in-demand neighborhood.
