Don’t wait on the sidelines for too long, with interest rates still at record lows but rising, now is the time to purchase the home of your dreams. To make sure you don't overpay for your home, you'll want to have an agent that does a thorough market analysis of the Las Cruces home of which you are making an offer.




If you are interested in current inventory in Las Cruces, NM you can find that information by clicking on the link. High inventory will suggest that homes are sitting on the market for longer. Currently, in the Las Cruces area, single-family homes have a median time of 79 days on the market before they sell.




Sellers should make sure to price their home near the market value if they expect to get an offer from interested buyers.  I wouldn't expect home prices to increase to record levels like we've seen in the past, as banks have gotten a lot stricter on lending guidelines and are no longer giving a loan to anyone with a pulse.
