What does living in luxury mean to you? And what would the ideal luxurious location be? Someplace warm, where you did not have to worry about snow and torrential rain, for starters. What spots come to mind? Florida or California. But Florida is America’s retirement home, and California is just chock full of wannabe actors. Try someplace else. Try luxury living in the southwest.
- Luxury Living in the Southwest
- Buy or Build a Home
- Why Santa Fe?
No one ever used to consider it, but one of the most perfect places for luxury living in the southwest is beautiful New Mexico. Take the lovely city of Santa Fe, for example. If you were to choose one of the many gorgeous luxury homes in Santa Fe, you would be conveniently locating yourself in the middle of bustling culture, fantastic food, and pristine nature, all of the time.
When you are going through the effort of choosing the perfect spot of land, with the perfect house on it, you expect to be living there for quite some time. As such, you need to consider more than just the land size and the neighborhood. Location on a broader scale is also very important.
The next decision to consider is whether you want to look into condos for sale, luxury homes for sale, or just land for sale so that you can build your own custom dream house. Condos can be super nice, but a condominium is when you purchase and own a luxury apartment, that is in the building with a bunch of other individual apartments. You share the building and have neighbors sharing walls. The condo that you own is huge and stunning, but if you do not like an apartment-like setting, then it is not for you.
You can always buy a beautiful home that has been built on an expansive tract of land. Sure, you may have neighbors, but they may be a few acres away, and you will not be sharing the same wall. Or, you can just scoop up some land and build your own dream home on it, precisely to your own specifications. This is the safest way to make sure that you get the perfect home that you have always wanted.
So what is it about the place that makes people want to move and establish homes in Santa Fe? There is everything that you could ever want or need in Santa Fe. There is a broad and colorful history to experience and learn there. The cuisine there can be simple or elegant (or both), and is world renowned. There are countless outlets to experience nature, whether it is fishing, hiking, mountain biking, river rafting or skiing. There is always a market going on, like the Swaia winter market, the summer market, or various other Native American markets. Not to mention the countless outlets for both visual and performing arts.
Stop fantasizing about dreams of moving out west, and just do it. With all of the reasons to love Santa Fe, and some of the most beautiful property you will ever see, it is not a move that you will regret. In fact, you will end up asking yourself why you never did it sooner. Talk to your spouse and start planning now.
