Information About Placitas

 If you don’t see the enchantments of New Mexico where you are, consider moving to Placitas. Many Placitas homes masterfully display the exquisite views of our mountain ranges, hills and mesas.

    Leave the city distractions and find a home surrounded by the delights of the Wild Southwest.  Look out your window and enjoy the common Placitas sight: sagebrush speckled hills. Watch for deer, jack rabbits and other creatures as you hike on one of many hiking trails or take a relaxing stroll around your property. Homes typically have plenty of space between neighbors. At dusk enjoy one of the most enchanting gems of New Mexico: the sun setting with accompanying blue, pink, purple and red hues over stretches of land and mountain peaks.
