5 Acre Flat Terrain Land Parcel nestled in the The Beautiful Countryside of Buena Vida Subdivision, just 10 miles West of Roswell, NM. In the Southeast part of the State. New Southwest Style homes have been built in Units 1 & 2 of Buena Vida. The last home that was listed for sale in the area by Remax is a Ranch style home sitting on 6 acres priced for $238,000; just to give you an idea of what the property would potentially be valued for. Buena Vida maintains covenants which requires each land owner to solely use their lot for residential purposes. So you will not find any cows mooing or pigs oinking from any farming operations in Buena Vida. Average values of the lots (land only) in Unit 1-2 are between $28,000-$40,000. This lot that you would own is about 5 miles into the subdivision off Tierre Grande Blvd. in Unit 4. Each lot owner would have to drill their own water well and bring any utility connections to this lot. Taxes are just $5 per year and have NOT risen since I have purchased this property in 2006. Association Fees are $75 per year and have also been the same price over the past 5 years. Being a member of the Buena Vida Association gives you the use of tennis courts, swimming pool, and horse stables, and other available amenities. Some attractions in the area include the Bottomless Lakes State Park, with swimming, camping, picnicking, fishing, boating, sailing, trails, and wildlife viewing. You can also visit the New Mexico Museum of Space History. If you would like more information on the Buena Vida and Roswell, feel free to visit Buenavidaland.com or Roswell Vistor Bureaus website. If you decide to visit the property and you are from out of town, there are nice hotels, restaurants, and museums in downtown Roswell The year round temperature in Roswell can range from 40-85 degrees. I've had the opportunity to visit Roswell most recently in the Winter. When I visited in December, temps were about 40 at night and 60-65 during during the day. Southeast New Mexico is one of the few pockets of the country that have relatively mild winters for those needing a warmer climate to migrate to in the " Hawk Days of Winter..." Buenavida is about 70 miles from Ruidoso, New Mexico.. Ruidoso is known for horse races, casinos, and both summer and winter recreation activities.
