“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president
This lot is nestled among the mountains in the wide open desert where horses run free.
But don’t worry, it is not in the middle of nowhere. The plot is part of the existing Tierra Grande subdivision, which has some 1,900 other lots that are going fast. The subdivision is accessible from multiple highways, including Interstate 25, New Mexico Highway 47 and U.S. Highway 60 (which runs through Tierra Grande).
The area is zoned for single family residential and residents are allowed to keep 2 horses per acre. Perfect for your future ranch!
The lot is 100% buildable and ripe for the picking. Homes in the area sell for an average price of about $113,000, so building a house is a great way to increase the value of this lot. See image #7 for a Zillow estimate of average homes prices in the area.

ABOUT TIERRA GRANDE
Tierra Grande is a subdivision within Valencia County, New Mexico. As part of your purchase of this lot, you will also buy into 14,000 acres of permanent open space, conserved and maintained by the Tierra Grande Improvement Association. The area also borders the Manzona Mountains in the Cibola National Forest Reserve, which has many trails for hiking, backpacking and horseback riding. The area is known for the beauty of its night sky, which has been declared by New Mexico as one of the state’s Most Endangered Cultural Resources.
Belen is the largest city in Valencia County and is only 17 minutes away from Tierra Grande. Belen is geographically at the center of New Mexico and is a transportation hub for the state. There is a commuter railroad to Albuquerque and Santa Fe in Belen and several festivals throughout the year. The total population is around 7,000.
Property values in Belen and Valencia County are likely to see a boost due to the upcoming construction of a Facebook data center in Los Lunas (15 minutes outside of Belen and 30 minutes from Tierra Grande).
