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). The construction of the center and its attendant infrastructure should bring lots of jobs to the area, raising property values.
