BELEN

Belen real estate is approximately 40 minutes south of downtown Albuquerque, along the east side of the I-25 corridor. Commuting for work to Albuquerque is common, and now more convenient as the New Mexico rail runner makes a stop in Belen. Although Belen is a town in its own right, many people choose to work in Albuquerque and live in Belen because it may be more affordable and is more rural. It is also 45 minutes north of the School of Mines in Socorro, New Mexico. The price of owning Belen real estate can range from under $100,000 up to $500,000. Homes may sit on a few acres, and have irrigation for farming.

There is a sense of community in Belen as it was founded in 1740 by two Spaniards who named it Belen, which is Spanish for Bethlehem. By the 19th century Belen's economy expanded into sheep herding and the town began slowly growing. Some of Belen's real estate includes the Belen hotel which is on historic State and National registers. The land was purchased by Bertha Rutz for $850 where she built a red brick hotel she ran until her passing in 1953. Belen real estate is comprised of a lot of history surrounding the southwest. Nowadays it is still quaint and full of charm. For Belen real estate look up SWMLS area 741.
