There is more great economic news on the horizon for Albuquerque!In addition to the 800+ jobs that HP will be transferring to Rio Rancho, as I mentioned in my last post, even more jobs will be available at the new Fidelity Investments facility.
Last January, Fidelity Investments announced that they would be moving to a new, 210,000 SF facility in Albuquerque's Mesa Del Sol mixed-use project, according to Reuters. They expect ultimately to have 1250 jobs at this facility, and now they're beginning hiring! This is great employment news for Albuquerque!
According to the Fidelity Investments website, the company will be holding an Open House on July 29th, from 2:00-7:00 for prospective employees to meet with company hiring managers. At this point, Fidelity Investments is hiring 100 new HR Service Associates, and they expect to employ 300 people in Albuquerque by the end of 2008. Interested? Just click here for more information on the jobs and the hiring process.
This should boost the Albuquerque real estate market, already much stronger than most real estate markets around the country, even further. According to an article in the New Mexico Business Weekly, the 1250 jobs eventually expected at Fidelity's Mesa del Sol facility are expected to be in the $37,000-$65,000 range, thus making these new or transferred employees well able to purchase new homes. And whether a buyer's preference is for historic homes or horse properties, Tanoan or downtown lofts, there are plenty of great Albuquerque homes available for these new buyers!
