Rio Rancho is a growing city in New Mexico, and for many reasons.  People looking to buy a home find that Rio Rancho has much to offer as a mid-sized city of 93,000 residents.  There’s a strong employment base, thanks mostly to Intel being located there. But residents also appreciate the proximity to Albuquerque.

Things really started to change for this city in 1981, when it was incorporated as a city and Intel opened a plant. Many young families moved to the area as well due to low interest home loans in the early 1980s. Since then the city has boomed, gaining more independence from Albuquerque.

Residents enjoy the fine shopping and dining in Rio Rancho.  The local stores sell hand-crafted jewelry, southwestern-flavored art and crafts, western wear, gourmet edibles, and more.  Or you can take a short drive to Cottonwood Mall which features more than 135 retailers. Dining options include Banana Leaf vegetarian (Asian fusion), Noda's Japanese Cuisine, Toro Tequila Bar and Grill steakhouse, and more.

And don’t forget to enjoy the many parks in Rio Rancho, where you can relax, walk the dog, or get some exercise in the great southwest outdoors.
