There are many different kinds of homes you can find in the downtown area for a variety of prices. Several townhouses with anywhere from one to three bedrooms and one to three bathrooms are available for between roughly $155,000 and $363,000. If it is a condo you desire, there are plenty of those up for sale for $175,000 and above. Many of the homes for sale in downtown were built early in the 20th Century and have the sort of beauty and character lacking in many of the cookie cutter homes being built today. Many of these houses go for between $210,000 and $700,000. Other downtown real estate opportunities include lots that can be developed into new homes or businesses.
Following a 10-year revitalization process, the downtown is one of the most active areas of Albuquerque. There is never a lack of activity for you to enjoy, all just a short distance from your front door. The Civic Plaza hosts numerous events throughout the year, including the Sizzlin' Summerfest, which features free family oriented music events every Saturday night. The Albuquerque Convention Center has all sorts of events scheduled throughout the year, from concerts to sporting events to church assemblies to trade shows and much more. The historic KiMo Theater is one of the city's most notable landmarks and hosts a variety of concerts, shows and films. Central Avenue is home to many nightclubs, restaurants and other events. Getting around the city is also easy as your home is close to rail and bus lines.
Schools are another consideration for families looking for real estate in downtown. This area of Albuquerque has an elementary school, a middle school, a charter high school and a private school not far from your home.
