Albuquerque Real Estate Information - East Mountain Area real estate

The area located on the east side of the 10,000-foot high Sandia Mountains and Manzano Mountains is referred to as "the East Mountain area." The area encompasses more than 500 square miles in Bernalillo, Santa Fe, and Torrance counties, just east of Albuquerque, the state's largest city. The area is bisected by Interstate 40, the primary east-west connection to the city of Albuquerque.

The area has developed around three mountain ranges controlled by the National Forest Service - the Sandia, Manzanita, and Manzano Mountains. These mountains provide diverse recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat areas, and a high level of scenic beauty to the area. Because of unique weather patterns, it boasts being the "green side" of the southern Rocky Mountain range.

The East Mountain Area population has shown dramatic growth through the last two decades, with a much higher growth rate than most areas of the state. In Bernalillo County, which includes Albuquerque, more that a third of the building permits issued occur within the East Mountain Area. The overall population of the East Mountain Area is estimated to be more than 25,000 - with more than half living in Bernalillo County.

The average altitude of the East Mountain Area is between 6,500 and 7,000 feet above sea level. (For comparison, Albuquerque's average altitude is 5,300 feet; Santa Fe is 7,000 feet.) Cedar Crest, Sandia Park, and Sandia Knolls are small communities on the east side of the Sandia Mountains. All are bedroom communities for Albuquerque and are inhabited by those seeking a more rural environment and who prefer living in the pines found on the east slope.
