What to watch for in your Land Search
Taos is a small historic town located in north central New Mexico. With the age and historical nature of the area, Taos real estate can be complicated to purchase, and you need to make sure you evaluate the many specific details of the local market. This is why you will want to have access to all information sources for a particular real estate lot or parcel when you are considering purchasing some Taos real estate.
While there are town or community services available for most properties within the Taos town boundaries and perhaps within reasonably close proximity to the town boundaries, the majority of lots in the area are not within the town boundaries and subsequently these properties do not have some typically common utility services, like water service or sewer service. This makes it imperative that you know what water and sewer utility services are available for a property, which often means that you will need to have a well drilled and you will need to install a septic system.
But even knowing this, there are other details you will need to know about Taos real estate. If the property is served by a shared well, who is it shared with and what are the obligation of the people sharing the well in regards to providing electrical power to the well and maintaining the well in case it malfunctions. If you will need to install a septic system on your Taos property, what type of septic system will be allowed for the property? Can you install a conventional leach-field system? Would a holding tank system that needs to be pumped out regularly as it fills up be allowed? Or is your only option an expensive advanced wastewater treatment system that requires regular servicing and monitoring?
Taos real estate is typically also subject to restrictions on how the land can be used. This includes things like the Taos County or Town land use regulations, specific subdivision restrictions or covenants, covenants or restrictions detailed in the current or past deeds related to the property, or even limitations or restrictions placed on the land from historic land grants.
