Went to the computer this AM to post a bunch of updated reports and spreadsheets about Santa Fe residential real estate sales and inventory. But Uncle WordPress had chosen to request a simple update of the software used in my and many other blogs.
Little did I know this 68 year old would have to learn a new posting system and a bunch of new icons and keystrokes to do what I was trying to do. For example I have yet to find the check spelling button. But hey! It’s the best version out there, they said. Reminds me of that saying some POTUS idiot said “I have the best words” or ” I hire the best people”
We know now that those were the first wave of a series of lies. Let us try to stay honest here and now that I am getting over the unexpected learning session with my blog postings, real estate in Santa Fe is getting scary, don’t you know? There is so little inventory in the lower end the only solution, assuming new homes don’t start showing up in large numbers, is a tighter rental market, more mobile and manufactured homes sales up to an hour from Santa Fe, and an increase in multi-generational households. Oh and the prices of homes in the lowest price ranges, where inventory is so lean, will have to go up because buyers will choose to pay more to get the basic home they feel they must have.
So after not budgeting for that extra 90 minutes of old guy computer learning, a painful sight indeed, I will be posting my narrative and exceptionally witty opinions about the state of our market in the next couple days when I get back to this screen. Meanwhile, read the reports, download and print them if you wish. Please provide appropriate author credit and attribution instead of claiming you designed and built this trove of historical data.

Happy New Year!!!
