Big Things are Happening in Albuquerque: Check Out The Latest News!

There’s a lot to love about Albuquerque. After all, we’ve got a historic and iconic downtown, scenic parks and green spaces along the banks of the Rio Grande, and wildly popular annual events. But lately, there have been a few additions in the community that have made life in Albuquerque even more one-of-a-kind!

From new businesses moving in to old businesses gaining national recognition, take a look at the latest happenings around Albuquerque.

New Mexico United

New Mexico and Albuquerque residents have always been interested in soccer, but there hasn’t been a team that’s really taken off yet. Until now, that is. The Albuquerque Sol, a semi-professional team, has been fairly popular since it started 2014. The popularity of the team has now led to the USL announcing an expansion club in the city.

New Mexico United was officially announced in October of 2018, but they didn’t play their first game until this past March. The first game drew in a whopping 12,900 fans, nearly filling up the 13,500 seats available in the Isotopes Park Stadium. The club hopes to build a stadium downtown soon, but will share the space with the Isotopes until then.

NBC & Netflix

Albuquerque’s job market is about to get a little busier. Two major companies, NBC and Netflix, have both announced plans to establish a base in Albuquerque. NBCUniversal will be redeveloping a warehouse in town into a state-of-the-art studio, with two sound stages, office space, and a mill. In addition to bringing more money into the city, NBCUniversal also aims to directly bring 330 full-time jobs and a number of helpful initiatives to the city.

For Netlix, Albuquerque will be the site of a huge new production hub. A billion dollar deal that’s expected to bring in 1,000 jobs per year to New Mexico, the Netflix deal isn’t only good for the present, but also shows promise for the future. Albuquerque is more and more cementing its role as highly sought-after location for film and television production.

Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm

Los Poblanos has been around since 1932 and has long been an institution around Albuquerque. The property offers fifty rooms, an organic farm, 25 acres of lavender fields and gardens, the restaurant CAMPO, and more. It’s widely considered to be one of the most breathtaking historic properties in the region.

Just a few weeks ago, though, Los Poblanos gained national recognition. The inn and farm was awarded the Best Midsize Hotel Design award by Hospitality Design Magazine, beating out competition from all across the world. Executive Director Matthew Rembe accepted the award at a ceremony in NYC, emphasizing how the inn aims to both preserve history and bring innovation to the space. Perhaps we’ll start to see a little more traffic coming in for Los Poblanos!

Planning on Retiring in Your Albuquerque Dream Home? Read This First

If you’re well established in your career, you may already be thinking about retirement. If you’re nearing or have already reached it; we want to say congratulations! Retiring is an exciting part of life, one you’ve probably been looking forward to for a while.

Do you know where you’ll be retiring to? Ultimately, where you live out your retirement should complement the retirement lifestyle you want to have. Many retirees, as they advance in age, want to stay in their own home (instead of moving to an assisted living facility.)

This is called “aging in place.” It’s a wonderful option for homeowners who have the means to stay in their home. If you’d like to buy the perfect home to retire in, continue reading for some tips.

The Benefits to Aging in Place

In many cases, staying in your home as you age can be less expensive than moving to an assisted-living facility. Plus, you have the added comfort of being in the home you know. Your friends and community are still nearby to take an active part in your life.

If you’re planning on aging in place, here are four things to keep in mind as you search for your dream home.

Opt For a More Accessible Home

Keep Developing YourPlan

How thoroughly have you planned your retirement years? It’s not enough to make on plan and stick with it, you should evolve your plan as your situation changes.

If, you start to need more care as you age, your plan should change to reflect that.

Ensure Your Home is Safe
