One of the drawbacks of living in the area is there is not as much shopping or dining, but that's beginning to change.
There are four MLS areas in Northwest Albuquerque: Ladera Heights, Northwest Heights, Paradise East and Paradise West. Popular neighborhoods in NW Albuquerque include Taylor Ranch, Ventana Ranch, Seven Bar Ranch and Richland Hills to name just a few.
Albuquerque's North Valley runs along the eastern edge of the Rio Grande. Offering convenient travel to most of Albuquerque, this rural center of the city features ranches, estates and farms.
