The Las Cruces area offers a wide variety of affordable housing neighborhoods.
The City of Las Cruces recognizes the need for affordable housing and has an Affordable Housing Office to make sure the mix of housing in the city provides an opportunity for first-time home buyers and those who are retiring and downsizing. Several major home building companies specialize in providing homes in this price range, which are typically below $ 200,000. Affordable housing has to meet the same stringent building codes as higher-priced custom homes. The cost is kept in check by containing the lot size and the square footage of the home. Many of the communities that specialize in affordable homes have built into their master plan open park spaces and walking trails.
