UPDATED Link - July 27, 2011: Click here, View upper Canyon Homes for Sale
The Upper Canyon is a popular area located on the far west end of Ruidoso, and is comprised of several separate subdivisions. Main Rd. follows the path of the Ruidoso River from Mechem Dr, west to the Mescalero Apache Reservation border. Many of the homes in the Upper Canyon area were built in the 1930s thru the 1960s. Some have been remodeled and some have not. There are many nice, large homes located on the Ruidoso River as well as many small cabins scattered along the valley and hill sides.
The subdivisions I have included for this article, and analysis of recent sales data, are: Central, Chateaux Village, Cree, Dufo, Flume Canyon, McCarty, McDaniel Heights, Pinescape, Sherwood Forest, Sleepy Hollow, Singing Pines, Silver Mountain Terrace, Ruidoso Acres, and White Fir.
** UPDATE - 06-2010: Statistical data originally shown here has been removed. Please contact me with any questions regarding sold data for these areas. **
Keep in mind that in July of 2008, the Upper Canyon was hit hard by one of the worst floods in Ruidoso history. Months of bridge repair and river cleanup followed, with some repair work still underway today. Driving down Main, however, there are only a few areas where you see the impact of the flood, mostly at the river crossings. Many of the homes in the area were not affected at all. The flood has probably slowed real estate sales in the Upper Canyon this year, however, it is impossible to know what amount of decline is attributable to the flood damage and what to the general downturn in the real estate market here and nation wide.
