Welcome to the 2018 Mesilla Area market report! Mesilla’s Historical Background gives it an edge when it comes to home sales. There were 105 homes sold in 2018 and in 2017. How often does that happen? In 2016, there were 74 homes sold. Even though the number of homes sold in 2018 and 2017 were the same, the average sales price is up significantly to $284,201 when it was $246,217 in 2017. Homes in Mesilla are highly desirable due to walking distance to the well known Mesilla plaza with some of the state’s highest rated restaurants and bars while still maintaining a close distance to New Mexico State University and the Las Cruces downtown area. This area also boasts plentiful agriculture with pecan trees, cotton and our beloved green chiles.
