New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority


University of New Mexico, Bureau of Business and Economic Research


The Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) at the University of New Mexico conducted a survey of apartment properties in communities across the state for the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA). The survey was undertaken in May 2010, with non-response follow-up extending into mid-July. Vacancy and rent data for mid-May, along with the year the structure was built, were requested for apartment complexes with five or more units. The survey focused on areas in New Mexico that were outside of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and Santa Fe; those markets are covered extensively by CB Richard Ellis surveys. The questionnaire for this survey was the same as the one designed for the 2009 survey. The goal was to provide MFA with current market information for the organization's databases. Illustrated with charts and tables. Sample survey materials included in an appendix.
