Cheap Land In New Mexico – Build Your Dream Ranch with Power, Paved Access, and No Restrictions
The indelible spirit of the visionary, frontier-tough, and independent rancher is embedded in the soil of properties like these. With access to power, a paved highway, and no restrictions to hold you back, you have all the tools to carve out whatever life you choose. This piece of land reaffirms the meaning behind the “Land of the Free”!
PROPERTY: This 33 acre square-shaped piece offers 1320 feet on HWY 458, a very well-maintained paved road. The fertile ground here and quick access to a major road makes it perfect for agriculture uses like raising livestock or even growing peanuts (yes, this is Peanut Country!). You don’t have to confine yourself to any preconceived notions about what this land can do for you though, because there are NO RESTRICTIONS! It lies just about 35 minutes from the clean, active city of Portales, NM. There are no structures on site, so you can build your ranch exactly how you always dreamt it.

PORTALES, One of America’s Top 20 Small Cities: Portales is only about 35 mins away and offers all the shopping you need to satisfy your daily and monthly demands, such as a Walmart, Autozone, Family Dollar, Aaron’s Furniture, and several different fine dining and fast food restaurants. It’s also home to the well-respected and accredited Eastern New Mexico University, which is actually the 3rd largest university in the state. This area, thanks in large part to the massive, multi-state Ogallala Aquifer, is rich agriculturally and well known for its peanut and dairy production. In fact, it’s the nation’s largest producer of certified organic peanut butter. For entertainment, look no further than the historically significant and recently renovated Yam Theater. Most impressively, of the nation’s 577 micropolitan areas studied by Bizjournal, Portales ranked in the Top 20. Researchers cited Portales’s strong income per capita, short commuting times, low taxes, and highly educated populace as the primary characteristics that factored into its elite ranking.
Just north of Portales is the famous Blackwater Draw, a landmark archaeological site where the oldest North American human tools were unearthed in 1929 and have been dated to about 13,500 years ago. The museum, hosted by Eastern New Mexico University, offers a wealth of exhibits and information about the earliest known human settlers on the continent.
Cannon Air Force base, established during World War II in 1942, is also located near Portales and, given its population of about 2,250, it’s a major contributor and stabilizer to the local economy.

Lubbock, Texas (population 258K) is about 90 minutes to the east and lies in the center of the Texas High Plains. It’s considered the “Napa Valley of Texas” since 80% of the state’s wine grapes are grown in this region. Lubbock is an electric college town too, as the loyalty to the Texas Tech Red Raiders runs deep here. The 90-minute drive on Saturday mornings to revel in the pageantry of college football and watch the Red Raiders wage battle on the gridiron is well worth the investment. Children and adults alike love the FiberMax Center for Discovery, an interactive museum featuring hundreds of agricultural exhibits, and the Science Spectrum and Omnitheater, a more diverse, interactive experience that will fascinate the inquisitively-minded. Ride some roller coasters at the Joyland Amusement Park or follow in the same footsteps as the continents first inhabitants at Lubbock Lake Landmark, a network of ancient wildlife exhibits and trails. When it’s time to retreat to more adult, pastoral surroundings, check out the award-winning Llano Estacado winery, the centerpiece of this fertile wine region.
Or head west from your ranch towards Roswell (population 48K), also about 90 mins away. Situated at the confluence of three rivers–the Spring, the Hondo, the Pecos– it was established in 1870. Visitors to the city will find a plethora of cultural activities. Spring River Park and Zoo is home to native animals and an antique carousel. The Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art shows work from the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program. By contrast, the Roswell Museum & Art Center focuses on southwestern art. Of course, no visit to Roswell would be complete without checking out the International UFO Museum and Research Center, which draws its origins from the famous “Roswell UFO Incident” of 1947.

WALKING THE PROPERTY LINES w/YOUR PHONE: We highly recommend a FREE app called BaseMap, which uses your phone’s GPS system to show you property boundary lines, and allow you to walk them in real-time. You can follow THIS LINK to see the center of the lot on BaseMap (you’ll need to have the app to open the link).

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
