ALBUQEURQUE (KRQE) - The Mesa del Sol development south of the Albuquerque Sunport is expanding its homebuyer incentives to workers at nearby large employers.
Eighty homes have been built in the first phase of residential construction and work is about to start on a hundred more.
Earlier this month, in an effort to spur sales, Mesa del Sol offered a $5,000 incentive to University of New Mexico employees who buy houses there.
The incentive can be used for things like appliances, blinds and backyard landscaping.
Now that offer is being expanded to employees of Sandia National Laboratories and Kirtland Air Force Base.
"The fact that they are our neighbors and we really want to promote the fact that we're nearby and we're close to Kirtland, Sandia and UNM," said David Newell, the project's residential development director.
The master plan calls for building 40-thousand homes at Mesa del Sol over the next 50 years.
Some brazen thieves made off with a man's prized possession, and now the victim is hoping for some holiday justice. Little did the suspects' know, their entire crime was caught on camera.
