Property Description

Remember the Gooden Rule of Real Estate: Location, Location, Location. 1400 Tent Street is one of the most visible locations of any property in Alamogordo. Add to that its remarkable customer-convenience by being placed in the geographical center of the city! See aerial photo. The attributes of this corner business location at the signalized intersection of Tenth Street at Washington Avenue are what every business owner dreams of. Plus, it is across the street from medical offices, Alamogordo’s Public Library, and only one block from Albertson’s Supermarket and Starbucks!

This corner property was previously a convenience store with car wash and lube shop. The underground fuel tanks in use were removed in 2016 and soil samples were taken from under each tank. One fuel tank remains, which was filled with concrete per regulations when it was taken out of use many years ago. See the “Comfort Letter” from the New Mexico Environmental Department, providing assurance to future owners.

A great business location is much better than an expensive advertising program! This location will offer any business outstanding exposure to Alamogordo’s customers and clients. Restaurant, insurance, retail, used car sales, electronics, real estate brokerage, package store, medical, dental or optical office.
