Farmington Homes for Sale and Real Estate

Area Description

Farmington, the heart of the Four Corners, is far-removed from the hustle and bustle and offers an unparalleled glimpse into the treasures of the Land of Enchantment. Nestled between the San Juan, Animas and La Plata rivers and surrounded by world-class cultural gems and magnificent landscapes, Farmington is the commercial center of the Four Corners. The population more than doubles on weekends as shoppers from the Navajo Nation and other nearby areas come into town.

With an average of 273 sunny days per year, outdoor activities can be enjoyed year-round and are abundant. Farmington is the largest city in San Juan County. A landscape of rolling plateaus, mesas and mountains gives Farmington a frontier town backdrop. With Utah and Colorado’s world-renowned national parks only a few hours away, the snow-capped peaks of Colorado an hour north and the Grand Canyon fewer than five hours to the west, it’s the perfect place to live and enjoy outdoor recreation and travel.
