Get you a Beaumont, Texas newspaper or a Jasper, TX can find Mobile Homes on 2 to 10 acres on the outskirts and around small burgs and villes from 15 to 45 thousand bucks, and I'm sure some would be owner finance...We got 25 acres with 2 homes(one is 1950+sq.ft. all brick with hardwood floors and knotty pine interior walls thruout), pond, 3 outbuildings, a well, a tractor, a shop full of woodworking tools and machinery, and more for only $125, Oregon where I grew up the same place near work, and the woods, would be about $1,000,000.00 ....SAME GOES FOR MONTANA AND NORTHERN IDAHO AND NORTHEAST WASHINGTON STATE, SD, ND, AND MEXICO(IF YOU SPEAK THE LINGO) One of my buddies lives in Oregon, but buys property in Mexico dirt cheap and builds a bunch of houses on it.

Shawn, why not do what everybody used to? They'd just find a spot they liked and go talk to the (usually old folks) who owned it. One of my sons recently got 5 acres (his favorite parking place along the river) from an old guy who owns the 40, he put up a polebarn and makes payments when he can. This summer he wants to insulate the place and put in basic plumbing. Oh, be careful about size - some counties won't let you buy under like 2 1/2 acres without subdividing, but outfits like HUD might consider that a farm & too big for a homesite. Watch those things ... :)
