Let me link you a site to drool over with the houses and the prices.
This is an average home in our area, in a super good neighborhood and super good school district. And it has property.
Land out in the country is still around $2000 per acre, and a 40 acre tract one hour from here is only $150,000.00
BUT, this part of the nation is low cost of living, lower insurance, lower crime AND much lower paying jobs. We don't have industry, manufacturing or much more than large farms, retail shops, loads of medical facilities and the lawyers who thrive in that environment.
