I got a 10 acre woodland lot in vermont for 22,000 which I love. It's on a mountainside but gently sloping. sugar maples and southern exposure. Trees are perfect size for building and its on a dirt road. Cant hear highways and the air is so clean. If you buy something far out there it will cost less money because it has less value to the idea of mainstream society but the bonus is that you get something totally pristine and away from pollution. So best of both sides, as long as you don't mind being a way out there is a great way to go about looking for a property. You can find even less expensive land. I like to have little debt on my land so I need less money and can put more time into my own land.
