Yowbarb Note: RE "Cheapest Places to Buy Land in Every State" from MSN Money.

I just now saw this article. Haven't checked out each location mentioned. Since this is about price not necessarily survival location value, each situation needs to be evaluated by the buyer. Next post here will list out the 48 locations, but it's all in the article.
Link below:
http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/realestate/cheapest-places-to-buy-land-in-every-state/ar-BBnxHW2?ocid=spartanntp#page=1

With home prices reaching record highs, many people believe the real estate market is at its peak. According to the Fiscal Times, it’s a seller’s market and most buyers want turnkey properties with homes already built. Despite this trend, for the adventurous few looking to buy land and build their dream homes or country ranch residences, affordable options still exist.

Buying undeveloped land comes with many advantages. Empty land usually does not cost as much as an improved lot. Additionally, it provides maximum creative flexibility — stay within your jurisdiction’s zoning codes, and you can build whatever you want. Perhaps most importantly, though, is the fact that vacant lots can often be better long-term investments.

Note: Nebraska and Vermont were not included in this list due to insufficient data.

The experts at FindTheHome used county public records to look at the sales of vacant lots since the beginning of 2014. Using this data, they averaged the lot size, sale price, and price per square foot of every vacant lot transaction in each county and found the counties with the cheapest land in each state.

Many people will be looking forward to your posting the 48 locations.  The "vacant lots" terminology evokes the feeling of a vacant city lot, but maybe it includes both city and rural.    In many of the more undeveloped areas in the U.S., far from large cities, there are "lots" that range from an acre or so, to upwards of a thousand  acres or more.

Drat.  Tried to find the post from Steedy about the new property and I must be looking right at it and not seeing it.  So will post this relevant item here:

In the May/June 2014 Countryside, Vol. 98, Number 3, page 32 article, titled When In Rome, writer Ben Hoffman tells how the locals in a given area have reasons for doing things the way they do, and how it might be a good idea to consult them, as they know the terrain, weather patterns, climate, geology and geography of the area in which they live.

Anyway, this all ties in with Steedy and the newly acquired property.  In addition, I recall a specific anecdote in one of Scott and Helen Nearing's books, in which they ignored what all the locals told them, when they, new to the area, decided to build a little bridge or something similar across a driveway culvert, or similar situation.  ( I can see it in my mind.)  Anyway, the locals, upon seeing their beginning work, told them, that it will never work, as it will flood out completely in the next big rains.  But the Nearings, thinking their project looked so promising, continued on, and when finished, looked great and worked perfectly. 

That is, until the first big rains came along and completely washed out their new crossing.

Still, good luck, Steedy.

There are still some really good deals to be found here in PA.  This listing is just an example of a rural area in Dauphin County (same county as the state capital, Harrisburg, in Central PA).  Only 2 1/2 acres, but has a 2 BR farmhouse in livable condition for less than $50,000.

http://www.landsofpennsylvania.com/property/251-South-Crossroad-Lykens-Pennsylvania-17048/2718304

Over 5 acres with stream and 4 BR farmhouse, reasonable, asking $170,000

http://www.landsofpennsylvania.com/property/329-Kocker-Lane-Elizabethville-Pennsylvania-17023/2554060

And some other general PA listings, some very reasonable.

Wow, Enlightenme I just saw your post. Thank you!
PA would be my #1 choice if I can avoid the fracking areas. As long as it has elevation and provided we can get that far north...
Also: Thank you for this link I had not seen this site before!

Yowbarb Note: Sad fact of life. I open up one of the ads, first one. Land in Beech Creek, PA and wonder why the trees all look dead. Doesn't mean they are, just look that way. No way for me to guess the extent of any possible damage. So then I entered into google search: Fracking Beech Creek, PA and here is what came up. 6 wells, 10 violations. That doesn't necessarily mean that tract is unusable. It does mean, look out.
Fracking has wrecked many a good plot of land probably. I wish I actually knew more!! Anyway, the last link below lists the Municipalities with shale wells. Posting this in Fracking topic as well. Oh baaad pun. PLS Note: orange dots= Violations reported

PS Again, Enlightenme, thanks for the link of PA land!

Enlightenme's link:

http://www.landsofpennsylvania.com/property/Sugar-Camp-Road-Beech-Creek-Pennsylvania-16841/2929500 

I am looking at it.
One main area I am interested in does not have fracking wells too terribly close... :)
I hope it stays that way.

Barb..Hmm, that wasn't one of the links I posted (I don't think so anyway), and be careful with a lot of those areas, they are private developments with yearly dues, home association rules and regs, etc.  I think if you look more so in the Dauphin County and surrounding areas in central PA, you won't find much fracking.

Oh! Enlightenme, that was just a link within the site you posted...
I plugged in Centre county and a page of links popped up; it is part of that site. No complaints here. :) I very much appreciate that site you posted.
What you posted links back to this: [ lands of Pennsylvania.com http://www.landsofpennsylvania.com/ ]
Thanks for the tip on Dauphin county...looking in Centre county to the east of fracking but will definitely look at Dauphin too. :)

PS The area I was considering has fracking to the west of it, not too close. (IMHO not too close.)
