I saw the perfect place for you a couple of days ago, alongside of an interstate, west of Miles City, MT (where Gus died on Lonesome Dove). 96 acres of grazing/ag land, $240K. What a deal (by CA standards at least)...

Wow, that's def. a deal by CA standards!
I can't even find under 1 acre for that price range unless it's inner city Sacramento which is the opposite of prep!

We are looking at about a 45minute drive in to town to get something in the 300k-400k range with 5-25 acres depending on slope.

You guys have it made in CA. Here in Jersey, property prices are insane.

Well, in Baside Queens (where I live) a 1300 sq ft semi-attached on a 25x100 goes in the Mid 400s and up

Let's put it this way, if you want to live somewhere "nice", the town, the property, the schools & the neighbors you won't get in the door with anything less than 400k. That's living on top of your neighbors, any acreage is gonna cost you extra.

Fairly common on semi attached houses - remember - your right on the property line on one side - the other house is a mirror of your's - the builder takes a 50x100 lot, and builds right on the middle - 1 "big" house - basiclly 2 small houses, with a concrete/cinder block fire wall down the middle

I lived in one foe 10 years - sold it in 2001 - for 395K!

Well, I miss-guessed how much the pices have increased on houses like my old 1300-1500 sq ft house

GASP - $600K for a house on a 2500 ft lot
