I agree with LVNRRT. Prices for land in Texas are very reasonable if you don't mind a bit of commute to work. Texas is a HUGE state so we got used to long drives there...LOL!
Now we live in Washington state, but before we left, my hubby was considering a big chunk of land southwest of Fort Worth... just for the remoteness/quiet. Its much prettier down towards Hill Country however, more trees, hills, greenery.
My sister just moved to Houston which is VERY expensive in the city limits. If one doesn't mind a looong commute, very pretty property is available north several hours, for quite reasonable prices.
I could see myself living out there and doing agency work out of Houston.
