Regardless of weather, terrain, etc.

I'm talking about 1,000 acres that I would own. Not deeded, not BLM, not conservation land, but 100% owned by me, myself, and I.

I've been on some websites and when I see something that interest me. I realize it was a sales pitch to get me interested then I continue reading and it says most of it is BLM land or whatever.

So I thought someone here would know.
So in all 50 states (if you want to narrow it down by county that is fine too), which state can I realistically own 1,000 acres NOT over a purchase price of $700K.
Thank you.

Maine, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and many more
At $700 an acre you won't be getting the best land and most probably it is going to be deeded, how are you intending to prove ownership without some kind of deed or title?

Alaska, Arizona and the Dakotas also come to mind. You may need an airplane to get your parcel but what can you do?

To tell you the truth, you might reconsider the conservation requirement because depending on how you plan to use the land (I take it you aren't going to be farming or ranching) there may be some pretty lucrative incentives that may not necessarily restrict you from doing everything you intend on doing with the land.

Go out to Eastern Oregon out in the sagebrush country and you can find land for pretty cheap. Not much out there if you head towards the SE corner near the borders with Nevada and Idaho--but land is a bargain out there and your only companions will be the rattlesnakes and antelope.

rattlesnakes! oh goodness. I hope they don't that much of a dangerous nuisance.


Also:

What do you think of this?

It should be noted that I do not mind cold bitter winters. Nothing a week in South Florida can't remedy.

What does 'not deeded' mean?

New Mexico and Maine first came to mind.

Rural Northeastern Minnesota may be one place, but the problem once you get far out enough, the land is extensively owned by the federal and state governments, usually for the benefit of the public and for resource management. I feel this is a good thing, since it ensures public access to rural land in the absence of laws forbidding rural property owners to deny strangers entrance to their land.
