Affordable would be 20k for 3-5acres.. Or under 80k for a fixer upper

Thanks
Isn't that my dream?
Let me know if you find any good area. I am wondering if real estate taxes are slightly higher on the IL side?

But anyway, my ideal property would be about 100 acres with a natural pond and some good topography instead of total flatlands.

I know a female doctor in St.louis who sold her practice, quit her job and bought a nice size farm and imported a few llamas from South America to raise them with goats and chickens at her farm.

On average, property tax in IL is higher.

How about Iowa? But I guess that will be a little far out from St. Louis?

Thanks guys
Yes, I'd have to stick around St Louis or Kansas City. I was afraid that Kansas City would be flooded and tornado prone though. Could be wrong? Also, I like to visit both Tennessee the east coast, and so St Louis would be a hair closer.

Would Kansas City be worth a look though?

Honestly, I'd guess that KC would only be about as flood-prone and tornado prone as St. Louis is (maybe a little less for the former and a little more for the latter, but about the same overall combined risk). I doubt those things would be too much of a worry there.

You can also do Jefferson, Washington, St. Francis counties, as well as west of St. Louis. If you're just thinking access to shopping and medical, south St Louis county has shopping and a good hospital system. Probably get as far south as Farmington and still have decent access to St. Louis type shopping.

No real need to go to St. Louis city, except for maybe plays and ballgames.

Lol! Many people think that way. I'm glad I don't or else I would have never moved back here.

How Redneckish are these areas of West and South West MO? Are they hostile to foreigners?
