We are going to make a trip soon to scout out the area around Jackson. We want a minimum of 15 (wooded) acres with a home around 2400 sq. ft. It would be great to have a pond or lake and we would like something that doesn't need lots of work. Our budget is $130,000 - $180,000.

It should be within 20 minutes of a Super Walmart and medical facilities. We are in our 70's and will eventually have a need for that. We definitely want 'secluded'. Does anyone have ideas of where we should start our search and know of a good Realtor who could show us around?

Check the Medina area, possibly Milan.

Thanks! That one is one our list - I wonder why it has been on the market so long? It really looks like something we would like.

Also, we will look into Hohenwald, Medina and Milan.

I sure do appreciate the quick responses.

Oh - one other thing I didn't mention - I really don't want a manufactured home. A basement would be a real plus also.

We will definitely do that ---- before we realized our property would be on the market for such a long time, we contacted several Realtors. Most never got back to us, probably because we mentioned we hadn't sold our property yet. One in particular sent us a list of pretty much everything in the MLS in our price range. (over 100 listings!) He paid absolutely no attention to our desires (acreage, etc.) just took the easy way.

That one definitely won't be considered.

Would I have to contact separate Realtors in several areas such as Jackson, Hohenwald, Medina, etc.? BTW, we will be making a trip (from NW Illinois) in a camper with two labs so recommendations for campsite near any of these areas would be appreciated.

No, not really....... One Realtor can search all area's that you are interested in.
I't free unless you decide to buy.... Their money comes from sales/commission.
