On another thread of mine ( https://www.city-data.com/forum/gene...st-buying.html ) several people mentioned some of the counties belonging to this sub forum as being fairly affordable/ideal for buying large plots of land for the purpose of off the grid living , which is why I'm starting up this thread to hopefully gain some further insight .

Now personally moving to MD would be my very last choice , as it would make my commute all the much harder , but in the spirit of keeping an open mind I'm curious to find out as much as possible regarding the possibilities of such a choice based on the opinions of actual area residents .



In short is it really true that one can find ( largely at least ) undeveloped lots for sale in that area in the 100 to 200k range ? If so then how lax do local zoning laws/enforcement of said laws tend to be with respect to issues such as setting up a mobile home/building your own house on said pieces of lots tend to be ?

Also do noise related ordinances tend to be more on lax or strict side as far as their existence/enforcement goes ? I'm asking because living on a plot of land where I can blast my music/shoot off my guns in peace is a rather important quality of life issue for me .

Well, color me surprised, at least for Prince George's County: https://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sal...oom%22%3A12%7D

However, Prince George's is pretty restrictive in terms of zoning, etc.

I don't know about pricing, but Nanjemoy (Charles County) has some off-grid areas and it's pretty much off the beaten path.
