Texas, I'll have to look at that. A guy I work with just inherited a third of his folks' home down there, then bought the other two thirds from his siblings. He intends to rent out the place until he retires and then move down there. I can't remember the town he said it's at but it's a 3 BR with decent square footage and a separate shop (apparently secure enough that he's keeping a couple of his Harleys in it with nobody living there) on an acre, and he swears the place's value is only a hundred grand.
I have a very small 3 BR basic home on a small panhandle lot with no extras and I could sell it for way more than that any day of the week. I bought the place at the bottom of the market almost 20 years ago and I'm ashamed to say what I paid so I won't. It has been a decent affordable roof over my head, and though it's in a very blue town in a somewhat blue state, I can keep all of the black guns I want.
I hope in 20 years it will be my ticket to a nice, warm red state where it's cheap to live. If that doesn't work out plan B is a coach touring WalMart parking lots with maybe a home base in Bullhead City. I know for darn sure that when I can start collecting my rocking chair money I am taking my money and rocking chair as far away from Eugene as I can get.

If you are looking for cheap property then look no further than Truth or Consequences, NM. It's not the end of the world, but you CAN see it from there! Could be going up, though. WalMart is coming in and a space center is in the works not too far away near Las Cruces.
My crazy mother moved there with my crazier brother and bought a manufactured home with river frontage for around 70,000. Okay, so the river is not always exactly abundant and flowing, but it is NM, after all.
I used to like to sit naked in the hot tub and shoot at rats, but Portland has lost whatever humor and common sense it once had. I had to give up my little hobby.
I miss my guns.
