My kid brother lives in a small town in that remote portion of North Dakota known as Saskatchewan. He owns the first property outside town on the main road, and the property next to him came up for sale about 2 years ago. It shares his driveway. The asking price, with a 2 year old roof, wiring, and plumbing, including appliances less than 5 years old and a 2 year old lawn tractor was $5000 Canadian. He said he just KNEW what kind of neighbours he'd get for $5000, so he bought it. The seller had not managed to sell his late seventies Lincoln Town Car by the time he left town, so he signed it over as part of the deal.
Perfectly liveable little house, with no plumbing or electrical issues, and a good roof. You need to truck in your water, and pump out the sewage (no town sewers, and no weeping beds allowed - and gawdawful water - but only $5K A few miles up the road, where you CAN put in a septic tank, and the water is still terrible, the property would have been worth about 4X as much. Get up into Yorkton it would be about $60,000 - $120,000. 30 km south in Mellvile, about $35000
