I want to buy a tiny house or cottage or trailer on a piece of land for
$ 10.000 or 1-2 acres for $ 2000 in or outside a little town. I need no
basement, no garage but electicity and water and Internet access. I can
move to any state or town in the western USA.
I called a few real estate guys but it seems they just want to sell me
their most expensive stuff. I looked at some websites but found mainly
expensive houses in larger towns.
If you are looking for a trailer cheap try to find one which is in poor
shape. Often people have to pay to remove them from their land! Spend
an entire day calling mobile home parks near where you might be
interested in living and attempt to find something both cheap and
fixable. As for the land you might try looking at ebay. I don't have
as many answers for you there.

Real estate agents work on commission and $2000 sales are not worth their
time to make $60. Pick a town. Find out if they have a local "shopper
guide" newspaper and get a copy. It may have some ads selling what you
want, but you can place an ad cheap or even free in the "want to buy"
Biggest problem I see in internet access. Cheap land is often a distance
from town in less populated areas so it my be difficult getting DSL or Cable
at you place.
Not in the Wild, Wild, West, but there are quite a few low-priced
homes listed (realtor.com) in Rochester, NY. Perhaps the OP should
find an equivalent city (local economy turned to shite) in the
west, perhaps one with a large military base that?s been
You just have to get out and beat the bushes. Travel around. See what's
Five years ago, I bought 2.07 acres in Mojave County, Arizona for $600. It
has nothing. No water, electricity, just snakes and rocks. Development is
headed that way now, and I just refused $7,000 for it.
You can find such land in such areas, but you would have to travel around a
lot, get lucky, and find someone who wants to dump the land. All the old
farmers and locals are quickly becoming savvy now, and selling for higher
prices, but there are still lots and lots of good deals out there to be had.
You just have to get out and be able to travel and look around.
As stated, you will probably find something on the local bulletin board of
some small town, or in some small town newspaper or QuickQuarter Shopper
than advertised in a newspaper or in a MLS system.

Real Estate Agents make a percentage of the final price, so they tend
to direct people to higher priced homes/land. I would guess narrowing
down the area you want to move to, and then start there. You might
find a big farm that will be wiling to sell you a small part.
Just a guess....
