    Patricia,
    I have lived in Peirce County most of my life and I can tell you that the home and land prices here are out of sight. The only kind of home you will find on land in that price range is a older single wide and even at that it won't be much more than an acre and the land will be very far out close to Mt. Rainier and Eatonville not too many hospitals of any size out there for job prospects (I am also and RN :) . I reccomend that you look in Mason County or even further south down by Longview or Kelso. The property is much more affordable and there are jobs available in the smaller hospitals. Try looking at this website to see what's available in the whole state. Please feel free to pm me if you have any questions. Theresa.

    I live in Mason County - property values are going up fast! I got in last year and got lucky - 4.5 acres with 1100 sq ft house and old barn for 150,000. Right now any properties with acreage are selling withing days of being listed - I am looking for friends. PM if you would like a good realtor contact in Mason county - he is keeping his eye out for several people right now.

    Patricia, I know of some good 5-acre lots along the Cowlitz in Packwood that are going for about $50K. Don't know if that's in Pierce County proper, but it's certainly within commuting distance from Tacoma. Let me know if you'd like more info.
