Quiet, very very quiet.  

A roof.

Some walls.

A floor plan that supports our living.

Dog friendly neighborhood (people and ability to go very long walks on trails in woods without getting in the car) and dog friendly back yard (for the 2 minutes a day they are back there)

Well, I must admit it; none of my search criterion is a "must have", since even if I was thrown in prison with no windows and concrete floor and steel commode and steel bed with no storage, it would not cause me to "die".

But in terms of priorities?
1) Temperature between 40°F and 110°F year round, all hours, with the average being close to 75°F during the day, year round.  I really can't adjust easily to cold weather nor extreme heat.  And I prefer to do no heating nor cooling.  (I don't heat nor cool now).

2) Lots of trees; and not just evergreens.

3) Clean drinking water piped in.

4) Working sewer system, and electricity and natural gas brought in.

5) Natural water feature on site, preferably a river or lake.

6) within 30 minutes of shopping and health care

7) Internet connection available.

8) preferably 1/2 a mile from nearest neighbors

9) < 30 dB ambient noise level

10) No overhead power lines

11) 2 story, 2000+ sqft.

12) Lots of storage space

13) 2 car garage or larger

14) Workshop

15) 640 acres

16) < $150k

16) Reasonable modes of transportation in and out of the area.

17) no Nukes, radiation, or other environmental hazards.

Low price, big acreage. 20 acres minimum and 40+ is much better. Having a floorplan that is easy to get around in and allows single story living even if the house is 3 stories tall.

Higher interest rates sound better to me. Those create lower prices after all.

I really appreciate a good floorplan since most other things can be changed to suit individual taste. If the floorplan is bad, it can get expensive quickly. My favorite didn't know I "must have" is a laundry chute. In a two story house with bedrooms upstairs, I use the heck out of it.
