Anyone familiar with real estate near Maxwell afb

So I will be pcsing to Alabama in May. I have been looking for some property up there for a few months now with not much luck. I told my realtor I would happily purchase early if I found something that is number A. Good deal, number B. Near perfect home criteria wise, or number C a mix of both.

Now a few have come up with the most recent being 45 minutes west of Gunther annex. Middle of nowhere, and the asking was 380k. It was a perfect home besides the distance and price. It was 2200sf with 2 acres a large shed or barn and a pool.

My general experience and understanding is the further away from the city the more of a bargain you get. Proximity is often a premium for pricing.

Another home is under contract for 370k it was 20 minutes away, 6 acres, 3300sf. Based off the pictures it would be considered a higher quality home and the land was substantially nicer and included a large pond (like you could put a small skiff in it and float around”

I really feel the price of the first property should be closer to 300 and the second 340. But my realtor seems to think I’m just silly. The one for 380 had 20k in land with it, 30k in workshops, 15k pool and a 200k house, add in some covidflation and thst is 300k.

Are folks really wanting to get 45 minutes out of the city that they are paying thst much more then proximity? The second property was near 15 miles from any sorts of industry.

Tldr: why house no cheap
