BUYING LAND ON BIG ISLAND FOR A BUDGET:
To purchase land CHEAP on Hawaii Island you will probably have to purchase in high Lava Zones...HOWEVER...if you have a MOBILE CONTAINER HOME you can move it anytime and still get Insurance in such zones as long as it's Mobile so this is seriously something to consider...if Lava is coming...ROLL IT OUT...if the Threat is gone...ROLL IT BACK IN.
