One question: What do you want it for, investment, renovation, to live, holidays, skiing, trips to Greece ?
50km from the border takes you just up to around Bansko and there is lots of villages/properties in that area. Closer to Bansko the village properties are about €25k, go south to the border and they drop dramatically to under €5k depending on what you want.
There are however lots of little villages that are higly advertised like Obidim, which are cheap, close to Bansko and the Greek border but in winter they are so high up that you would need a skidoo.
Let us know a bit more about why basically and we can advise further.

Then focus on about three villages, rent in one of them, until you figure out what property is either empty or the owners want to move to the city and make an offer.
But it all depends on what you want to spend your days and especially your winters doing. Village life can be maddening if you don't have an interest that you can spend your time doing.
I haven't find many properties worth having at the cheap prices that are being mentioned here, you would have to have excellent contacts to find anything livable at those prices. This area is far more expensive than the center or north of Bulgaria.

1: Blagoevgrad down to Sandanski
1: Sandanski across to Gotche Delchev
2: Gotche Delchev across to Pamporovo
3: Pamporovo across to Bansko
These has some of the most stunning scenery in the whole of BG, mountains, forests, small villages dotted all around and still cheap.
We did the drive over a week and stopped at EVERY single village en-route and rated each one, eventually buying and building in one which turned out to be a lovely village on the Rila mountain.
I will say, there was a lot of villages that I was happier to see in my rear view mirror
