Bisaccia is a picturesque Italian town that is now selling houses for $1. If this sounds weird, you should know that this is not the first place to do the same. The whole point is to prevent dying communities and make people want to stay.
“We face a very particular situation here. The abandoned [area] spreads throughout the most ancient part of the village. Forsaken houses are clustered together, one next to the other along the same roads. Some even share a common entrance,” Francesco Tartaglia, deputy mayor, told CNN Travel.
Bisaccia is located in the Campania region of Italy and counts a population of around 3,000 people. According to the statement, everyone is welcomed, especially families who want to move and stay there.
A house in this town, however, won’t come without a price. The investment that you’ll make comes with a contract—you will have to commit to renovating the place, but there is no assigned budget or a time frame when the renovations need to be done.
Most of the places that are offered need to be renovated completely, and this should not be just your vacation home. If this sounds like a good opportunity, better hurry up to find your perfect spot.
