The Italian village of Cinquefrondi calls itself A COVID FREE VILLAGE. There haven't been any confirmed virus cases reported there and the region has one of the country's lowest overall levels of Coronavirus.
Now the village wants to attract new residents by selling homes for just $1! However there is a catch. The new owners must promise to renovate the houses.
The Mayor Michele Conia says her "Operation Beauty" initiative is designed to attract new residents willing to renovate abandoned homes that have fallen into disrepair.
The program offers the houses for only $1, but the purchasers must pay an annual policy insurance fee of about $280 until renovations on the homes are complete. The new owners of the homes will be subject to a $22,470 fine if they do not complete renovations within three years. Interested?
