Good grief. Try this idiot on for size:
A woman who bought THREE of Italy’s €1 houses has warned of the real price of renovating the bargain-priced properties.
Solar consultant and business owner, Rubia Daniels, took up the fantastic offer in Mussomeli, Sicily – but quickly realised that it would total a MASSIVE €60,000.
No doubt she thought that the houses were going to be in pristine Islington-style condition, and that she could just move in and start enjoying the bargain. (She bought the other two for her children, by the way.)
Of course, what she got for her $3.90 were three houses that were in a state of disrepair approaching write-off — hence the low price — in a dying village without, say, a Home Depot (US) or Homebase (UK) outlet anywhere nearby.
And frankly, even if the whole tripartite reno does cost €60,000 she’ll still have three houses that cost €20,001 each, in this place:
…which quite frankly looks like any shithole town in Sicily where even €1 is too much to pay.
