Croatian town offers houses for less than a dollar

This Croatian town is selling houses for $0.16

Legrad is hoping to attract new residents

after suffering a steady population decline over the last century

The municipality is also offering around $4,000 towards refurbishments

The catch?

You must:

- Be under 40

- Be financially solvent

- Stay for at least 15 years

(SOUNDBITE) HOMEOWNER, DANIJEL HERMNICAR, SAYING:

"We liked the house, so we applied. We were living in a rented apartment, we paid the utilities, but this is ours now. // In the papers it says 15 years minimum but that is not a problem at all. The house is built and we don't have any plans to move or sell the house."
