Village houses and property in rural Bulgaria can often be bought for as little as $1,000. Get ‘em before Bulgaria joins the EU in 2007! I have NO commercial interest here; I just wanted to alert Cool Tool readers what types of places they can get for minimal money.
BTW, at the lower price spectrum, expect no indoor plumbing. These fixer-uppers are only for DIY ‘homesteaders’ at this point. But as an example, we now own 2 very livable houses and approximately 1.5 acres of land (with vineyard and orchard) which we bought for around $1,600 — for all!
