The results of the first stage of the House for 1 Euro program auction were announced at the end of 2021. The municipality has announced the list of lots, according to it the property for 1 euro was sold from 258 euros to 3,000 euros.
We would like to remind you that we are not an official website of the 1 euro house program, but we create useful material that describes life in Salemi and makes it easier to choose a house for 1 euro. To see which lots have been sold, you can use our map.

As for the further development of the program, the second round of sales is expected soon and the municipality of the city is actively pursuing this issue.
It is expected that the release of the entertainment series on the BBC will further fuel interest in 1 euro houses in Salemi and each lot must be carefully prepared.
List of houses:
Lots 1 ,2, 3
As we can see, the objects in the lots (1-a, 2-a, 3-a) were sold in the centre of historical Salemi to different buyers at prices ranging from 2500 to 3000 euros.
Prices of 11 euros and 500 euros were offered but they were not accepted. I must say that this is a very good place in the centre of Salemi. Nearby is a restaurant, supermarket, museums and major historical attractions, including the central square of Salemi. There are good roads in this area of the city and the delivery of building materials to the site should not cause difficulties. If you look at the map and the photo of the objects, it becomes clear that only walls remained from part of the buildings. This will require the right work of a geometer or architect, but owners have more freedom to create their dream home.
Lots 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
The objects of lot 4-а, 5-а, 6-а, 7-а, 8-а were sold at prices ranging from 1500 to 3000 euros. If you look at the photo, some houses look quite intact and will probably require less repair and restoration of the facade. But since the apartments are on the second floor, it may be necessary to intervene in the repair of the roof. On the other hand, an open terrace can be built on the roof, which will make it possible to have your own small garden or relaxation area.
The houses for these lots are located almost next to lots 1,2,3, so you can orient yourself to them on the map.
An interesting situation occurred with lot 5 – one of the participants did not attach an economic proposal to the application (probably meaning an approximate description of the repair costs and information about what is planned to be built there) and in connection with this, the municipality rejected the application.
Lots 24 and 25
Lot 24-a and 25-a can be viewed with the Google Street Viewer has gone up to 2500 euros. It is also the historical part of the city. Very close to the car park and the old church.
We recommend that you pay attention to the ruined houses in the area, as some of them open directly to green spaces, which implies the possibility of creating a green area for recreation.
Lot number 28-a is also interesting. The house is located on Via Vallonello, which is famous for its good views of the valleys of Sicily. The lot was sold for 1008 euros.
Lot 30-a is also located at this address and was sold for 258 euros. The area of this building was about 80 square meters. This is approximately three euros per square meter of the house.
Lot 36-a located in the street: Via Manfredo Cremona. This street lies a little further from the centre on the outskirts of the city, all the houses on it also have a beautiful view of the valley. The lot was sold for 1000 euros.
Have a good day! We will be grateful for your comments.
