Times may never have been better for commoners eager to purchase a piece of nobility. In Hungary there are some 300 castles, mansions and country estates currently listed in the marketplace — many at prices far below those of most apartments found in European capitals.
In fact some are selling for as low as $20,000, according to the Hungarian financial daily Napi Gazdasag.
Buyers might want to buy several gallons of paint, a few rakes, and the services of a skilled worker or two.
Most of the castles for sale are in such a state of disrepair that the renovation and maintenance costs are likely to far exceed – often exponentially – the price of the property itself. New listing – Hungarian property for sale
