Looking for a change of scenery? A village is a utopian and picturesque of mountain in Switzerland sounds good, you’re in luck. The small village of Albinen, the impressive Canton of Valais, now offers juicy sums of money to families who are willing to move to their remote community, and you only have one question, what would you do?
Albinen is a village quiet and peaceful with spectacular alpine views, but according to the municipal president, Beat Jost, families and the young people are leaving in droves. The population has declined to a paltry number ‘240′, and the school of the village has even been closed, forcing the last 7 children of the community having to travel to another nearby city.
What, then, can make a small town in a rich country in times like these? Paying on the potential new residents, of course!
The initiative is designed to attract families and people under 45 years of age seeking to purchase or build a new home. Each adult will be offered something more than 25 thousand dollars for their time, and each child will have a value of about 10 thousand dollars approximately.
This means that a family composed by four members could obtain more than 70 thousand dollars in total, provided that your investment in a home is at least the$ 200,000. If you’re like Feodor Vassilyev, a peasant Russian who fathered 69 children with his first wife, you’ll get more than 700,000$.
