Land for $ 1? This is what the small municipality of Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci (1,200 inhabitants), located on Route 125 North near Saint-Donat, is offering to attract young families to its home.
Notre-Dame is not sparse. The proposed lands are approximately 40,000 square feet and represent an approximate value of $ 14,500. They are located in the urban perimeter, near the school, the library, the parks, the beach and the fire station.
Note: thanks to the partnership with the Caisse populaire Desjardins, the value of the land can be used as a down payment on a possible mortgage application.
The Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci development society aims more particularly to increase the population of children at the village school. Priority is thus given to families with children of preschool or primary school age or to young couples wanting to live in an environment close to nature.
The new owners will have to build in the following year the purchase of the land, become permanent residents for at least three consecutive years.
Given the precariousness of employment in the region, being self-employed or at home would be a personal advantage, we note. Similarly, wanting to set up a home daycare would be an asset.
