Our home will be 100 years old in 2020. I have enjoyed every minute of the sometimes frustrating renovations and upkeep I have performed on the property.

Still, the prospect of building a home from scratch, designed specifically for the plot of land it will sit on, is appealing. Folks looking to do just that can do so for a steal.

In an effort to revitalize certain neighborhoods, The City of Rock Island is selling plots of land for just $5.

According to a local report, there is a catch to the plan - buyers must build a home on the plot within six months of purchase, and must live in the residence for at least five years.

Still, a plot of land for $5 is a heck of a deal.
