A Chicago suburb could not get anyone to fork over $1 for a home, the Belleville News-Democrat reported.

The village of Barrington, Illinois put three older homes up for sale for just $1 each, but was not able to get any interested buyers.

The suburb hopes to sell and relocate the homes in order to make way for redevelopment in the downtown area, according to the paper.

If no buyers come forward, the village will demolish the houses, which many residents say hold an historic value.

Since not one person bid on the homes, the bid process will start over within the next 30 days, the paper reported.
