Celebrating Small Wins- New Purchase on the Block

In an effort to celebrate small wins, I have to happily report that one of the blighted homes surrounding mine was purchased last weekend. YAYYY! That actually makes 2 recent purchases of homes on our block. One home is currently being renovated and a different contractor plans to rehab the other.
