Girl, 14, buys house in Florida for 12,000
Willow Tufano was just an ordinary teenage girl until she decided to make a decision that would forever change the way people look at her. When she was just 12 she started to walk around to different garage sales and buy different items she thought that she could sell for a profit. However, this was just the beginning, until she discovered Craigslist where should would repeat the process.
Willow’s mom was a real estate agent at the time that of this event so she helped Willow make this purchase. The original cost of the house was 100,000 dollars but due to the market of housing dropping tremendously the retail price was brought down to 16,000. However, this wasn’t low enough of a price for Willow who bargained the price down to 12,000 dollars. She then asked her mom if she would pay for half the house. Her mom agreed and soon after the house was Willows, and Willow was a landowner. Soon after the purchase of this house she then fixed up the kitchen and made some minor improvements to the house. Now she rents the house for 700 dollars a month.
This all became a reality when she started to save up her money for no specific reason. She just thought that it would be a good idea to save the money instead of spending it right away. Ellen said, “I wish I was as smart as you are when I was younger, I always just spent my money right when I earned it.”
