Open house attracts potential buyers to renovated home in Youngstown

News

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Rocky Ridge Neighborhood Association held an open house Wednesday to showcase a renovated home it’s hoping to sell.

It used a Youngstown tradition to draw in potential buyers: the cookie table.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation acquired the property on S. Hazelwood Avenue, and residents in the neighborhood put in the work to fix it up.

“We work with the neighborhood and other strategic partners to identify priority properties in each neighborhood that need some investment,” said Tiffany Sokol from YNDC.

The house is for sale for $50,000 and is located next to a community garden. The neighborhood association has plans to renovate two more homes this year.
