YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A home at 1543 Canfield Road is getting a new chance at life.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) displayed its latest fixer-upper on Wednesday. It is now for sale after the agency completely gutted and upgraded the home.

The organization began work on the property after it was foreclosed and seized by Talmer Bank.

“It was essentially in despair,” said Mark Wenick, president of the Mahoning Valley region of Talmer Bank.

Workers painted the inside and outside of the house. The kitchen is now almost unrecognizable, and the rooms received new flooring and windows.

A newly-paved driveway leads to a recently-built garage. The Youngstown home also got new plumbing and wiring.

“It’s incredible,” Wenick said. “We’ve been here before, looked at before pictures and now looking at it after, it’s an incredible transformation.”

The house is listed on the market for $70,000, and the bank says it already has interested buyers.

“My understanding is there are pending offers, so again, that’s very exciting,” Wenick said.

Beniston said he anticipates getting a buyer within the next couple of weeks.

YNDC says it has eight vacant homes that workers are in the process of rehabbing and around 35 occupied homes that they’re fixing up.
