Anyone in the world of real estate can tell you that having one long standing empty property on a street brings the value of the entire block down. Multiply that by many streets in a neighborhood and a city and that is much bigger issue to contend with.
On the new HGTV series, Bargain Block, the audience follows Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas as they bring Detroit back to life by buying run down homes, renovating them, and then selling at an affordable price.
Though the format is standard for this channel and this genre, I like that Keith and Evan are giving back to the community instead of just running a business.
Do I recommend it? Yes.
Bargain Block airs on HGTV on Wednesdays at 9PM.
