DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton city officials showed off the first of many foreclosed homes they are working on remodeling and then putting on the market.

Crews opened 11 Bradford Street in Dayton’s South Park Neighborhood on Thursday.

The once-foreclosed property was bought by the city’s development division a year ago.

Since then, construction teams gave the home a facelift, an all new interior and energy-star appliances.

“This home is perfect for any professional or professional couple that works downtown, or at the hospital or at the university. It’s close enough you can walk to any of those. You can walk to Brown Street to grab a bite to eat, you can walk to the Oregon District, or you could walk to work,” said Steve Nutt from the Citywide Development Corporation.

11 Bradford Street is now listed for $99,000. It’s just one of several the city hopes to rehab and re-sell, as part of a $25 million program, funded with stimulus money.
