The 15-Year-Old Who Bought Two Houses

Willow Tufano is a teenager in Florida. I did a story on her earlier this year, after she bought a house. She saved up money for a down payment by selling stuff people left behind in foreclosed homes.

I recently spoke with Willow again, and learned that a lot happened to her in the past few months. She bought another house. She became a little bit famous. And she started working on getting her own reality show.

For More: Read our recent post on what Willow has been up to.
