Potential buyers would have to live in the home, which will go on the market for $199,000.
In addition to getting a first look at the house, attendees at the virtual event can learn the ins and outs of the home buying process and can ask questions about capital and lending.
Butler is cohosting the virtual unveiling with EXIT Strategy Realtor Cassandra Sneed. There’s still time to register. Englewood residents will be given first priority.
That Sunday’s event falls on the second day of Kwanzaa, Kujichagulia, is apropos, added Butler, as it took two years of grit and self-determination to complete the project.

Butler and Lucas originally bought the property from the Cook County Land Bank for $10,000. Renovations cost about $140,000.
