She already owns her own house, having purchased it after saving $6,000

A tough turn in the economy meant the home dropped from nearly $100,000 to $12,000 after negotiations when she was only 14 years old, as her parents pitched in the other half of the price.

She immediately went to work upgrading her home

She was gifted $10,000 from Ellen Degeneres to help with upgrades to the home as she was hugely impressed with Willow's budgeting and ambition.

She made HUGE cosmetic improvements to the inside and outside of the home

The before and after of the cabinets are impressive, and you may want to know she has bought her 2nd home now as a 15 year old.

She rented out the original house in order to earn more money

As mentioned, she parlayed that cash into a second home on a short sale for a mere $17,500, and she is well on her way to a home-flipping empire!
