A homeowner at 14 years old? Meet Willow Tufano

When the housing market went belly up in South Florida, some turned the crisis into an opportunity.

In January of this year, Willow Tufano became a homeowner.

She spotted a great bargain in Port Charlotte, which could easily be described as a fixer-upper. It was headed for foreclosure and on the market for just $12,000. Willow purchased the home, along with her mom.

But guess what? Willow Tufano is just 14 years old!

This morning on "Early Start," Willow and her mom Shannon Moore talk about how Willow was able to buy the house. Watch the full interview below.
