The city of Oklahoma City is in the process of revitalizing neighborhoods, one house at a time.

It bought 72 foreclosed homes with federal dollars. The homes are rehabbed and sold to families on limited incomes.

The couple who bought one of the homes never dreamed they could be homeowners.

"This house is just like buying a brand new one," said Lola Cresente, new homeowner. "It's been redone from the ground up, so that's something that's a blessing you don't see very often."

The program is through the city's neighborhood housing services.
