Over the years we have seen a lot of desperation and desperation when the subject of the city of Detroit is mentioned. Then came Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas. You couldn’t find two people less likely to take on this project of buying run-down homes in run-down Detroit neighborhoods, fixing them up almost like new, then reselling them for an affordable price, but also for a profit .

Thomas is a physicist with a doctorate, and a carpenter and builder; Bynum holds an MBA and is a designer. At fourteen, he created his first company. Four years ago, the two lived in Colorado, but why not move to Motown? Now their HGTV series, “Bargain Block” is back for another season, but more importantly, they’re making a difference, making homeownership possible for some people who might not be able to afford it. a house, and since they made twenty-two so far, maybe bring quarters back.

If you look west, there’s a ton of gentrification going on in Chicago, but Detroit isn’t up to it yet. But with Bynum and Thomas, maybe it gives a boost.

From a television production perspective, most of these shows follow a script and a formula, and you can’t forget their real estate partner, Shea Hicks-Whitfield, who is a cheerleader in town. In the end, just like the Lions, maybe this sleeping giant rises like a phoenix.

HGTV says Wednesday, June 8 will bring new episodes and premiere at 8 p.m. ET is a throwback to their first season. And if the show is new to you, this is a good place to start.
