Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

During the week of Feb. 8 through Feb. 12, 48 properties changed hands and of those two home sold for less than $10,000.

After doing a little digging, here’s what we found out about them.

Kenosha-based R&N Investments and Holdings LLC, owner of 1012-14 Davis Place, sold the property to Kenosha-based RSB Real Estate LLC for $2,000. Built in 1914, the home had been on the market for $47,456, according to Realtor.com.

The multi-family home was the scene of a murder in 1992 where 37-year-old Lula Blair was killed. Thirteen gang members were indicted in 2001 on racketeering and conspiracy charges, and one of those conspiracy charges was related to Blair’s murder, according to a story by the Journal Times.

The property located at 2514 Gilson St. sold for $7,000. The scene of a fire in July,  officials with the Racine Fire Department reported that the estimated damage to the home was $45,000 for the building. The home had been listed for $75,955, according to Realtor.com.
