Home market moves upward

A Greenwood woman expected to wait a year or longer to sell her parents’ log home in the Center Grove area.

After her parents died, Janet Kleingartner was looking to sell the house as soon as she could. She put $30,000 into updates and renovations, including new carpet, dropped the price of the home from $330,000 to $300,000, and then accepted an offer of $275,000 after five months of having the home listed for sale.

And the family that bought the house had just sold their old home off of Olive Branch Road in less than three months.

The local housing market is improving in 2013, experts said.
