This Center Grove neighborhood is close to everything! Buckmoor Manor is located just south of Smith Valley Road and north of Olive Branch on 135 in Greenwood.

This beautiful brick & cedar home had 19 showing appointments and an accepted offer in 19 days. The lots in Buckmoor are typically a quarter acre or less, allowing residents to enjoy their time at the neighborhood swimming pool & tennis courts, along with a clubhouse for resident rental & use.

A home inspection is a visual examination of the structure and systems of your new Greenwood/Center Grove house. It details the property’s problems, and gives the you the buyer the information you need to proceed with, or walk away from the sale. The three main points of a home inspection are: physical condition, items in need of repair or replacement, and the condition of major systems.
The seller is NOT required to make repairs, but the buyer can use the report for another negotiation if repairs are necessary. The home inspection is NOT a chance to have every single item fixed or repaired in a home. You must take into account the age and natural wear that is expected on an existing home. We advise our clients to focus on those items that if the seller chose not to fix, you would walk away from the house.
The home inspection report won’t cover any defects or issues that are not visible. They also won’t cover any inoperable systems – such as if the air conditioner works during the winter, or any code violations that may have taken place in the past.
Keep in mind that it’s always a good idea to be present during a home inspection. This way you are able to ask questions, and the inspector can also point out areas of potential trouble, while also offering maintenance tips. You can expect an average home inspection to take 2-5 hours. Typically speaking, the costs of an inspection can run $300-$500 depending on size of the home.
The Metro Indy Pros team has recommendations for licensed Home Inspectors who are well known in the Greenwood and Johnson county areas. You can also ask your family, friends and colleagues for additional names of people they have used; or research names and companies on the Internet. When interviewing Home Inspectors always be sure to ask about references, memberships in professional associations, professional training, and experience.

Tuesday is partner’s meeting time in our office. We talk about inventory and market stats, listing/buyer needs & wants and share helpful tips & tricks for managing your business. Definitely a good use of our time, although it always surprises me how few agents show up to these, there’s always valuable insights shared.
Today was no exception, we discussed the shortage of inventory we’re experiencing in our market currently (click here to watch “Definition of Inventory”). We’re at just 5 months of inventory and not keeping pace with buyer demands. In fact, its been reported that by the year 2018 we will have the shortest amount of housing inventory since World War II!
There are a number of factors that influence inventory levels, the most obvious is the lack of new construction that went on from 2008 – 2011. Builders are slowly ramping back up again but have a lot of lost years to make up for. We’re also finding that many homeowners aren’t aware how much the market has picked up in the last two years. People who were unable to sell their homes in the downswing may not realize home values have appreciated significantly and they may be able to afford a move where they couldn’t before.
We at the KW Metro Indy Pros team have first hand knowledge about this shortage. Just ask any buyer we are working with right now. Houses come on the market and sell fast, and finding one that fits your criteria gets harder and harder. If you know anyone who is ready to sell a home in Greenwood and surrounding areas in Indiana, here’s a few clients we are searching for now. Who do you know that is thinking of selling that fits their criteria? We’d love to talk to them!
