A 1,145-acre farm in southeast Pulaski County was flipped in a $2.5 million sale.

Kingridge Enterprises Inc., led by Mark Jackson, acquired the land a mile southeast of Sweet Home along Fourche Creek and Harper Road.

The seller is Jimmy Winemiller's U.S. Investment Realty Co.

The transaction is financed with a 10-year loan of $1.8 million from Rabo Agrifinance Inc. of St. Louis and a two-year loan of $800,000 from U.S. Investment.

The property previously was tied to a January mortgage of $1.04 million held by Arvest Bank of Fayetteville.

U.S. Investment purchased the farm for $1.3 million seven months ago from the Ernest & Mary Harper Joint Revocable Trust, David Harper, Angela Harper Car-michael, the Anna L. Harper Revocable Trust and Alfred Harper.

The Harper family began assembling the land in deals dating back to January 1923 and running through January 1950.


Church Sale

Disciples Church of Arkansas Inc. bought the 6.1-acre development at 800 Kirby Road from Parkway Place Baptist Church Inc.

The deal is funded with a five-year loan of $550,000 from BancorpSouth Bank of Tupelo, Miss. The property previously helped secure an April 2005 mortgage of $3.26 million held by Centennial Bank of Conway.

Parkway Place purchased the former Lord of Life Lutheran Church for $643,000 in June 2002 from the Mid-South District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
