The number of homes listed for sale in Bent Tree continues to shrink. When I looked at one of my favorite real estate websites yesterday, only 22 Bent Tree homes were tagged as “ACTIVE” for sale. Of those 22, seven were already “UNDER CONTRACT” (in the due diligence period). An additional 20 homes have a “SALES PENDING” status. There are still great build-able lots available.

As of yesterday, at least Bent Tree 54 homes have hit the books as sold so far this year. The inventory of available homes listed for sale continues to shrink, with approximately 3% of the existing 1100 homes currently listed as “Active” and approximately 1% with a “Sales Pending” status.
The Bent Tree Men’s Golf Association has a tournament today and they are dedicating it to Andy. Andy wrote MGA articles for the Echo newsletter for years and years, complete with accompanying photographs. The articles were informative, thoughtful, and always included a touch of humor. The main part of the articles gave entertaining recaps of MGA news. But, it was always the last section of his articles that I most looked forward to reading…the “My Commentary” part.
Andy and his wife sold their mountain cabin in March of last year and moved to Florida. Early this year I was happy to learn that they bought another home in Bent Tree, and moved back. Many of us looked forward to seeing that big smile again around the clubhouse. Unfortunately, Andy passed away in April.
So, guys…I hope you hit ‘em straight out there today, have fun, celebrate Andy, and keep his wife in your thoughts. But, if you can’t hit ‘em straight, here’s a quote from one of Andy’s commentaries that might help: “When we play golf we should be taking the time to ‘smell the roses’ as we plod along our merry way. There are many pleasant visual experiences to be had on our golf course, and they shouldn’t be missed while tracking down our errant shots or making our way to the green or tee boxes…”.
Several Scarlet Tanagers have been flitting around the trees in our yard over the last week or so. They’ve been so quick that the photo below is the best snapshot I could get. Click here for a post from 2013 that has some better tanager photos.
Yesterday’s post showed a bluebird sunbathing. Today’s post is a photo, taken yesterday afternoon, of a non-venomous water snake curled up in the shade under a rock the edge of a creek in Bent Tree. Only its head was poking out in the sunshine.
