Bent Tree and Big Canoe

Bent Tree and Big Canoe are both beautiful, unique communities.  Many potential buyers look at both and discover which one feels right for them.  Big Canoe is more refined and manicured; Bent Tree is more laid-back and rustic.

The following is a brief comparison of some key aspects of both communities (click image below to zoom or click here for pdf).  If anyone sees something that needs to be corrected on the comparison, you can email admin@benttreevoice.com with the information and I will get it updated. Both communities offer much more than what is shown below (i.e. hiking trails, playgrounds, bocce courts, numerous organized clubs and activities).

Now Blooming in Bent Tree

Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis), also known as spotted touch-me-not, is a magnet for hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.  The bushy annuals shine like jewels when covered with the morning dew, especially when the sun hits them.  The juice from the stems is said to help treat poison ivy rashes.

BT and BC GM Searches

It’s interesting that both Bent Tree and Big Canoe will be searching for new general managers at the same time.  It was announced at last Saturday’s Lake & Wildlife Partners meeting that Bent Tree will begin the formal search process on August 15. The only thing I really know about BTCI’s policy on hiring a general manager is from Article III C Section 18 of the bylaws (click here).

Here’s some information about Big Canoe’s search process:

Fourteen more home sales hit the books since my last post on the subject.  The following list is sorted by closing price. The total of the 51 home sales represented on this list is $9,893,590. The $10 million mark has likely been passed by this time. UPDATE – an August 3rd closing hit the books this morning (not included on the list below), pushing the total sales in Bent Tree so far this year over $10,000,000.  The inventory of available Bent Tree homes on the market has dropped to about 60 (including one villa).  That means that only about 5½% of the homes in Bent Tree are currently for sale.  A number of other homes have pending offers.
