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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
August 6, 2017 – Hummingbird and Cardinal Flower in Bent Tree
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.
225 Oglethorpe Mountain Road recently hit the market with an asking price of $79,900. This property could make another great “Flipping Bent Tree” episode.

The current owner bought the property at a tax sale in 2015. After the right of redemption period passed, the owner went through the legal steps to obtain the title to the property.
