“A hotbed of activity”

There’s an interesting front-page article in this week’s  Pickens County Progress newspaper.  Quoting from the first paragraph, “County and city planning leaders say their building departments are going full steam ahead, with an increase in interest from people who want to move or develop in Pickens. There are currently several residential projects underway, as well as some commercial developments
and solicitations of interest.” 
It sounds like things are hopping in Pickens County!

Cottage Cats

These cats were hanging out beside the Bent Tree Cottage yesterday afternoon.  If they were in that spot earlier in the day, they had front-row views of the paving action at the trash center.

Shrinking Inventory

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.



“Participation Surge”

Click here to link to the National Golf Foundation’s July 29th Covid-19 Impact article.  At the mid-point of the year, data is pointing to a possible 20% increase in the number of junior golfers (ages 6-17) this year.  Quoting from the article, It makes sense, with golf celebrated as a safe and healthy outdoor activity for all ages as the coronavirus rages on. With many youth sports on hold or slowly coming back, and families seeking activities they can do together, especially as schools were out, golf has emerged as a terrific alternative.
