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.
Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc. is the official name of Bent Tree’s new real estate venture. There is a planned “soft opening” for October 1. Some basic information about the venture is available in the September 25, 2018 General Manager’s Report to the Board (available on the official Bent Tree website). The benefits listed in the report (note – these benefits are per the General Manager) are: new revenues, promoting of Bent Tree from within (better communication to new home owners), actively work with the Land Analysis & Development Committee, knowledgeable about the inventory of land, future development, and developer relations.
Three weeks ago, the post on this website was about Bent Tree’s new realty business. Today, it’s time to give a shout out to some of the real estate professionals who have served the Bent Tree community for years and years…through the real estate highs, and through the real estate lows that followed the nationwide market collapse a decade ago.
Many of the agents are longtime Bent Tree property owners.
15 lots within the Bent Tree community are marked as “SOLD” from last week’s tax sale. Click here to link to the county’s report of the results. It will be interesting to see what becomes of the lots after the redemption period has passed. Three of the lots that sold are next to each other. One of those lots is already a combined double lot. Conceivably, they could all be combined into one lot that is over 2½ acres.

December 4, 2013 - Turtle Log in Lake Tamarack
The lot is just a stone’s throw from the “Turtle Log” viewing spot. The photo above was taken on December 4th. Click here for a previous post about the log. That post will take you to an even earlier post. If the weather is warm on any given day, it is likely that turtles will be on the log.
Twenty-four lots in Bent Tree have been purchased by a new business venture. Bent Tree saw an immediate benefit from the transfer of ownership, in that a large sum of past due assessment money was collected. The business owners plan to build/sell homes on the properties and already have approval from the Architectural Committee to begin construction on two of the lots. The General Manager’s November 26, 2013 Report to the Board contains more information.

Native Georgians and other loyal Coca-Cola drinkers may find this news hard to swallow:
Coke is out and Pepsi is in.
According to the February 26, 2013 General Manager’s Report to the Board, rising Coke prices and decreasing Coke service led to the switch in Bent Tree’s soft drink provider.
“The only way that I could figure they could improve upon Coca-Cola, one of life’s most delightful elixirs, which studies prove will heal the sick and occasionally raise the dead, is to put bourbon in it.”
