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.

 

 

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).

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.

Goose launch

A pair of geese seemed to think the skid built last year alongside the dock, to help launch kayaks and canoes, was made just for them. They went down the skid, right out into the lake (see lower left corner in first photo below). The second photo below is from last fall and shows the actual skid.
