Spring is just around the corner.  The season signals not only a temperate climate, new leaves, flowers blooming and higher grass, but also a hotter housing market.  The Charlotte/Lake Norman area remains one of the fastest growing, most desirable places to live.

Here in Bailey’s Glen there are currently on the market as resales, five homes, one having just sold and closed.  Traffic has been brisk viewing these homes.  Seventy lots remain available in Bailey’s Glen and twenty of the one hundred seventy five  lots in the Forest are under contract.  Spring is historically the busiest time to buy or sell a home and with interest rates on the rise, but still low, many buyers and sellers who were on the fence are now getting in the market.

Recent improvements in our community include, relocation of the community garden to its permanent location, just past upper Coulter Parkway, and commencement of construction on the Pavilion adjacent to the tennis courts which when complete will include open covered seating, a fire feature, and restrooms.

As we usher in the new year the housing market looks to remain strong in and around the Charlotte area. With interest rates, by most indications, poised to raise slightly both buyers and sellers on the fence about making a move will look to do so sooner than later.  The first quarter of any year is typically the strongest in terms of home sale transactions and 2017 looks to be especially so.

In Bailey’s Glen there are six privately owned homes on the market with Realtors , and one Spec home offered by the builder.. All of the remaining lots in Bailey’s Glen with the exception of those along the creek, have been released and are selling at a steady pace. We now have 240 homes occupied and approximately 46 under construction.

In The Forest at Bailey’s Glen, the first 21 lots have been released for purchase with 8 having been sold and 2 more have reservations.. These larger lots are for the Classic and Premier Plans. The first building permits have been approved and construction has  commenced  on the first lots.

BAILEY’S GLEN DECEMBER 2016 Update

The Holidays are in full swing and a new year is fast approaching.  Looking back on this year’s housing market both in the Charlotte area and Bailey’s Glen, prices rose and sales were and remain brisk. This has been fueled by a good economy and low interest rates.  Rates are predicted to gradually rise post-election and will not have an immediate impact on home sales.

In Bailey’s Glen there are six privately owned homes on the market with Realtors , and one Spec home offered by the builder.. Most of the 16 recently released lots are under contract. We now have 239 homes occupied and 46 under construction.

In The Forest at Bailey’s Glen, the first 21 lots have been released for purchase with 8 having been sold. These larger lots are for the Classic and Premier Plans. The first building permits have been approved and construction has or will commence shortly.

At our Bailey’s Glen annual HOA meeting while there was not a lot of new information provided,  we were given reassurances on both improvements in progress as well as those yet to come in our community.  When Bailey’s Glen and the Forest are complete we will share 3 pools (one heated), 2 clubhouses, and a Bistro type restaurant as well as other amenities.

Bailey’s Glen November Update 2016

Don’t Blink!  The Holidays are right around the corner, a fact that is inescapable if you venture into any store, of any kind, or turn on the TV or computer.

The housing market in the Charlotte area has cooled slightly but is still much better than the national average. PwC and the Urban Land Institute have just declared Charlotte one of the top 3 housing markets in the U.S. in terms of where people want to move.  There are still more buyers than homes for sale in our area but that is beginning to even out.

Here in Bailey’s Glen, there are 4 homes listed for resale. One, previously listed for sale, has expired and will be back active on the market by the time of this printing.  A sixth resale home will also soon be coming on the market.

In our sister community, The Forest, just up Bailey Road, the Plats are finally recorded, meaning the lots can be built on.  Nine lots are sold and construction will commence once applied for permits have been approved.

Elsewhere in the Glen, the Community Gardens are slated to be moved to their permanent location, just above upper Coulter Parkway, sometime this winter. There are no plans to move the construction trailer at this time.    Work is progressing rapidly on the undeveloped upper portion of our community. where sixteen lots have been released for sale and the balance will soon follow. Many of these lots have been presold and activity remains hot.

On Thanksgiving, and every other day, we all need to be thankful for our many blessings.  Two of the many things I am most thankful for are my home and friends here in Bailey’s Glen.
