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.

Making a Difference!

Little Things can mean the most!

As written and read by Karen Spell  to the Corn Hole players at their February 26th event.

Dear Corn Hole Players:

A few weeks ago my neighbor, Nancy Williams and her out of town friends, attended a Corn Hole event here in Bailey’s Glen. One of the friends attending with Nancy was a man named Michael who has downs syndrome. The corn hole players that day encouraged Michael to join in the playing and  in Nancy’s words, “he had a ball”.  For days afterwords Nancy said he could speak of little else but what a good time he had had.  Even after Michael returned home he continued to regal everyone he spoke to about playing corn hole with the folks in Bailey’s Glen.  He could not wait to come back and visit Nancy and play again.

Michael’s condition has caused him many health challenges throughout the years and unfortunately shortly after returning home he received another setback, a stroke.  At time of this writing Michael is in a medically induced coma with a breathing tube.   Michael has overcome many health issues in his life and hopefully this one too will have a positive outcome.

Nancy was telling me and all her friends what a great time Michael had during his visit and how playing corn hole was a big highlight of that trip.  I just wanted all of you to know that your inclusion of Michael that day while it may not seem big to you was HUGE to Michael and gave him great happiness.

Sometimes we need to be reminded how small kindnesses can have such a big impact on someone else. Things like the above events make me proud to be a member of the Bailey’s Glen community

P.S.  Nancy was in attendance when I surprised the corn hole players at their event with this thank you message.  When I finished she told us  Michael had passed away the night before.  You may only get one chance to make a difference for someone, take it!!

What’s New in Bailey’s Glen?

Welcome to the inaugural addition of What’s New in Bailey’s Glen. Each month in this newsletter I will highlight the latest market update and other happenings in Bailey’s Glen.
Spring has sprung and the flowers are very much in evidence. The Friday night pool parties have started back up and warm water activities such as water aerobics and kayaking are just around the corner. It looks to be a busy spring/summer season so get out and enjoy this gorgeous weather.
As for the housing market, Bailey’s Glen is enjoying a robust selling season. There are approximately 40 homes contracted for or under construction at this time. There is one private home currently on the market and another under contract. The builder has one completed model home for sale. In 90-120 days additional lots will become available for sale located just above current Coulter Parkway homes. All single family homes have just experienced a price increase from the builder, good news for current residences. Some of the price increases were accompanied by inclusion of additional upgrades.
When completed Bailey’s Glen will have 371 single family homes and 132 condominiums. The condos are schedule to begin construction sometime in 2017. The condominium phase will include another swimming pool and an onsite restaurant.
Aside from houses there are numerous projects throughout the Glen in planning and various stages of construction. These projects include the woodworking shop, greenhouse and a gazebo which will be located behind and below upper Coulter Parkway alley, as well as relocation of the Community Gardens (after the current gardening season) to above Coulter Parkway . In addition, there will be a water feature just over the bridge on Meetinghouse Dr. and a gazebo and splash pad behind the clubhouse. Numerous pocket parks are also in different stages of completion throughout the community.
The Forest, just up Bailey Road, and affectionately known as Bailey’s Glen II, is slated to release the first set of 21 lots in the next 60-90 days and there is a waiting list of interested buyers. The Forest is proposed to include 173 front load (garages in front) homes, a club house and a pool when completed. The models for these homes are the same as the models for Bailey’s Glen.

Until next month,  see you in the Glen!
