The corridor which was originally laid out is closer to parallelling Hwy 1010 (which we just call TenTen in the area). No decision as he noted, but both Mayors of Holly Springs and Fuquay have banded together on the original route, land is already bought or spoken for by DOT - of which most all of it was farm or undeveloped land, very few established homes were sold, and no new communities. Believe me as home-owners, we looked into it. But to answer the question, of why homes are coming up for sale.
It's the fact that for the Bentcreek neighborhood, I particularly had to take a job in DC, and I need to sell my house. Another couple bought a fixer up house in Sanford (closer to his job) that could accommodate their ailing mother (alsheimers), getting their house ready to sell. Yet another couple has kids going to college and would like to sell their house in the next couple years to move closer to his job and just downsize. A couple sold their home a year ago to move into a bigger house - the teenage kids were outgrowing the Bentcreek house. We have one foreclosure going on in Bentcreek, because the family had to take a job in New Jersey, when he got laid off and the company bellied up.
Hey - we're getting old and life happens. Take advantage of it........
