What to look for in a golf course home
You’re probably buying a home on the golf course for its prestigious views, close proximity to one of your favorite sports, and resale value. While its waterfront homes in Florida, it’s definitely golf course homes in the Phoenix Metro area. And of course, Phoenix is one of the perfect places for avid golfers.
Look for a property that suits your needs maintenance-wise. Do you want to condominium or villa where most of the outside maintenance is handled by the Association or would you prefer to do a little gardening yourself?
Consider resale value. Even though you’re buying the home now, you may sell it in the future even if you don’t think you will. Understanding resale value and how attractive the property is to future buyers is something to consider when you buy the property.
Investigate the surrounding area. Do you want a gated community? A community with a clubhouse with lots of activities? Are the homeowner association fees too high or do they match the amenities provided to you? Are you close to medical facilities, stores, restaurants, and things you enjoy?
Is privacy a concern? Buying a home directly on the course means you might see a lot of people walking the fairways right in your backyard. This may or may not be of concern. Then of course, there’s the issue of the balls. Demand up with a ball or two in your backyard or even one through your window occasionally even though most golf courses are set up so that no one is shooting directly toward home.
Talk to the owners. Visit a few of your potential neighbors and ask how they like living in the community. Are there any concerns with the Association? Concerns with the type of golf course or rules? Ask about additional fees and how members relate to the board and other members.
Golf carts. Golf carts are usually a saying in golf communities and they do make a little bit of noise so that may or may not be of concern.
Ask about how much it cost for a round of golf at the course you’re thinking about buying on. Compared to the price of the house, there should be a logical ratio between the two. If a round of golf goes for about $25 and how sells for over $200,000, the property value is probably inflated. If the golf course is private, check on the inflation and monthly fees versus the prices of homes. If you are confused about this, simply ask your real estate agent to find out if the fees come privacy, and home prices match up.
