4 Key Benefits Of Living In A Golf Course Community

If you're in the process of looking at houses and come across one in a golf course community, you'll definitely want to check it out regardless of whether you're a golfer or not. After all, there are a number of benefits you can enjoy when living on a golf course, aside from the obvious proximity to afternoon tee time!

Added Space Between Neighbors

When you live on a golf course, one of the greatest benefits you'll have is the view out your back yard! Rather than your property backing right up to another neighbor, you'll have beautiful golf course views immediately behind you, to the side, or both. This also gives you a little more privacy than you would have with a neighbor directly behind you.

Meticulous Landscaping

Golf courses are known for their meticulous, beautiful landscaping--and those landscaping efforts often extend to the nearby communities (especially if your HOA is run by the same people who manage the golf course landscaping). From lush, green grass to colorful flowers throughout the year, you'll enjoy all the sights of living on a golf course without having to do any of the landscaping work yourself.

Home Value Protection

You'd be hard-pressed to find a home in a golf course neighborhood that is not a part of an HOA, and HOAs are known to help protect home values. There are a number of ways in which they do this, including setting and enforcing strict standards for keeping the neighborhood looking its best. Often times, HOAs in golf course communities go above and beyond to create guidelines that homeowners agree on and that help to protect property values in the area.

Events and Amenities

Golf course communities often have a lot of great amenities to offer. including swimming pools, tennis courts, and clubhouses. In addition to having all these amenities at your disposal, you may also find that the golf course near your home holds a number of fun events throughout the year that you can partake in and that will not be more than a few minute's walk from your home!

These are just a few of the many reasons to consider buying a home in a golf course community. While you may spend a little more to live in a golf course community up-front, you'll also get to enjoy the beautiful sights, privacy, and added land values as part of your investment.

Real Estate Tips from a New Homeowner

While some people "wing it" when purchasing their first home, I went about the process differently. I put a lot of research into home market trends before even deciding where I would like my new home to be located and learned about all of the steps of the buying process. Once I was ready to start looking at homes, I hired a real estate agent who was very impressed with all the knowledge I had accumulated about the home-buying process before I even owned my first home! I love learning, so I actually greatly enjoyed learning all about real estate, and I am still keeping on top of the latest real estate news and trends since I know they will come in handy when I decide to upgrade into a larger home in the future. I decided to help others by sharing what I have learned on a blog!
