Arizona Golf Course Living
Living on a golf course sounds like a dream to many people. Beautiful views, quick and easy access, and numerous other benefits. There is a lot to like about living on a golf course, and it is not for everyone.
Here are a few things to think about before deciding to buy a home on the course. The first is damage. For what ever reason, some people do not think about this fact when choosing their new home. In fact, some people don’t even notice the golf ball dings in the siding of the house. The location on the course can affect the frequency the house may get hit. Talk to a real estate professional for help with this.
The next factor to consider is privacy. Most times the backyard of the home is visible to those playing the course and sometimes people passing by. Will you spend a lot of time in the backyard? Do you have a pool you would like to spend time in without people looking at you? People should not be doing this, but how would you feel about people going into your backyard to get a ball, or at the least using a ball retriever or golf club to reach that ball that went out of bounds? These are all things to think about if you would like to purchase a home on the course.
Obviously, some of these things are more likely to happen than others, but they should all be considered. There are also other factors to consider, but these are the main concerns of people wanting to live on a golf course. For some people these may not matter at all to them. Many people fee the benefits out weigh the negatives.
Homes on a golf course tend to hold their value pretty well. There are certain factors that can cause this not to be true, but this appears to be the trend. There are also a lot of amenities in golf course communities. Some of these amenities include: restaurants pro shops, fitness centers, community centers, clubhouses, walking paths, and others that impact a property in a positive way.
If this does not sound good to you, you may want to consider just living in a golf course neighborhood. You get many of the benefits of living on a golf course, but fewer negatives. For many people this is a win-win situation.
