Gettin' Real: A Real Estate Blog

Many people say they don't really feel like an adult until they buy their first home. It is a huge step. Rather than letting a landlord make all important repairs, you take on this responsibility yourself. You also get to build equity in the home over time, which can be a rather smart investment. At the same time, buying your first home can be a little intimidating. You may have questions about applying for a mortgage, setting a budget, and shopping efficiently. We hope to answer those questions with our helpful content. Your real estate agent is a good source of information, and so is this blog.

Beyond the Tee: Other Desirable Features of Golf Course Homes

Golf front homes offer the ultimate in golfing convenience as residents receive prime tee times and can walk (or take a golf cart) directly to the first hole. The perks of these homes extend beyond golfing itself, though, as golf front homes have several other highly desirable features.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of golf front homes.

Beautiful Views of the Course

Homeowners who own a golf front home benefit from their house's location even when they aren't outside. Homes that sit on a golf course offer expansive views of tees, fairways, and greens, and many also have views of what surrounds the course. These may be beautifully wooded areas, shorelines, or other scenic landscapes.

When you have a view that's so gorgeous, even a mundane task like preparing dinner becomes more enjoyable if you can look out the window at your home's surroundings. Of course, eating dinner in a dining room with large windows or on a porch outdoors is also particularly nice.

On-Site Amenities at the Clubhouse

Most golf courses have clubhouses, and the clubhouse near a golf front home might provide several amenities. It will certainly serve as a social center for the community, providing a space for people to gather. The clubhouse may also have an on-site salon, restaurant, store, or other feature.

With these amenities right in a community, going out is extremely convenient. Whether you need to pick up a basic essential at a store or want to have dinner at a restaurant, you only need to walk down the pathway or get in a golf cart. You'll be at the clubhouse shortly.

Well-Maintained Landscaping

Golf front homes usually come with homeowners association fees that homeowners in the community must pay, but these fees help are put toward important amenities and services. One service they cover is landscaping. 

Most golf front home communities have landscaping crews or contractors who take care of all yard work and tree trimming. You won't have to worry about watering the grass, edging along the sidewalk, fertilizing the garden, or any other form of outdoor plant care. It'll all be taken care of for you.

Even though this service isn't free since it's paid for by homeowners association fees, it's still an extremely valuable perk to many homeowners. People who are too busy to care for their home's yard and older seniors who can't do all of the maintenance themselves both appreciate the service.
