The first step in finding that golf course community that’s right for you is to ask yourself. What are you looking for in that community? There is so much out there that you have to imagine something that specific to your needs. In Sarasota County alone there is so many golf communities that you are going to be overwhelmed prospecting on your own, The houses are going to be much the same, singly-family homes, maintenance free, patio, zero lot line Villas.
But what you need is to have is someone to help you find out the things that make a difference to you:
- what the amenities are in the community?
- what amenities are surrounding the community (Hospitals, Shopping Restaurants, Other family members)?
- the average age of the residents in the community
- what are the regular activities community and/or clubs?
The house is almost irrelevant. It’s the amenities that are going to make it come alive for you. You also need to ask yourself where you want to live within the golf community. Do want a home overlooking the fairway, one overlooking a tee box, a green, a lake, you get the idea, all that stuff makes a difference. Keep in mind: it should be like coming home to a vacation every day.
Because buying a home is usually your family’s biggest investment, another thing to consideration in your purchase is the long-term value of your investment. It makes sense to see what factors are in place that will affect its value when it comes time to sell. Things to consider before you buy in that community should be:
- private vs. semi-private
- total golf membership vs. number of golf holes
- club ownership (member owned, privately owned?)
- the financial strength of the club.
All these items help to define the quality and exclusivity of the community.
