Fore! Buying In a Golf Club Community

The choice to purchase a property from among the Palm Beach Gardens homes for sale within golf club communities — such as the popular offerings within the Mirasol, Frenchman’s Reserve and Old Marsh — brings with it its own set of opportunities and challenges. There are a lot of great reasons to buy in golf club communities — it’s a fantastic investment for enthusiasts looking for a vacation or retirement home, and they tend to retain value in a more stable and predictable way than other comparable properties.

But there are important considerations every buyer should take into account before signing on the dotted line, and (as with most real estate) location should be first among them — specifically, how close the house is to the golf course itself. If part of the attraction is going to be watching others play over your morning coffee, you’ll want to be as close as possible; that’s also an advantage if you’re interested in walking to go play, too. But consider whether the potentially loud banter of excited golfers is something you’d like to hear day-in and day-out, and remember that the closer you are, the more slice shots may strike your home.

It’s important to remember that location within any planned community also means some homes are nearer to the entrance, and some are further back. There’s more to that than just another moment or two to reach your door when returning home; consider the fact that if you live right by the gate, everyone else in the subdivision will drive past you every time they leave and return. On the flip side, however, while living deeper within might be quieter, it’s typically more difficult for visitors and guests to find you.
