Buyer/Seller Beware!

  1. Be aware of trends in golf course play. You do not want a golf course to shut down due to lack of play. The above communities (more than likely) will never run into this issue.
  2. Placement of home on golf course, noise like golf course maintenance, damage from golf balls (you know who you are), and lack of privacy. Buying a home down the right or left hand side of the fairway, expect to get a lot of balls in your yard or worse hitting your house. This can lead to potential insurable issues.
  3. Consider lawn maintenance. When will lawns be mowed? Might wake you the fuck up!
  4. Adverse possession. Can a golf course end up owning your property because they have used it enough for the legal timeline? Check easements…
  5. If the golf course fails, what will that do for your home investment?
  6. Think elevation. You don’t want to pay $1 million or more for a home when everyone can look in your backyard.
  7. For SELLERS – if your selling must disclose if balls have hit your home.
