Let’s find your perfect Colorado home in that perfect golf course community. Whether you are a pro golfer, enthusiast or have only a passive interest in golf, Colorado Golf Course Communities can be a wise investment. While buying a new home allows for customization, older homes in established golf course neighborhoods can, in some instances, appreciate in value faster.
When looking for luxury homes located in golf course communities, it is important to take a number of things into consideration.
Finding the right lot in the right neighborhood for you
The first question you should ask is, “Where do I want to live?” Living right on the golf course provides excellent proximity to golfing and beautiful panoramas, but stray golf balls and loud golfers can be a detractor to some if your home is very close to the green. However, choosing a home slightly away from the green or fairway might be preferable for some people, while still preserving the desirability of this type of community. I’ll will research and help you find the perfect location as close to or far from the green as you desire.
The financial strength of a golf community is important as well. When finding you the perfect home, I will seek to determine that your new neighborhood has a fiscally healthy club along with further plans for future development and improvement.
Golf communities in Colorado frequently offer breathtaking views of the Rockies. Often additional neighborhood amenities such as country clubs, aquatic centers, and top-performing school districts go hand in hand with the golf course. Savvy developers really do seek to anchor their communities to an entire lifestyle, not just the course itself. If you select the community designed for a total luxury lifestyle, your enjoyment of a new Colorado golf course home will be enhanced all the more.
The best Colorado golf courses add value to the surrounding homes
Outside visitors to golf courses in these neighborhoods add revenue to the club, benefiting the entire community. Additionally, having a spectacular golf course in your neighborhood, more often than not, increases the value of your home. Please take into consideration the “who” and the “how” of course design in the area you are evaluating. Look for the best names in golf course design, such as Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus. Another consideration is basic but important: how well-regarded is the golf course? Has it been used in PGA tours or other events, and does it receive many visitors and high reviews? These factors enhance value. Many of the courses below have been host to numerous national championships.
Understanding the homeowner’s association a key in finding the perfect Colorado golf course community
Covenants of golf course communities are very strict, for good reason: these communities are expensive to develop and golf course homes are luxury homes typically higher in price. Homeowners associations can add value to homes by ensuring uniformity and restricting commercial development, but may have policies that detract from your enjoyment of a golf course home.
For instance, some covenants prohibit construction of fences to keep stray golf balls from your property. Many also include restrictions or regulations for landscaping and other outdoor features.
