What You Need To Know About Houston Golf Communities

What You Need To Know About Houston Golf Communities

Golf-front life provides some outstanding advantages. However, there could also be drawbacks, so asking your Realtor about these factors will help you make the best decision.

Even if you’re not a massive fan of the sport, there are still many fantastic perks of living close to a golf course such as high property appreciation rates, excellent school districts, luxury amenities, and, of course, golf at your disposal.

To help you in making an informed decision, here are a few factors that you should know about golf communities in Houston:

Security.

houses for sale on golf courses near me

Security is among the primary concerns for everyone living in Houston golf course communities, particularly those with homes on the course itself. And no, this is not about crime. It’s all about your protection from flying projectiles.

Regardless of where you live on a golf course, your house may be at significant risk of being battered with a consistent flow of wayward golf balls. Smashed windows, dented roofs, and cracked windshields may be a common problem for homeowners at Houston TX golf course communities.

Consult your Realtor and insurance provider to see if your homeowners’ policy covers shattered windows and property damage.

Course developers and golf experts believe that the worst location for a golf course homes in Houston Texas is on the right-hand side of a hole around 150 to 200 yards away from the tee and just next to the green, even though the property is well above it.

Legal relations between you and the course.

Searching for a property in golf course communities in Texas will require you to ask the right questions. What is your legal relationship with the golf course? Are you allowed to use the course? If so, what are the terms and conditions? Nowadays, the developer retains the ownership of the golf course, and they can operate it as a public course or run it as a private club.

Look for a competent realtor who can address your concerns about your legal arrangement with the golf course.

royal oaks country club houston homes for sale

Noise.

Pay special attention to the location of the home you are interested in as things could get loud when the house is near the course. It will be particularly the case if the home is around a tee box or a golf cart trail since these places are the players’ meeting areas, which can be noisier so make sure to check out a Houston Texas golf course communities map.

Even though the course could be quiet and peaceful at nighttime, construction work and maintenance always starts very early in the morning, and you might have to wake up to the sound of a mower.

Homeowners Association (HOA) “Restrictions.”

Stringent real estate agreements bind the properties in golf course communities near Houston TX, so although perfectly developed estates along a landscaped course boost property prices, read the terms and conditions beforehand.

There might be guidelines for setting up fences or building restrictions, for instance. Or, if you buy a property close to a golf course thinking they will allow you to move around with your golf clubs in hand, the HOA by-laws might not permit you to do so.

Before moving to any community with an efficient HOA, ask your realtor, and get copies of minutes from previous HOA meetings to get a relatively accurate viewpoint on the structure.

Maintenance.

Golf courses are commonly mowed even before sunrise. Most golf courses also provide a periodic dousing of fertilizers and pesticides, so, based on the items used, wastewater may be harmful to people and domestic animals.

If you are interested in Royal Oaks Country Club homes for sale, start by asking what kind of lawn maintenance items they use and how often the field team handles the greens.

The Golf Course Can Close.

tiger woods golf course houston

The decline of golf course communities appears to be a significant issue, according to a piece from the Wall Street Journal. With 1,200 golf course communities and golf’s popularity steadily decreasing as a hobby, many property owners experience decreasing real estate values.

If a golf course shuts down, the valuation of houses in the surrounding neighborhood is usually 25% lower — 40-50% lower if a court battle occurs.

It’s certainly not going to be a significant issue as a beautiful house will not lose its value because of a slight dip in the sport’s popularity. However, this is still something to consider for a long-term investment, especially if access to the game is your primary reason for buying a home in a golf course community.

“We relocated to Texas from out of state 3 years ago, and Paige’s intimate knowledge of Houston neighborhoods, valuations, trends, and pitfalls was simply unmatched. We would never have been able to find our perfect home without her. She was calm and focused when everything seemed most challenging — a true professional and advocate who has become a dear friend. We are grateful to have met her!
