Thoughts About Living On A Golf Course
Privacy - This is a double-edged sword. You gain privacy by not having to stare into the backyard of a neighbor, but you lose privacy with hundreds of your closest friends always going by the back of the home. For this reason, pay close attention to how a home is situated on the golf course. Do you really want to lay around your pool and have a constant flow of people saying "hello" to you?
Safety - Looking out the back windows of your home and seeing a wide expanse of greenery is great. It's also fun to be able to watch golf (if you like the sport). Living on the course can allow for this. But like we used to say in the Army ... "that can be seen can be hit, and that can be hit can be killed!" While this is a bit extreme, just know that if you have a premium view of the course, golfers have a premium target in your home. Don't buy a home on a golf course and then be surprised that you keep getting hit by balls. Trust me, it won't be Tiger Woods playing out back, rather it will be hacks like me!
Noise - Golf is only a quite sport during Sunday at the Masters. For the rest of the world, there is lots of screams and beer-induced foul language. You cannot avoid it. If you choose a home on a golf course that sits back quite a ways, what you lose in view you will gain in noise control.

Have You Heard About Our Long-Term Shop & Lock Mortgage Program?
In this crazy seller's market, it can be tough to get a home under contract when so many other buyers are bidding on the same home as you. In fact, there are many buyers who have tried and failed multiple times to get homes under contract, and they are facing a problem we have not seen in the past.
Mortgage interest rates are moving higher, and many buyers have found that the rate has grown so much since they first began their home search that they no longer can afford to buy at the price they have been shopping. This is why for many buyers we recommend they evaluate a long-term rate lock that will allow them to shop for up to NINE (9) months without losing their loan commitment.
Simply provide your contact information below and we will help you evaluate the best time and way to utilize a mortgage interest rate lock.
