Lots of Numbers, No Fake News in Latest Newsletter

        I missed publishing a newsletter in October, but I am making it up to subscribers with a power-packed combined October/November issue, which is set to mail on Wednesday morning. The main feature includes some impressive charts about cost of living comparisons, popularity of Carolina cities and where all those new residents of the Carolinas are coming from, all courtesy of our friends at CarolinaLiving.com. For relocation purposes, the Carolinas are a bit like Alice’s Restaurant, given geographies that include ocean, mountains and crystal clear lakes. (You really can get everything you want in the way of climate, elevation and the best golf east of the Mississippi.)
        Speaking of geography, I make the case in this edition that any couple contemplating a home in the Southeastern U.S. should start with one consideration only –- topography. If that seems odd, stay tuned if you are a subscriber, and subscribe if you are not, to find out what I mean. (The subscription is free and no salesman will call.)
        We are ending an awful hurricane season, a fact that might put some people off their dream of a home near the beach. My wife and I own a vacation home less than ¾ mile from the Atlantic Ocean in South Carolina and, yet, I believe the odds are with us in terms of hurricane damage. See what I mean in the latest issue of Home On The Course
        I tackle a few other topics, but maybe the most compelling information in this issue of Home On The Course is a chart I put together that shows sample home prices and the property taxes paid on them. Those of us who live in the high-tax Northeast should be especially interested in all the 3,000+ square foot homes in nice golf communities that carry property tax assessments 1/5th to 1/10th what we currently pay. How about a $300,000 home in a fine Carolina golf community with annual property taxes below $1,000? Crazy but true.

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
