Virtually everyone looking for a golf community home these days begins the search online. Golf community web sites are no different than any other consumer product and, therefore, expect from most of them a lot of hype and a less than thorough discussion of details, such as cost of golf membership and other fees. That said, you truly won’t get a feel for any golf community until you visit, and getting you on site should be the goal of every golf community web site. Some do that well, some not so well, and we present advice in the July issue of our free Home On The Course newsletter about how they can do better.
If you are inclined to visit a golf community in the coming months, make sure to take advantage of the “discovery packages” that most offer. We provide a list of a few such packages in golf communities we can recommend, and we are pleased to assist in making arrangements for the many dozens of communities that attract potential customers for a few days of golf, on-site lodging, access to the clubhouse and other amenities and, of course, a guided tour of the community. (These are generally of 90-minutes to two hours duration and without any hard sell by your real estate agent guide.)
