Golf Course Community or not?? The Coachella Valley has plenty of options for people that love to golf..something like 120 courses? We also offer many non-golf course choices, some with clubhouses and other amenities, and some without. There are several things to consider in your home buying “must haves”, before you commit to one or the other. Many owners here in the Desert cities of the Coachella Valley, only actually reside in their homes during our perfect winter months. Some people stay the entire season, some just a month or so, some only on weekends. Are you looking for a golf get away, or just some amenities? Built in social scene, or more a person that likes to gt out and mingle at some of the local ‘things to do” in each City, such as The City of La Quinta.
5 Things to Consider when deciding between golf course communities or not…
- Will you actually play golf enough to warrant it?
- Communities with golf courses in them also demand higher HOA’s. Be sure you figure that into your monthly payment. But also remember that those HOA fees also include things you would have to pay monthly otherwise..such as landscaping, pool maintenance, courts, common areas..
- Golf Course communities have a closer built in social circle..especially if there’s a clubhouse and social amenities!
- As a general rule, you will pay more/sf. for golf course communities
- Location, location, location..whether you are choosing a golf course community or not.
Many golf course communities do not demand that you buy a membership just because you’re buying a home there. Often new buyers want to own in the golf community, but won’t have enough time to enjoy a golf membership until later in their lives. PGA West in La Quinta is an example of a golf course community in La Quinta that has public and private golf courses, and does not demand your purchase a golf membership when you buy a home. Another one is The Hideaway Golf Club in La Quinta..
