Luxury and Hazards of Life on a Golf Course

Managing Real Estate Broker with San Diego Previews Real Estate CA BRE# 01101958

Aviara Golf CourseThe market for homes with golf frontage in Carlsbad, CA is a hot one--and likely so in your geographical area as well.

To cater to this niche, I created a special Golf Homes in Carlsbad page and am creating them for other granular San Diego communities as well to help serve this niche market better. 

Buyers seeking homes on golf courses are likely to be golfers who want the opportunity to golf and socialize frequently in their own back yards. Others may not golf, but love the views--especially if there's a water hole in sight. They enjoy the quiet activity of humans, and the wildlife that emerges at dusk and in early morning hours. It'a view that certainly beats looking into a neighbor's rear yard! 

These owners also have best seats in the house when or if a PGA or LPGA tournament comes through.

There are some potential hazards, though, that come with living on a golf course. The big one is the potential for broken windows due to some errant slice or hook. Those homes in the line of fire can often by spotted via the protective fencing that shields the windows. Sometimes, battered owners take it to the extreme, as at one home on the course at Lake San Marcos where owners put full protective fencing over and around their entire back yard. (And yes, said home was listed for sale.)

In fact, California has an Errant Golf Ball Disclosure that we provide to anyone buying near a golf course--much to the amusement of out-of-area buyers. But it's necessary to protect owners and their agents from potential litigation related to potential damage from bad shots and errant golf balls.

Do you have special provisions or disclosures for your golf home buyers?

Thanks, Laura! Not sure of the Feng Shui implications of living on a golf course but assume it woud be auspicious as long as golf balls aren't flying through windows!
