You’ll probably need assistance in finding the type of golf community that is right for you.  If you’re looking for a 55+ golf community, keep in mind the area you choose should have residents who share some of the same interests as you do. 

When you choose a golf community to live in, you’ll want to look for a few things:

  1. Location – When looking at Bloomfield Hills homes in golf course communities, you always want to be aware of location.  For instance, are the nearby roads easy to navigate?  Is it close to shopping?  Are there arts and cultural activities close by?
  2. Security – Be sure the community is security conscious.  Often, golf course communities have the added security of a gated community
  3. Amenities – Find out what amenities the golf course community has.  Determine if they’re important to you and worth the extra cost.  Is there an indoor golf course? Do you want tennis courts? How about restaurants?  Swimming pool?  Exercise facilities?
  4. Home location – When you find the right golf course community, you need to pay attention to the homes within the community.  Think about factors like how close the home is to the entrance or to the fairways. Are you willing to risk a golf ball hitting a window once in a while? These are questions you need to ask yourself when choosing Bloomfield Hills real estate in a golf community.
  5. Rules – Another thing you should be aware of before making your purchase is the golf community’s homeowner association’s rules and regulations, often called CC&Rs, regarding home improvements, additions, etc. You should also look into golf course annual membership fees and know what they’ll be.

Many people are looking for their perfect home in popular golf communities. Living in one of these communities provides many perks such as golfing as much as you want any day of the week.  Do your research before purchasing and you won’t have any surprises down the road.
