Good or Bad? Luxury Golf Real Estate Investment in Florida

January 23, 2014

With many short sales, bank owned properties and even foreclosures still plaguing the region’s real estate market, it’s difficult to find the right income property – especially when it comes to vacation rentals. Fortunately, a luxury golf real estate investment property in Florida can help an owner rake in serious cash, provided it’s in a prime location with a pristine clubhouse facilities and links. Add some additional amenities like proximity to the ocean, and it’s that much better.

For example, if you’re looking to build your dream home or purchase a luxury real estate property – particularly in one of the many tawny golf resort estate communities in Palm Beach, Palm Coast, Boca or Naples – the potential is quite high to buy a wonderful property for a great price, lease it out for a rental income well into the six figures and steadily watch its value increase over time. After all, beachfront and waterfront properties never go out of style – and with the increasing number of boomers looking to retire in style, amenity-filled communities show no sign of losing their luster, at least not into the foreseeable future.

A luxury golf real estate investment property in Florida should come with certain bells and whistles in order to help ensure itself as a worthy investment. Obviously, being that it’s centered around golf, a beautifully manicured course (or courses) and a swank clubhouse are absolute necessities. The community should most preferably rest behind gates and provide around-the-clock security. Access to the outside world is also a must, although the area should also be laid out in such a way that it feels a world apart. Culture, restaurants, recreation (beyond golf) and activities are also valuable to buyers.

As for the property itself, in order to qualify as a luxury real estate investment in Florida, the home should boast at least 5,000 square feet of living space – and, being that it’s located in Florida, outdoor space should also be vast and well appointed, with a pool, plenty of verandas and porch space, gardens, private walkways to the beach and perhaps even an outdoor kitchen.

If it’s on the waterfront – or even if it backs up to the 9th hole of a golf course – the home should maximize the sunshine that gives the “sunshine state” its moniker to full advantage, with big, bright windows and a breezy open floor plan to help you take it all in. And, a solid real estate investment in Florida should provide ample living space for out of town guests – since the home will most likely beckon snowbirds of the friend and family variety to take a respite every once in a while.

To find such a property, you could go the traditional route and search the traditional real estate listings or simply do a web search for ‘luxury golf real estate in Florida’. However, one of the more exciting ways to get into the luxury real estate game is via an absolute real estate auction. Quite a few luxury golf community homes are being sold this way – both as a means of guaranteeing the home will be sold on the auction date to a qualified buyer but also as a way for luxury real estate investors to potentially win a bid on a stunning home at market value. For example, on February 6th, Supreme Auctions will be selling a stunning beachfront retreat in the exclusive community of Hammock Beach in Florida’s own, Palm Coast. The absolute auction of the 5,800 square foot, 6 bedroom, 6 and a half bath residence, which features another 2,000 square feet of outdoor space, an onsite media room, heated pool, gourmet kitchen and countless other amenities, too numerous to mention, presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an ocean-side retreat at your own price. Not only does it check all of the boxes of what a luxury golf real estate investment in Florida should be, it even boasts membership to the exclusive four-star Hammock Beach Resort.
