Bottom Line:

Naples FL Golf CommunitiesIf you are buying a home in a golf community, you will find it’s more complex than a typical home purchase.  As you can probably imagine, there are significant differences between golf communities.  There are many different fee structures, membership options, pet restrictions, demographics and many other details that apply to the SWFL golf communities.

Also, if you are considering new construction, remember the contractor’s real estate agent represents the builder’s best interest, not yours.  There is no cost to you to have an agent represent you. In fact, I may be able to help you save money and negotiate for extras which the builder may not let you know about.
