​Baton Rouge Golf Course Homes Produce Higher Real Estate Values? 

​Baton Rouge Golf Course Homes Produce Higher Real Estate Values?  | Baton Rouge Real Estate News | Scoop.it
Golf course communities receive increased home valuations from more appraisers overall. There are three types of golf neighborhoods; public, private, and semi-private. Through the examination of variou
Baton Rouge Real Estate News's insight:

This is from a national article: Golf Course Homes Produce Higher Real Estate Values? 
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/golf-course-homes-produce-higher-035200644.html 

Is this true for Greater Baton Rouge?  
In general yes, for communities like Santa Maria, Pelican Point, Beaver Creek and say, Country Club of Louisiana.  I'm not certain about Copper Mill Golf Community. 

NOTE: As long as the golf course remains popular and operational. In Baton Rouge, we've seen some older golf courses shutdown and in 1 case, the old golf course became new subdivisions in the backyards of homeowners that used to have golf course views....Green Trails at Shenandoah.  The Fairwood Estates Subdivision golf course shutdown and is becoming both new residential and commercial uses.  Over time when course get older in age, I'm seeing less of a value push.

Baton Rouge Real Estate News's insight:
13 Things That Will Trash Your Home's Value - Business Insider - As A Baton Rouge Home Appraiser, I absolutely agree
 
HOADERS or MESSY NEIGHBORS
There seems to be at least 1 to 3 in each local subdivision now - deadbeats that should live on a rural 1/2 acre in the country with all of their junk instead of in a restricted subdivision. Those that just don't care. I'm not talking about disabled homeowners who can't maintain their yard.
 
After this flood, will all homeowners properly remove junk in yards and turn white front yards from drywall dust back to green yards. I know it will take some time. It's just more difficult now because at the beginning, Parishes were picking up piles of trash. However, post recovery also creates piles of trash needing pickup and that's not always happening in cash strapped Parishes.
 
*BAD SCHOOLS
 
*UNUSUAL COLORS - maybe chartreuse or fluorescent blues
 
*CITY DUMPS, POWER PLANTS & CHEMICAL PLANTS - part of the reason home prices are so low in 70805 & 70807
 
*NOISY NEIGHBORS - it's one thing to have an annual July 4th loud party, once a year. It's another thing to have a loud party a few times per month or that neighbor blaring their music while waxing their car. I saw this in Woodlawn Estates last weekend...neighbors used to be considerate.
 
*REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS
 
*CERTAIN RENOVATIONS - some homeowners just like over improve...and over improve without knowing they don't know. I like these renovations shows on TV, but they make homeowners go overboard sometimes.
 
*TOO MANY UPGRADES - potential buyers just don't want or have the extra time to maintain these
 
*NOISE POLLUTION
