Golf Courses and Residential House Prices: An Empirical Examination
AbstractThe importance of location is well known in the literature on real estate valuation. Our study extends this body of literature by being first to examine empirically the effect on the selling price of single-family residential properties when they abut a golf course. We determine the incremental effect on the sales price of houses on the golf course by fitting a standard hedonic pricing model to a sample of 717 sales transactions drawn from a suburban area of a large city. We employ a matched-pair research design to hold constant the price effects of other location factors on these golf course properties. Our results indicate that a golf course location adds 7.6 percent to a property's sales price. We believe this finding is of interest to developers in their design of a golf course subdivision and to appraisers who wish to make location-specific value adjustments of golf course properties.
