Hello, Retired older couple looking for a nice home in Hampton Golf Village or Windermere Golf Club. Both of these Georgia golf course communities appear online to have nice homes for sale at reasonable prices. We can only see so much in the pictures online, and will also be going to GA to take a look as well. We are relocating from California and plan on moving to Georgia very soon. Cost of living is more attractive in Georgia and so are the politics overall (as compared to CA). What we would like is your help in comparing Hampton and Windermere, so that we can make the best choice in where we would want to live. Safety, tranquility, a community pool, tennis courts, and good sidewalks for strolling are desired. We want a house in a nice quiet golf course community, with pleasant conservative neighbor homeowners who maintain their properties nicely (and no car projects in the front yard, vehicles parked everywhere, and RV's/trailers dotting the landscape). Both golf courses seem to have similar costs of HOA etc. But Hampton homes look to be less costly than those in Windermere. Are there specific reasons for the lower cost, is it the quality of the neighborhood overall, or the way the Association manages, or is it just the distance from Atlanta and nearby amenities available? Please compare and share your insights, opinions, thoughts, and facts - to help this older retired couple decide which golf course is best for us & would be the best investment for resale values. Thank you so much & all input is welcome!

Both Hampton Golf Village and Windermere Golf Club are great communities where one really can't go wrong in either.

One of the major reasons why the homes in Hampton Golf Village are less costly than the homes in Windermere Golf Club is because of the farther distance from Atlanta and the relatively fewer amenities available at that farther distance out from Atlanta.

Hampton Golf Club is located in a more sparsely developed area about 47 miles north of Downtown Atlanta while Windermere Golf Club is located in a more heavily developed area closer to more amenities and large clusters of employment about 40 miles or so north of Downtown Atlanta.

Windermere is also located in an area (in the cluster of Forsyth County Schools anchored by the extremely highly-rated and highly-regarded South Forsyth High School) where the schools are in extremely high demand.

With the very highly-rated and highly-regarded schools, the closer proximity to more retail amenities and recreational amenities and the closer proximity to high-paying jobs in North Fulton and South Forsyth counties, Windermere is just simply located in an area that is in much higher demand than Hampton Golf Village.

Hampton Golf Village is located in an area of very good schools in the cluster of Forsyth County Schools anchored by North Forsyth High Schools, but the area where Windermere is located is just simply in much higher demand than the area where Hampton Golf Village is located... Which explains the higher home prices in Windermere than in Hampton Golf Village.
