Looking to Buy A Golf Course in MA?
Recently I went out to take photos for my company to shoot the Grand View Country Club which just went on the market for sale. I’m not too familiar with the golf market, but I doubt these type of opportunities come up that often. Here is the listing description:
“Grand View Country Club is a beautiful 9-Hole public golf course only a short 45 miles from Boston. The property boasts a massive clubhouse containing 2 large banquet halls, restaurant, and maintenance facility. The property sits on over 190 acres of well-kept land with sprawling hilltop views of the surrounding area and Wachusett Mountian. On a clear day you can see the Boston Skyline from the clubhouse. Plenty of land for an 18-hole expansion. The two banquet rooms can accommodate parties of well over 200and include very unique, hand-carved mahogany furniture fit for any special occasion and a Brazilian cherry wood dance floor. A large hand-laid stone patio and gazebo can serve as the perfect place for wedding ceremonies. The 12,000+/- SF maintenance facility can house all equipment necessary to service the course and includes 24 golf carts.”
If you or anyone you know is looking for a unique opportunity. I can get you more information.
Yesterday I drove out to Newton to shoot a house that is a total “fixer upper”. The last renovation looks like it was the 1950’s but still, I needed to show that it has potential and that the “bones”are good. The one thing buyers need to know by the photos, is that the property is worth checking out even though the home is a “gut job” and sold “as is”. Real Estate Agents think hiring a photographer for this type of property is a waste of money, but seriously, it can help!! I looked at MLS and noticed this particular listing has been listed 3 times before by other agents, but nobody took the time to get professional photography.
Here is the Gallery of old photo attempts. Notice the point and shoot grace, low res charm, and unique angles. Yikes!
Here are the ones I took for the listing. I only took 5 because these were the only rooms that were shot worthy. They aren’t award winning interior shots, nor will they go into my personal portfolio, but I think they make a world of difference.
Good luck to 310 Highand St. Hope the photo’s help! The market is much stronger than it was last time this listing was for sale and my guess is it sells quickly.
