Four Advantages of a Gated Community
One of the most important factors involved with living in a gated community is the peace and quiet. Neighborhoods with open access can, and often do, have the potential for excess and unnecessary traffic that adds noise pollution. A gated community tends to have only minimal traffic as residents and their guests come and go without the potential added hassle of other drivers passing through. The results should equate to a very quiet neighborhood where rush hour isn’t much different than the middle of the night when it comes to noise.
Privacy is an obvious attractive quality for a gated community. A guard posted at the gate, or simply a gated entryway that requires a code to gain access, may reduce the exposure of individuals who do not have honest intentions to be in your community.
3. Property Value
The houses built within a gated community are often on the upper end in regards to design, beauty, quality and price. Being located within a community, houses have a better chance of gaining property value and tend to be steady during market fluctuations. Because of these factors, houses in a gated community are thought to be better investments than some other types of housing, giving gated communities a significant advantage.
4. Children Playing
Many families find comfort in knowing the people living or visiting behind the gates find a special connectivity and create calmer traffic patterns. Everyone want to know their neighbors are looking out for their children and extend the same courtesy to others.
