After years of trying unsuccessfully to list my home on my own, I finally realized that I needed some serious help. I began looking for a great real estate agent who could help me out, and after interviewing a few professionals I found someone that was really in tune with what I needed. They sat down with me to talk about my needs and worked hard to help me to identify different homes that could work for my family. I wanted to make a blog all about selecting the perfect agent to work with during your house hunt. Check out this blog for great tips on choosing agents.
Choosing to purchase a home in gated community is a great option for you and your family. Here are three reasons to buy a gated community home.
One of the best reasons to move into a gate community is the level of safety that gated communities provide. The fence or wall essentially goes around the entire community and the only gate is at the opening of the neighborhood. To get inside, you must have the password, the code, a fingerprint scan, or something else to indicate identity. In any case, only those who are allowed to be in the neighborhood can get inside. If you live in a city or suburb where crime is an issue, then a gated community is something to strongly consider in order to keep your family safe. This allows you to feel safer not only inside of your home, but also when you and your kids are in your backyard or walking around your neighborhood.
A lot of gated communities also offer you some excellent amenities. There may be a great pool that is shared among the neighborhood and is maintained by the HOA. You may also have some different sports areas, such as a basketball court, tennis court, volleyball sand pit, soccer field, and more. There will likely be one or more playgrounds for the children to enjoy playing on, which is excellent because these are located so close to your home and because you know they are safe. A large clubhouse will also likely be located within the gated community, and this can be used for large gatherings and events. You simply just need to reserve it beforehand to ensure it isn't already booked.
Fewer Cars Driving Around
If you live in a gated community, you don't have to worry about a great deal of traffic. This is due to the fact that only the cars of people who live in the neighborhood or have guest access to the neighborhood will be able to drive around it. This makes the neighborhood much more peaceful for you because you won't hear cars driving past your home all of the time. Also, because the roads aren't busy with cars all of the time, it also reduces your worry that your children and/or pets will be run over by a vehicle if they accidentally get in the road.
A gated community is an excellent place to purchase a home if you want to live somewhere that is safe, offers great neighborhood amenities, and has fewer cars driving around it.
