The Benefits of Living in a Gated Community



A gated community can be comprised of single-family homes, townhomes, villas, condos, apartments, or any combination of housing options. The common feature of these neighborhoods is the restricted access created by a locked gate at the entrance. The gate might be monitored by a closed-circuit camera or on-site security guard. Residents activate the gate with a code or remote control. Some homeowners only choose these types of communities for a variety of reasons. If you’re searching for a new home, Hunter Quinn Homes wants you to understand the benefits of living in a gated community.

Reduced traffic. Once you pass through the gate, you’ll notice the lack of vehicles moving up and down the streets. There’s no through-traffic when there’s only one entrance and exit and the cars are limited to your neighbors and their guests.

Higher property value. The homes built in a gated community reflect a higher status than those in an ungated one. The residences are high quality and the exteriors are usually pristine, as they are guided by the mandates of a homeowners association or maintained by a property management group. The investment in this attention to the community protects and often increases property value.

Quality amenities. Neighborhoods that are secured by a gated entrance frequently offer community features to the people who live there. It’s not uncommon to have a resort-style clubhouse, swimming pool, fitness center, and other amenities, like tennis courts, playgrounds, walking and biking trails.
