A lot of people choose to purchase a home in a gated community due to the extra security that a gate provides. When a community is gated, vehicle access is restricted to a limited number of people who are allowed to be there. Some gated communities are manned by a security guard at the gate, while others require knowing a code in order to enter.
Unlike urban and suburban streets, the streets in gated communities typically do not have a lot of traffic. This is a great benefit for families with children, as they can allow their children to play outside or ride bikes without having to worry about vehicles speeding or numerous cars passing down the street on a daily basis.
Gated communities are highly desirable, which helps keep home values high. In most cases, gated communities are managed by a home owners association so the grounds are well-maintained. Residents of a gated community also tend to be great neighbors and care about the neighborhood, which makes gated communities even more appealing.
