Gated Communities in Florida and Throughout The Country Grow in Popularity
We close our curtains at night for the sake of privacy and lock our doors to prevent intruders’ access. We build fences around our yards to protect our pets and our property. And some of us live in gated communities for the same reasons, but on a wider scale.
Gated communities in Florida and throughout the country have become commonplace fixtures on our residential landscapes with an increasing number of people finding the added layer of security and focused amenities worth the added expense.
We at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Clubprovide a finely tailored set of services geared to active lifestyles and luxurious living. But what makes gated communities so attractive?
The Truth About Realty explains the reasons why gated communities are growing in popularity:
- Security ranks near the top of the list. As a private community, it is difficult for outsiders to gain access. Crime rates are generally far lower in gated communities and solicitors are rarely able to roam the streets.
- Traffic is a big plus for living in a gated community. With restricted access, streets are generally far quieter, safer and make it easier for bicycle traffic and for children’s play.
- Quality of homes is usually several notches higher in gated communities. With developers fashioning unique and quality communities in a competitive real estate market, homes are usually built far above local governments’ building codes, better building materials are typically used and the communities’ overall design is built to accommodate residents’ comfort, tastes and preferences. Homeowners also typically have a greater sense of neighborhood pride.
Here are some of the reasons why Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club members enjoy their community so much:
