Why Buy Land in a Gated Community

Why Buy Land in a gated Community

“In its modern form, a gated community (or walled community) is a form of residential community or housing estate containing strictly controlled entrances for pedestrians, bicycles, and cars and it’s often characterized by a closed perimeter of walls and fences. Gated communities usually consist of small residential streets and include various shared amenities. These amenities may include only a park or other common area. For larger communities, it may be possible for residents to stay within the community for most daily activities.”

  • Privacy – Some gated communities are tucked away in the leafy suburbs that are less populated, less conspicuous, away from noisy areas, roads with strict access to the compound. This offers a greater feeling of privacy and creating an air of exclusivity. People with children have a safe playing environment for their kids to run around and play. This also provides a real sense of a home to residents.
  • Sense of community – People living in gated communities end up developing a greater sense of community amongst them. This is because of the controlled access to the compounds. Neighbours are normally familiar with each other, they know who stays where what belongs to whom and who is a stranger this results in greater freedom in trusting and enjoying familiarity with each other.
  • Gated communities are secure – These properties offer residents security that they wouldn’t experience in non-gated communities. Furthermore, they have controlled entry that offers residents assurance of their own safety and that of their premises.
  • Amenities are available to the residents exclusively – Apart from security, another popular feature of gated communities is the exclusive facilities such as recreational facilities e.g. swimming pools, and playgrounds that the community may agree to put up in their common areas making the area attractive both to the internal and external communities.
  • Rules and codes of conduct – after investors come together in gated communities they agree on a set of rules and regulations that each one of them adheres to. These rules are important as they require everyone to take care of their homes and surrounding property, which helps to keep the appearance and value of the community up to their required standard.
