When looking for a new home, one of the top priorities for a homebuyer is location. Whatever our tastes, urban, suburban, or rural, everyone wants to live someplace that suits our preferences, where we feel safe living and raising our families. To achieve these goals, homebuyers can do ample area research on things such as school ratings, resell values, and crime statistics.
People often view the main benefit of a gated community to be the security it provides. While there are many other benefits, this is certainly a positive aspect of the community. Though there is no way to prevent all crime in any community, a gated community adds an extra level of security by helping to restrict uninvited visitors from entering.

Gated communities are also able to invest more in neighborhood amenities like pools, clubhouses and walking trails. While a non-gated community is often limited to providing amenities that can be cheaply maintained and secured, since it is harder to limit access to residents, gated communities find that they can invest more into amenities without these concerns.
Finally, gated communities are often more close-knit in spirit. Even when these neighborhoods enjoy large acreage homesites, residents often find that it is easier to know who your neighbors are and to enjoy a greater sense of community. And one will find, ultimately, that this end-result of knowing and caring about your neighbors often provides as many benefits as those provided by your community gates.
