The Benefits Of A Gated Recreational Community

Posted On: 17.08.21

There are many benefits to buying a lot in a gated recreational community. One of the most important benefits is better security and safety. In a secured community access is limited to residents and guests, there is less opportunity for unwanted visitors to enter the community. The results? Lower crime rates and it's easier to identify someone who shouldn't be there.  

More privacy and quieter surroundings are yet another plus in a secured recreational community. There is less traffic in a more secluded area and often a greater sense of community. Most gated communities are designed with the family lifestyle in mind so you don't have to worry about loud music or all night parties. There is also something about gated resort communities that offer a strong sense of belonging. Maybe, it’s the idea of exclusivity, the feeling that you are surrounded by people who share common interests. It's also safer for children to play within these communities meaning that parents will also experience a greater sense of peace and security. 

Another benefit to living in a gated community? When access is more exclusive the community amenities are often in better shape. When only residents and  invited guests are using amenities like a Recreation Centre, private beach, parks and trail,  these spaces are frequently better taken care of and experience less overall usage. Enhanced property value is also an important factor. Recreational property prices are typically higher than those in unsecured areas, and value is retained more easily retained over time. There is a more stringent standard of home quality, and stricter building codes that promote consistency in design. Plus, if the grounds of the gated resort are maintained by the community’s homeowner’s association, you can rest assured that your surroundings will also be well taken care of. That means more comparable sales and better value for owners within the community. Also, owners in these resorts generally have a higher pride of ownership, and keep their homes in better condition.
