It’s no secret that purchasing a home is a big decision. It will be where you potentially raise a family, retire or just seek solace on vacation. Whatever your reason for thinking about a new house, consider this: buying into a gated community.
Luxurious amenities like tennis courts and pools make these spaces feel more like a spa than a neighborhood, and the well-appointed grand gated entrances are a welcoming reminder to you and your guests that they are entering a truly special place. Here’s you should look for in a world-class community:
1. Location, location, location
Just as you would with any home, finding a gated community that’s in an area you enjoy is important. If you’re not happy with your surroundings, both in the community and outside, your house won’t feel like a home. Visit the community and take a day or long weekend to explore the neighboring town to make sure you’ll love it.
2. Amenities you’ll use
Aside from the incredible sense of safety that you’ll get from a gated community, resort-style amenities are a huge draw, too. From swimming pools to tennis courts, lake access and fitness centers, the amenities in a gated community really enhance your neighborhood experience. If you’re bored, you must be doing something wrong, or looking at the wrong community!
3. Builders you can trust
If you’re building a home from scratch, you’re going to do your research on construction companies and the home designers. You should do the same for builders in gated communities.
Make sure they have a solid reputation of good construction and customer service. They should also have numerous years of building under their belt — that way, you can see what they’ve done and how their homes have held up. Additionally, be sure you actually like the style of homes that are offered in the community.
