Benefits to a Gated Community in New Braunfels
The number one reason that many are attracted to the concept of a gated community is the sense of safety it provides. Gated communities protect their residents against vandals and thieves, and can control the number of random people walking through the area. In private residential areas, neighbors tend to be familiar with one another living behind the same gates. A plus? These toes of communities have incredibly low crime rates!
Speeding is among the most common issue that leads to incidents in neighborhoods. Vehicles that turn from a main road into the entrance of a neighborhood oftentimes drive too fast, not taking into account children playing nearby, residents walking, or other vehicles backing out of their driveway. When living in gated communities, drivers are required to stop before entering the neighborhood, allowing them time to become more aware of the environment and reset their speed to that of an appropriate one when cruising residential streets. Fun fact: many gated communities can hand out speeding tickets, resulting in a safer environment for both pedestrians and children.
Control of Access
There is no greater emphasis on safety in a community than in a gated one. Guard-gated communities feature controlled access, meaning anyone who wants in or out has to have proof of residency or have a friend/family member of the neighborhood let them in. These types of communities have security cameras—along with a record of who enters and leaves the community—increasing a sense of safety. Gated communities enjoy less traffic and a great awareness as to who comes and goes.
Residents of gated communities will find because of a safe controlled environment, neighbors share more trust. This can relieve daily stresses on the safety of family members, especially children, and your property. Gated communities even allow for get-togethers held within the gates, bringing residents closer together. Many who move into a gated community will find neighbors welcoming and willing to meet others and spend time with them!
Overview: Gated communities tend to follow an HOA (Home Owners Association) that monitors the design, construction, and general appearance of a home. This will regulate the chances of an unsightly house, or unkempt yards. When an unspoken understanding forms between residents of a gated community, you will be well watched out for, resulting in a higher sale value of your home. It’s a win-win for everybody.
