Gated Community Homes for Sale
The rise in popularity of gated community living across the United States has sparked the interest of a much wider audience than in the past.
Often times when we think of Gated Communities expensive homes, exclusivity, safety, security come to our minds, and of course the bigger question; What lies beyond those gates? Nevertheless due to popularity, Gated Communities are no longer for the rich but several moderately priced versions of the gated community concept have risen in many areas of the country in recent years.
Single Family Residential Gated Communities
The benefit most residents look for in a Gated Community is the security element, Due to the fact that Gated Communities are private, criminal activity is greatly reduced and solicitors are virtually eliminated. Traffic and speeding cars, a danger for children at play, are also significantly lowered as you won’t likely have that morning or evening commute rushing along short cut thoroughfares.
Traditionally gated communities have been made up of exclusive luxury single family homes and of course Charlotte is no exception and has plenty of communities in different areas of town. Moreover many of them are built around specific recreational or aesthetic pleasures such a Golf Courses, Tennis Clubs, Waterfront Homes, or majestic Mountain Views. Such amenities can bring significant social benefits for home owners.
Condominium Gated Communities
In addition to the traditional single family communities, in recent years there has been an upswing in Condo and Townhouse Gated Communities as well. In the Charlotte area, many Condo Complexes offer gated entrances and parking, doormen, and within in some communities residents that are security professionals. If you live alone, there is also great benefit living in proximity with many other people; in an emergency, you’ll have plenty of help near by.
