How Private Gated Communities Provide Safety

Living in a safe community can reduce stress, promote peace, and improve your overall well-being. And of course, when you live in a truly safe neighborhood, you can better protect your family from crime making safety an important factor to consider when searching for a new home.

If you’re wondering “are gated communities safer,” read on to learn the safety benefits of living in a gated community:

A Guarded/Gated Entrance

Upon visiting private communities, you’ll notice gates guarding the entrance. The front entrance of Terravita’s private home community is not only gated but guarded by security patrol 24/7. Some communities don’t have any keypads or passcodes, rather, security has the ability to control guest access. This method provides a more effective way to let in those you want and keep out those you don’t. This is in addition to a strict no solicitor policy within the community. As a result, the gates and entrance security prevent non-residents from accessing the private community, protect residents from unwelcome guests and solicitors, minimize foot and car traffic, and allow the communities to remain quiet and peaceful.

Safe Places for Physical Activity

Because they’re enclosed and well-kept, private communities also provide a safe environment for being active and spending time outdoors. Many private communities also contain a swimming pool, a golf course, and a trail system. Some private communities even have a community fitness center with reliable, state-of-the-art equipment and personal trainers who will help you exercise properly. As a result, private communities can protect and promote your overall health and well being.

Caring Neighbors

Many private communities sponsor clubs and events to encourage residents to socialize and bond with one another. Thanks to these private social gatherings, a sense of camaraderie and trust exist throughout these communities. Consequently, residents often become dear friends who appreciate and help one another. So if you ever need a house-sitter for the weekend, you can always turn to your neighbors for support.
