When searching to buy a home, there are many different factors to consider. In addition to the location and city you want live in, you also have to think about the neighborhood or community in which your home will be located.
If you’re looking for extra security, a gated community may be the right choice for you, but chances are you will also be living in a community governed by a homeowners association (HOA). Though there are rules, regulations, and added fees that come with living in an HOA, there are many benefits that many find desirable.
If security is your number one concern, consider these additional benefits that come with living in a gated community:
