Airport Residency - 10 Benefits of living in a gated community

My Magazine 2022/12

A gated community is a form of a housing estate or residential community that is guarded and enclosed within walls or fences. There are a number of gated communities developed by Swami India International Limited, such as Paradise Estate, Paradise View, Barakah Estate & Airport Residency and many more. Living in gated communities could be the right choice for you if you fancy having a quiet life equipped while still having access to all the modern facilities. Living in such private communities has benefits, making it a desirable residence choice. Today, we bring you some of the benefits of living in a gated community that might make you consider moving to such a place.

 

1. SAFETY AND SECURITY

If asked about the benefits of living in a gated community, what most people would say first, would be about safety and security. The idea of gated homes is to be in a closed-off and well-guarded surrounding. Gated communities usually have fixed entrance and exit points that are either manned or have electronic security. This means that only verified residents and guests can enter the community. The security gate ensures that trespassers or thieves do not get anywhere further than the gates. There will also be CCTV cameras for 24/7 surveillance, electronic fences, intercom systems, etc.

 

2. EXTRA PRIVACY

What follows safety and security when it comes to the advantages of living in a gated community is the extra privacy that it provides. As the community only gives residents and verified guests access, you can have your space away from any hustle, intruders or trespassers. You can go about your daily life without worrying about the outside world. This exclusivity is one of the key factors attracting public figures or celebrities to a gated community living.

 

3. A SENSE OF COMMUNITY

Another one of the pleasant benefits of living in a gated community is the sense of community that it elicits. There's an unspoken understanding between the residents. Many of the communities hold community events or festivals. The controlled communal facilities help you get to know your neighbours, which results in a sense of familiarity and trust among the residents.

 

4. INTEGRATED LIFESTYLE & LEISURE FACILITIES

One of the very convenient pros of living in a gated community is the access to a number of amenities. Gated communities usually offer facilities such as tennis courts, kids play ground, parks, jogging tracks and more, as well as swimming pools and gyms. This is a perk you would benefit from a gated community living which would otherwise cost you an exorbitant amount of money. Such a well-integrated community with shared facilities makes for a comfortable living.

 

5. HIGHER HOME STANDARDS

The people who live in gated communities tend to take pride in their homes. Additionally, there are often rules to ensure that residents don't allow their homes or yards to become untidy or create weird outdoor displays. The neighbourhood roads, lawn areas and plants are usually well-managed and maintained.

 

5. NO SOLICITORS

Another additional benefit of living in a gated community is that you won’t have to worry about solicitors anymore. The fact that you can restrict or allow entry to whoever you want into the community makes it a safe place from solicitations. This increased sense of freedom and control is a great plus and can save you from the havoc and frustration that come from solicitors such as salesmen or unauthorised people asking for donations.

 

6. NO TRAFFIC OR SPEEDING VEHICLES

The fact that these communities are gated itself brings a lot of benefits. One such advantage that adds to the benefits of living in a gated community is the absence of regular traffic or speeding vehicles. This factor also adds to the safety of living in a gated community. You will not have to worry about the constant bustle and traffic noise. Life in a gated community brings a wonderful sense of peace and quietness away from the usual city buzz of today’s technology-driven world.

 

7. BETTER PROPERTY VALUE

The cost of living in a gated community is one thing that makes people turn their heads away from considering it. However, that is only sometimes the case; numerous affordable gated communities are available. Further, gated communities usually have better property value, especially when it is from a trusted developer. If you are considering buying a home in a gated community to sell, later on, this is an added advantage.

 

8. A SAFE HAVEN FOR CHILDREN

One of the greatest advantages of living in a gated community is for families with kids. While the benefits can be reaped by singles and families alike, the safety and security in gated communities are especially good for the little ones with aspirations for exploring. Since there are no open roads with moving traffic, it is safer to allow your kids to play outdoors; you wouldn’t have to worry about them bumping into strangers either. With communal areas set for the kids to play, it is also easier for parents to monitor them.

 

10. GREENER ENVIRONMENT

Gated communities have a greener environment in general. Once again, with the absence of moving traffic or outsiders, gated communities are far less susceptible to pollution. With its regular maintenance and controlled facilities, a breath of fresh air is always at your doorstep.
