Why Choose a Gated Community?

A Sense of Security

One of the biggest reasons residents choose gated communities is for the safety that comes with restricted road access and/or private security.

The Potential for Lifestyle Amenities

Many gated communities, especially in the Tallahassee area, are built around a particular lifestyle and offer complementary amenities, such as swimming pools, tennis courts, or even golf courses or equestrian facilities.

An Organized Homeowner's Association

Aside from gates or walls, one of the most defining characteristics of gated or private communities is the Homeowners Association (HOA). The HOA is made up of all the owners of the development and is responsible for the collection of the Association Dues, as well as creating and enforcing the "rules" of the community. It is also often responsible for maintaining the public aspects of the community, such as streets, security, parks, etc.

The rules set by the HOA can vary a great deal depending on the community. Typically, the HOA will have rules pertaining ot the upkeep and appearance of homes within the development, specifying the colors of the paint on outside walls, types of fencing, landscaping, and storage of boats or recreational vehicles.

Protected Property Values

Prime land, combined with careful planning, HOA rules, and high demand create an environment where home values hold up extremely well.
