The Benefits of a Gated Community

If you’re a 55+ homebuyer currently searching for a new home in DFW, you’ve likely noticed the seemingly endless list of communities catering to the active adult lifestyle. But not many of these neighborhoods also offer this incredible perk: gated community living.

A gated community is a residential community featuring a large fence or gate that requires a remote or code to gain entry into the neighborhood. In addition to added security, there are a number of benefits to living in a gated community you may not have initially considered.

Ladera develops 55+ gated communities throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Learn more about some of the advantages of living in a gated community.

Increased Property Value

The extra level of security provided in a gated DFW community also pays off in your investment. The property value of homes in gated communities are typically higher since gated communities are perceived as being safer and more secure.

More Privacy

Tired of solicitors knocking on your door or worried about porch pirates prowling through your neighborhood? Gated communities provide more privacy and security since only verified guests with homeowner access codes can gain entry.

Lock-and-Leave Living

If you’re nearing retirement age and your dream is to travel and enjoy life outside of the home more, a gated community is a natural part of the lock-and-leave lifestyle. No more worrying about the lawn or house when you go on a trip – the HOA takes care of this for you and a gated community keeps trespassers away.

Close-Knit Community

Ladera designs all of our gated communities as smaller enclaves of homes. This allows homeowners to get to know all of their neighbors and take advantage of community amenities like exercise equipment and pickleball courts without a long wait to use them.

Catered to Your Lifestyle

Another amazing advantage of living in a gated community is the access to desirable amenities. All Ladera DFW communities cater to the 55+ active adult lifestyle and include amenity centers with exercise rooms, gathering spaces, kitchens, pools, pickleball courts and putting greens, grills, lounging areas, and walking trails.

A gated DFW community is not only a good investment but it’s also the ideal place to achieve low-maintenance living as you enter a new phase of life. Ladera builds stunning new homes in gated communities in Fort Worth, Mansfield, Rockwall, Prosper, and coming soon to Little Elm.
