Guard Gated and Gated Communities
There are many guard gated and gated communities in the Las Vegas Valley. Master-planned communities usually have at least one guard-gated and several gated communities within them. Golf course communities are usually guard-gated. Active adult 55+ communities are a mixture of guard-gated and gated, and also open access. Condominiums and townhouses are about 20% guard-gated, 70% gated and 10% are full access.
Are Guard Gated and Gated Communities Common?
Guard gated and gated communities are not as common among older neighborhoods. In the past 30 years, guard gated communities are the safer more expensive choice. Guard Gated Communities are typically in more affluent neighborhoods with luxury homes, and there are quite a few in Las Vegas and Henderson. Some have CCR’s that are stricter than others but most are very good. The best thing about having guards is that they also patrol the neighborhoods. If you want a more secure lifestyle, consider a guard-gated community.
Gated communities without guards are extremely common in the valley. I’ll also provide links for those below too. Feel free to research homes and if at any time you want to see one, let us know. Most homes in a guard gated community lllwineed a 24-hour notice for showings. Call us to schedule an appointment or a home consultation at 702-750-7599.
Living In Gated Communities
Among homebuyers, both guard gated and gated communities are very popular in the Las Vegas Valley. Living in a gated community adds prestige to a home and will add about $100 a month to your Homeowners
Association bill. Besides a gate, there will be a wireless entry system where visitors will enter your code, and the system calls you for access.
No matter where you live, a gated access is not a guaranteed security feature; however, it is a deterrent. Having lived in a few communities with gates, I can say that the biggest problem is when someone tries to force a gate open. Most communities have service contracts that will repair the gates, but you may have to wait a day or two.
We have lived in both guard gated and gated communities, so we know how both operate. If you have questions about living in either a guard gated or gated communities, feel free to ask- 702-750-7599
