Luxury home buyers seek the privacy and security of gated communities. Many suburbs and neighborhoods in the Dallas area offer gated and/or guardhouse communities. They offer an extra sense of safety and security that you don’t find in an open neighborhood. The seclusion of a gated neighborhood allows for an added layer of exclusivity, quality, and reduction of traffic noise. They also usually offer amenities and recreation for residents such as pools, courts and clubhouses. If you like the sense of community, exclusivity and privacy, consider moving to a gated community.
