Gated vs Non-Gated Communities in Delray Beach FL

Gated vs Non Gated Communities in Delray Beach FL

 

gated communities vs non gated communities in delray beach flPeople are often confused when they come to Delray Beach FL, or one of the neighboring cities, about where to buy a home.  They've seen commercials on TV, their friends have told them about this or that community, but they're really not sure.  It can definitely be overwhelming, especially if you're not familiar with the area.

 

Some people prefer a house on the street.  That's easy enough, if you know the area you want to live in,  and we have them here.  No homeowner's associations to worry about.  No rules to follow, except those set by the city or county and no monthly fees.   

 

Other people prefer gated communities, which are definitely a way of life in south Florida.  However, there are several types of gated communities; there are unmanned gated communities, manned gated communities, all-age gated communities, country clubs and 55+ gated communities.  Whew!  That's a lot to take in!

 

buyer's agent in boynton beach floridaThere are tons of listings online, but which community is right for you?  That's why it's always best to work with a buyer's agent, someone who will listen to your specific needs and help you find what you're looking for, because they know all the communities. 

 

The builder isn't going to tell you that the community up the street may be better suited for you than the one you walked into.  He just wants to sell you a house.   And the best part - there is NO CHARGE to work with a buyer's agent.  They get paid by the seller.  Buyer's agents work for you - the buyer!

 

Back to gated communities in Delray Beach, FL, there are resales everywhere.  Do you prefer a manned gated community or an unmanned gated community?  Your monthly maintenance fee is going to be affected by having the guard because, after all, he has to have health insurance, too.  For some people, they like the feeling of security a gated community brings, the clubhouse, pool, etc.

 

If you have dogs or cats, this is going to come into play, depending on their size and how many in gated communities.  Always do your homework on this.  You can start by reading pet friendly gated communities in Boca Raton.

 

gated communities in delray beach that are dog friendly and cat friendlyDepending on the type of gated community will dictate what amenities the community may offer.  The Bridges in Delray Beach is a new type of gated community complete with full amenities and a restaurant.  Most gated communities, except for some 55+ and country clubs, do not have restaurants.  It's all ages and pet friendly (my favorite!)  You can find homes for sale in The Bridges by clicking on that link.

 

Whatever your friends recommended, whatever you saw on TV, listen and then see for yourself.  Find your comfort zone because, after all, it's going to be you who will be living there with your furry friends (or without!)
