Why gated communities can be beneficial for raising a child

Choosing where to live is a tough decision parents face, often centered around their children’s welfare. They consider play areas, nearby schools, local hospitals, and public transport accessibility. Sometimes, parents view gated communities as the best option for raising children.


Luckily, there are several properties in California that provide the same features without that huge dollar sign, like our mobile homes in Bakersfield, California, the Riverdale Village as an example. To further help you decide whether to move into a gated community or not, allow us to give you the top 5 reasons why raising a child in this kind of environment could be your best option:


  1. Safety and Security

Guards protect gated communities 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Their round-the-clock patrolling makes the property a safe haven for children who want to play outdoors.  It also gives parents relief that their homes are safe and guarded against unwanted elements. Children are also safe from strangers who might bring harm to the neighborhood.


  1. Kids can be Kids

In gated communities, residents can enjoy common facilities like parks, swimming pools, and recreation areas. Children can enjoy a day in the park, and families can have a good time playing by the pool. This means quality time without the need to spend.  


  1. Accessibility

These gated communities are often located at the heart of the city where access to health, financial institution, education, and churches is not a problem. It is beneficial not only to kids but to parents as well. It is less stressful to commute to work because of its convenience and near vicinity to most offices, which means they can have more time with their families.

  1. A warm Environment

Gated communities are places where there are no strangers, so everyone knows everybody. They organize events that will benefit the whole community, whether you are a tenant or a permanent resident. It is also easier for the kids to form and build relationships and find their life-long friends. The best part of living in these kinds of properties is that neighbors will always check for the welfare of their co-homeowner. Residents regularly schedule game nights and holiday get-togethers in gated communities.


  1. Your Future is Secured

Reliable contractors construct homes in these communities, resulting in consistent appreciation in house values year after year. This ensures that when the time comes for the children to inherit the property, its worth will have increased significantly. Prices of properties inside gated communities appreciate faster than that outside because the prestige that comes with living in these communities, considering all the benefits we’ve mentioned, has an add-on value to the house.
