Something many home buyers covet. Her in our unique mountain community many vacation home buyers see security ion a gated community, knowing that access is monitored.

One drawback of a gated community is that it may be more expensive in terms of HOA dues. If you buy a home outside of a gated community you may not have any HOA dues. The odds are pretty good however that buying inside a gated community involves monthly, quarterly, or annual dues.
