If you’ve been thinking about making a move to a planned community – or even if you’ve just heard the term, but don’t know exactly what it entails – there are some interesting facts about these types of developments…and they’ve been steadily drawing people in for the past few years.
As its name suggests, a planned community is defined as a type of housing development where literally everything has been planned out. This includes the homes themselves, as well as the roads, shops, and other amenities that you will find throughout the area. The key reason for this is to help in making life there as convenient, and enjoyable, as possible.
You may also find a wide range of different home types within a planned community. For instance, rather than just featuring single family structures, you are more apt to find detached homes, along with condos and townhouses.
In addition, there are typically a long list of other nice amenities, such as lakes or ponds, swimming pools, tennis courts, parks, and / or scenic walking trails. You may even find planned activities, like softball teams and / or various clubs. So, residing in a planned community can not only be convenient, but it can be a great way to know and interact with your neighbors.
