Montreal Houses for Sale - Montreal Gated communities
Gated communities are not available in Montreal, Quebec. However,
gated communities are popular elsewhere one reason is because there
is no "through traffic." The gate puts a stop to cars zipping
through using your local streets as a short cut. This makes gated
communities safer for kids walking or riding their bikes to the neighbor's
house, the playground, or to catch the schoolbus. Gated communities
can be safer from crime, too. Exactly how safe depends on whether
there is a guard at the gate or not. Unguarded gates are relatively
easy to get past for the enterprising criminal. For the impatient
individual, a gated community may be a poor choice. Whenever a serviceman
makes a repair call or the pizza comes within the allotted thirty
minutes, you will have to check in with the guard or buzz them in.
On the strong side, gated communities normally exhibit a strong pride
of ownership. Home values hold up very well. Just don't buy a house
right next to the gate. Purchase a home as close to the center of
the neighbourhood as possible.
Montreal's gated communities are mostly in the outer areas of Montreal
and are in some of condominium complexes inside Montreal.
