Gated Communities Homes for Sale

And while it isn’t always the case, many gated communities consist of homes with similar statures, color pallets, and designs, which for some buyers is preferable to the hodgepodge of homes you may find outside a gated community. Southwest Florida homes in gated communities vary, some with a manned guard shack, and others with electronic gates.
