  1. A Lively City – People are looking for an area that people move about by keeping their homes kept up, socialize, happy in life. A stagnate area with cars parked on the lawns with overgrowth, weed hazards does not make for a wanted neighborhood.
  2. SECURITY – Besides living in a lively community – People would prefer living in a Guard Gated Community if the Dollars worked out. This means that you are living in an island of safety.
  3. FEELING OF A SMALL TOWN – Having a wide range of options for either a small home with no land or a big home and lots of space makes for a good neighborhood. Living in a gated community is similar to a small town.
  4. A PLACE FOR FAMILY AND HOME – Living near parks, hiking trails, nature, Baseball parks, Community parties, helps make your neighborhood some place that will make you feel at home.
  5. BEING CLOSE TO STORES – and DELIVERIES – Well things have surely changed with the Pandemic and shopping…a great neighborhood will have both.
