Are Guard Gated and Gated Communities Common?
Homes for sale in a guard gated community are rare in older Las Vegas neighborhoods. Homes for sale in a gated community are extremely common in newer neighborhoods.
Older communities with homes for sale in gated communities are rare but in demand. In the past 30 years, guard gated communities are the safer, more expensive choice that homebuyers want.
Guard Gated Communities are typically in more affluent neighborhoods with luxury homes due to the cost of full-time guards. There are quite a few in Las Vegas and Henderson, especially among homes for sale in golf course communities. High-rise condominiums for sale are gated with security.

Living In Gated Communities
Among homebuyers, both guard gated and gated communities with homes for sale are very popular in the Las Vegas Valley. Living in a gated community adds prestige to a home and will add up to $100 a month to your Homeowners Association bill.
Besides a gate, there will be a wireless entry system where visitors will enter your code, and the system calls you for access. Some gated communities also have cameras on poles to record license plates.
No matter where you live, an access gate is not a guaranteed fool-proof security feature. However, gates are a deterrent. In communities with gates, I can say that the biggest problem is when someone tries to force a gate open. Most communities have service contracts that will repair the gates, but you may have to wait a day or two.
Homes For Sale In Las Vegas Gated Communities
A single family home for sale in a gated community will sell for more than one in a non-gated community with the same number of square feet. This also varies by area and Clark County School District zoning. This is especially true in areas with recreational areas and walking trails.
When there is a home for sale in a gated community, we often will not do an open house because we don’t want to give out a gate code. Homeowners give their gate code to service people and family and friends. All these people are possible leaks in security.
Most gated communities and communities with guard gates have a pedestrian gate closing off the sidewalk with push-button coded access. Pedestrian gates are not the weak link in security, people are.
Senior Citizen 55 communities have guards that do more for homeowners. Vacation checks are a great example of what they do. When porch lights are blinking, they call an ambulance and escort ambulances to the home. Even though some communities are not guarded, guards are aware.
