Gated communities are nothing new in Houston Texas or anywhere else around the world for that matter, since people have lived in groups and behind reinforced walls and other types of enclosures for centuries. More than 1,000 years ago, over 1 million Chinese people lived behind gates in walled in communities, while guards stood outside and kept residents inside and intruders out. Of course, today’s gated communities in houston are not nearly as structured and restricted as this, but they do pride themselves on lower crime rates and higher levels of community participation in events among residents. They also are happy that most residents keep their yards and homes in great condition, which avoids neighbors having to look at other neighbors’ overgrown yards or awful paint jobs. And lastly, they love that solicitors rarely make it into their neighborhoods so they have more peace and quiet.
Since Houston ranked second by Forbes magazine’s May 2012 listing of the top 10 large cities for job opportunities, more people have begun exploring Houston Texas land for sale, and most of this activity has been occurring inside these gated communities. In their searches for excellent Houston land for sale, plenty of people relocating to the city are finding that these gated communities are most ideal. Of course, they look at other types of Houston land for sale, but largely most come back to finding what they deem the best land Montgomery County has available by selecting Houston land for sale within these communities.
