A Matter of Lifestyle
While each master planned community will be different, they all have one thing in common. They share a lifestyle. And that’s why you are looking for real estate in this kind of community. You don’t want to be right in the city, but you don’t want to give up some of the amenities living in the city offers.
Boise is full of opportunity, but it’s also full of the usual hustle and bustle of a larger city. Constant traffic isn’t something that you want, which is a part of why you’re drawn to a master planned community. Quiet streets and an equally quiet neighborhood, all planned out with beauty and perfection. Many communities offer their own amenities, though, which means you aren’t missing out on the big city life.
School districts can be important, and so can the ability to take a nice walk or bike around the block. There are many reasons to buy real estate in a master planned community, and a sense of peace and quiet is certainly one of them. Even if you just want to live in a peaceful community, where you can actually meet and learn the names of your neighbors, this kind of neighborhood is perfect.
Speaking of peaceful, the draw of many master planned communities is their proximity to parks or other green spaces. Having a backyard is nice, but sometimes you enjoy getting out of the house and meeting up with some friends, or just enjoying the peace and quiet of a park. Once again, the green space means less noise pollution from the city, and you won’t feel as boxed in either.
A Matter of Amenities
Apart from a friendly community, plenty of room, green space, and quiet, a big draw of many master planned communities are the amenities that they offer. Each community will be different, but you’ll be able to find the one that’s perfect for you.
Who hasn't dreamt about a house with a swimming pool? While you may not find exactly that, many of these communities do have pools available to their residents. Enjoy a nice relaxing swim without fighting Boise’s traffic. Exercise without paying extra for a gym with a pool. The best part is that you don’t have to maintain the pool yourself. Worry-free fun in the water, and that’s just one perk.
Many master planned communities also supply fitness centers. Forget the duffle bag, and leave your car keys at home. You can hit the gym where you live, and you don’t have to worry about maintaining a gym membership. This lets you exercise when you want, and how you want. No need to fight for parking or account for driving time. The gym is right where you are.
I've already mentioned parks, but they are worth mentioning again. Green space can come at a premium when you’re in the city, but many master planned communities have parks or other green spaces as an amenity. Having those open areas is something you can easily take for granted, but they are so worthwhile. It takes away that cramped feeling that can come from living in the city, and it also helps keep noise pollution to a minimum. Some communities also have common areas, which serve to break up the spacing of the houses, while adding yet another space for you to enjoy.
Don’t forget the community! One of the best amenities about a master planned community is the community itself! If you’re interested in a certain lifestyle, like golf for instance, you can buy real estate in a community built near a golf course. You’ll always have golfing buddies, and you’ll live near what you love. Even if golf isn't your thing, most residents in a community tend to be like-minded, which means you won’t have to experience bad neighbors. Everyone else living there picked their real estate for the same reason you did. They love the community, and they want to be a part of it.
A Matter of Location
You love Boise, and you want to be a part of the largest city in Idaho. Just maybe not that big a part. The beauty of master planned communities is that they keep the location you want, just a little a removed. Live in Boise without having to be in Boise. These communities are excellent real estate choices, because they let you have the city life, but you can keep the quiet and safety of a subdivision, where your neighbors are people, and not businesses or colleges.
So where are some of these awesome communities? If you don’t want to be too far away from Boise, there are plenty within the city (just not right in Boise) that will foot the bill nicely. Cozy up next to Barber Park and the Greenbelt. Boise River might just be in your backyard.
To get a little further away from Boise, you have plenty of wonderful options in Meridian or Eagle. You’re still close enough to head into the city for anything you might need, but you’re far enough away that you can avoid the hustle and bustle. Keep it peaceful, and enjoy more space, more green, and quieter streets.
Buying real estate in a master planned community is a worthwhile investment. You know what you want, and you want quiet, open and green spaces, and wonderful amenities. Plus, you never have to go far to Boise. It’s the perfect balance for the perfect home in an area that’s full of beauty and opportunity.
