Perks of Living in a Master-Planned Community

What is a master-planned community? You may have heard about this option in recent years as you’ve considered moving. A master-planned community is a large neighborhood, which is ultimately self-contained. Residents find everything from parks to shopping and fitness centers, all in one community area. Even schools are found in master-planned communities.

If you’ve never lived in a master-planned community before, you may be hesitant to take the leap. But there are so many benefits to moving into new master-planned communities, including:

  • Safety
  • Convenience
  • Social Life
  • Quality
  • Investment
  • Amenities

Master-Planned Community Benefits

1. They’re Safe

One of the greatest benefits of moving into a master-planned community is the level of safety and security. Master-planned communities often provide security patrols, gated entrances, and community watch groups. These communities will frequently feature police and fire stations as well, ensuring that help is around the corner at all times. 

Travisso, being located in the Texas Hill Country, has the potential to be threatened by wildfire. Because of this, the Travisso Association has taken extra precautions to lower the risk of fire and increase the community’s defensibility by becoming firewise. Additionally, Leander Fire Station No. 5 is located within the Travisso community.

2. Convenience

A huge reason why people often choose new master-planned communities over other locations is that they’re really convenient to live in. You don’t have to drive long distances to reach grocery stores, pharmacies, or schools.

3. Better Social Life

Because master-planned communities are set up to encourage closeness and activities, it’s often easier to have a social life within them. Think about how much easier it would be to plan a night out with your family when you have restaurants, movie theaters, and other outlets right at your fingertips. And at Travisso, we bring these to you!

4. Higher Quality Homes

There is a level of quality control that goes into master-planned communities. Generally, Homeowners Associations (HOA) run these communities. The HOA will ensure that homes are built and maintained at certain standards, ensuring that there isn’t a dip in quality. 

At Travisso, our award-winning builders elevate the breathtaking Texas hills with the finest craftsmanship. Drees Custom Homes, Taylor Morrison, and Toll Brothers represent the finest in quality, design, and innovation in the Austin Metro today.

5. Stable Property Values

One of the best things about master-planned communities is that they often have stabilized property values. This means there will be less chance of your home losing value during a recession. Ultimately, your investment is more protected.

Leander is recognized as one of the fastest growing in the country and one of the safest cities in Texas. Leander was also voted #1 best place to raise a family. Know your investments are secure while immersing yourself in our community.
