Gated developments are something rather new here in Murphy, North Carolina. They are becoming far more frequent with mid to upper scale developments and subdivisions. When you’re looking to buy a lot for sale in Murphy, North Carolina, a gated entrance may be something you do or do not want.
Gated entrances certainly serve a good purpose at keeping those that don’t belong out. Not only that, they often look impressive. Generally speaking, gates are left open during the day here in Murphy NC. Many operate on timers or light sensors and close at dusk. You’ll find that most don’t stay closed during the day.
Many folks from areas other than Murphy consider gated developments as being “uppety” and full of rigid restrictions and covenants that don’t allow them to use their property in the way they want. Bear in mind Murphy’s developments are not like those of Florida, Michigan, and other places. We don’t have the Nazi home owner’s association that measure grass or anything like that (thankfully!). The homeowner’s associations here are largely in place to only maintain the roads, common areas, and well water supplies for the development.

With that said, if you are leaning toward NOT buying land in a subdivision with a gated entrance, I would reconsider your reluctance in not purchasing it. Depending on your goals in buying property, a gated entrance may still be a an excellent option.
