Are you searching for military housing with a gated entrance? There are plenty of apartments near base that come with a gated entrance.

If you are relocating to a new city, you may prefer to live in military housing surrounded by an enclosed gated entrance. Having a gated entrance can be beneficial for several reasons. First, for those new to the community, living in gated apartments near base can allow one to feel as though they are living in a more secluded environment. Allowing only residents to enter through a closed gate can also help keep traffic to a minimum.  As a result, parking may also be less of a nuisance, as only residents will be parking inside of the gated community.

However, there are a few drawbacks to living in such type of properties. Many times, tenants often complain about the difficulties their visitors may have in obtaining entrance. Secondly, if you forget your gate key, be prepared to wait until the next car in line can open the fence for you.

If these cons are outweighed by the pros, living in a gated community may be right up your alley. Now, how do you find such communities?

Jacksonville is such a large city and finding a specific property just near the military base may seem like a daunting task at first glance. However, there are plenty of military housing properties that provide their residents with top of the line amenities such as a security fence.
