“A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living.” – Rudolf Steiner
Does living in a community actually matter? After all, if you are newly married and don’t have any kids at home, why should you worry about living in a community which is nearby to good schools? Also, you are not a senior and how will it matter whether or not you have senior citizen parks or good transportation systems in your area?
You have a car and it might not be really difficult for you to drive a few kilometres to do the grocery shopping or visit the doctor. So, why should you buy a home in a community which will provide you with these similar conveniences? But there is so much more to living in a community which most of us do not pay heed to. Living within the four walls of your standalone house is much different than that of living in a big community, with people around you 24*7.
Find below the three topmost reasons for living in a community.
- It Shapes Your Net Worth: On an absolute financial level, the value of your property will be determined by the fact that how vibrant your living community is. If, the community where you will buy a flat for yourself is located near to a few good schools and marketplace, it will have more value. So, your net worth will increase for the future if and when you wish to sell your property.
- It Influences the Richness of Your Life: You might not be a party person and the community clubhouse might not excite you enough. However, the community might sometimes host a singing concert or theatre which you’d really enjoy. Also, you can be new to the city with no good friends. Living in a community will give you the opportunity to make friends with your neighbours.
- It Makes Your Life Convenient: Even if driving is fun for you, after a busy day at work, driving miles to shop for groceries is actually taxing. Therefore, to make shopping for groceries and other necessary items easy and flexible for you, communities are coming up with convenience stores.
