FINALLY, A "GATED - AFFORDABLE" COMMUNITY...  

Tennessee is has become one of the fastest growing states in the U.S., Although Tennessee is usually thought of as a tourist destination, now  because of Tennessee's low cost of living and great health care benefits, people are flocking to our state.

Many people are leaving the cold climates behind in the north to enjoy Tennessee's mild climate. Others are leaving Florida's heat behind to enjoy Tennessee's four seasons. Californians are relocating to Tennessee to escape high taxes and politics that have gone awry.   

Shekinah Lakes is one of Tennessee's great destinations. We are less than a two hour drive to the sights of Memphis and music in Nashville, as well as major medical centers.  Shekinah Lakes offers a great sense of community for those who desire to exchange life in the city for "good old fashion" country living. It's the way American use to be...

Shekinah Lakes offers buyers the opportunity to live in a community where homes do not cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars!!!

What about it? Is it time... for you to come home to Tennessee???

WHEN THE FIRST OWNERS ARE IN PLACE, WE WILL ESTABLISH THE RULES FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN OUR COMMUNITY
In order to maintain property values, we must have a few "rules" in place that are for the betterment of all homeowners. For instance, no junk refrigerators on porches, no junk cars left in front yards, no dogs running loose, grass must be cut and yards maintained (we have personnel that can do this for you), etc. In fact, we have a plumber we use as well as electrician, heating and air contractor, yards maintenance people, just about anyone you may need in the future, that you can contact, knowing any project will be done reasonable and right.

Shekinah Lakes will not be overbearing. However, neither do we want the community to go downhill. It is neat, beautiful and we intend to keep it that way. For many, we believe maintaining Shekinah Lakes as it is, is a dream come true. For others, it might be a hassle to have to keep things looking nice. For those folks, Shekinah Lakes is not for them.

The entire purpose of Shekinah Lakes Community is to maintain a higher quality of life for its homeowners. Someday there will be a fee that homeowners themselves set. Probably around $50 a month to maintain the roads and grounds that are on Shekinah Lakes. 

There are special public areas that are for homeowners, as well as, a beautifulbuilding by the lake that can be used for special events.

TOP 10 REASONS FOR LIVING IN A GATED COMMUNITY

1) SAFETY - Gated communities shields the families who live there from burglary, theft of vehicle and other personal property, etc. No one can drive up into your driveway at night or park in front of your home that you do not know. Because a gated community is private, it is more difficult for strangers to access than a standard community

2) STOPS THIEVES AND VANDALS - A gated community is a greater deterrent to thieves and vandals. No one is able to just come by and case your home to come back when you are not at home. A security gate is enough to discourage and block theft since burglars prefer to go for easier targets. A gated property is also a psychological deterrent for would-be criminals. For instance: nearby Jackson has one of the highest crime rates in America (crime rate is 54 per one thousand residents). This means Jackson has one of the highest crime rates in America. One’s chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Jackson is one in 19. It is a very dangerous city to live in. Jackson has the dubious distinction of placing fourth in the nation, of similar size cities, in terms of both murders and violent crimes per 100,000. Memphis is the most violent city in Tennessee as well as one of the most violent places in the country to live. At Shekinah Lakes we do not rent to undesirable people, or those with criminal records. Although criminals are known to live in gated communities, at Shekinah Lakes we do not rent to them, because the safety of residents is determined also by those who live there.

3) PRIVACY – Solicitors are discouraged and blocked. They do not have access to come knocking on your door. This provides you with serenity so you are able to enjoy being at home. 

4) STATUS – There is a certain distinction that just comes with living in a gating a community. Most celebrities will only live within a gated community.

5) LESS TRAFFIC - Since there is less traffic, it is quieter and more peaceful. 

6) RELAXATION - There are those who have people coming over to their home anytime and this intrudes on their family time.

7) SLOWER VEHICLE SPEEDS - Vehicles that come into Shekinah Lakes must stop before entering. This helps remind residences to slow down before entering. This makes is safer for children and those walking around the property.

8) PRIVATE PROPERTY - Shekinah Lakes roads are private. The public cannot use the resources inside our property.

9) GREATER SENSE OF COMMUNITY - Because a gated community controls who comes in, tenants have a greater awareness of who belongs and who is a stranger. This can result in developing trust and enjoy familiarity with other tenants.

10) HOMES ARE WORTH MORE - Homes in a gated community are known to be worth $30,000 more than in a traditional neighborhood. 

In most instances, gated communities are too expensive for a lot of folks to live there. However, living in a gated community is finally affordable... at Shekinah Lakes!!!TOP 10 REASONS TO LIVE IN A GATED COMMUNITY

Tenants at at Shekinah Lakes usually use Hughesnet or Exede satellite or just make a hot spot on their Verizon phone. To the left is a recent bandwidth signal reading (3 bars), from a Verizon cell phone hot spot on our property. As you can see, it is is 39 meg down and 13.8 up. With this high of speed you can utilize most anything on the internet, from movies to games. However, a fiber optic line is just down the road from us and as soon as the finances are available from the company to run the line further, we should have even better internet.
