We are flying down to Vero Beach in April to house-hunt, hooray !! We already have a realtor, who will show us houses on Monday through Wednesday. We will have Sunday on our own, and I am hoping to tour some Open Houses that day. My question is, do gated communities allow open houses ? If so, how do you get through the gate to see the house, if you are not accompanied by a realtor ?

Best not to buy in gated communities anyway.

That was my guess, you had to call the Realtor ahead of time to get the gate code. I know that some gated communities do not allow For Sale signs in yards, so I was hoping they DID allow Open Houses. Thanks newred5 !

Once you look at the open house and are inside the gated community I'm sure you can look all around

If it is guarded, the gate guard will have the address on file stating that they are having an open house from X-X. They will still get your license info, but they will let you in to look att the house. If it isn't guarded, they will give you the code if you call the realtor or the realtor will meet you at the gate. Good luck and happy hunting!!

I'm in a gated community and when they have an open house they just leave the gate open.
