Builders often plan and build entire communities when they have enough land to develop. They try to combine living space with light industry, office space and small shops. These communities are not meant to be entirely self-sufficient, but some do come close. A convenient lifestyle is generally the goal for a combined community. Less time needs to be spent running errands in nearby city centers. Groceries, dry cleaning and arcade entertainment are just three of the more popular shops within a developed community of this type.

People who are attracted to these types of communities want a pleasant neighborhood. Parks, pools and walking paths are part of the ambiance they seek. Areas for children to play and pets to roam are important to their lifestyle. Developers work hard to make sure the environment is user friendly. They also take the time to fully landscape community areas. This adds value to the property as well as to the lifestyles of people within the community.
