If there is anything that luxury property owners have in common, it is a desire for privacy when they want it. While you may not necessarily want to seclude yourself from the rest of society, enjoying a sense of privacy is essential. If you are looking for a way to enjoy a greater amount of privacy while meeting up with people on your terms, here are a few strategies that you might want to consider putting into place.
Strategy #1: Send the Kids to a Private School
Sending your kids to a private school helps to ensure they are interacting with others who are just as likely to value their privacy as you. It will also give your children a good start in their career paths as they rub elbows with the children of other successful individuals.
Strategy #2: Enjoy a Getaway
Taking a vacation to a private island or an exclusive resort is a great way to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life while enjoying a higher level of privacy. Private barges offer another option for choosing who you will spend time with on your vacation.
Strategy #3: Go Low-Profile
To help keep the crowds away, you will need to take steps to maintain a low-profile. While it is difficult for celebrities to go unnoticed, a business person can more easily maintain some anonymity by avoiding photographs and maintaining a more low-key lifestyle. This might mean driving a standard or modest car or purchasing a more concealed luxury home.
You can also maintain a low profile by keeping your investment accounts in a nearby city. While it is true that the financial services industry takes steps to maintain the confidentiality of its clients, maintaining your finances in a nearby city will help prevent you from being sighted walking in the door by friends and competitors.
Strategy #4: Purchase the Right Property
If you don’t want to give up your luxury property in order to maintain some anonymity, the next best step is to choose a gated property in a neighborhood where privacy is respected and protected. Southern California has many communities consisting of others who wish to maintain a low-profile and where security is tight. Another option is to purchase a home on a large plot of land, which can be difficult in California with land being at such a premium. Or, in more extreme cases, you may even want to construct walls or use trees and other foliage to help block views from the road. Another option is to purchase a second home in a different area that is more luxurious than your primary home.
Strategy #5: Open a P.O. Box
Regardless of where you live, opening a P.O. Box will help you keep your actual address private. In many cases, you can use a P.O. Box for public records instead of your actual street address. This way, your actual street address is less likely to be found by those who may be interested in invading your privacy.
