Be the Best Neighbor With These Helpful Tips


To best enjoy all the comforts that come with a friendly community, you must be a good neighbor yourself. Building and maintaining positive, long-lasting relationships with your neighbors (as well as your community manager) requires a little more than simply lending a cup of sugar now and then. Here are some tips to enable you to be the best neighbor.
  • Invite your neighbors over. If you have recently moved into a new community, you can quickly build rapport with a housewarming party and extend the invitation to your neighbors. Be sure to exercise caution and consider factors like loudness during your celebration.
  • Abide by all community rules. Review all rules and regulations, including, but not limited to parking restrictions, trash and recycling schedules, landscaping requirements, move-in procedures, and much more.
  • Maintain your curb appeal. Help keep the community’s property value up by keeping your yard in great condition. Regularly mow your lawn, power wash your home and be sure to pick up anything scattered on the lawn and put it back where they belong.
  • Be mindful of your pets. Good neighbors keep their pets in check by keeping them on a leash while walking, cleaning up after them and never leaving them unattended in their yard.
  • Handle conflicts with neighbors peacefully. Opt for an in-person discussion rather than through a text or email. This can help to deescalate the situation. If the problem continues, you should contact your community manager, and if it further develops, it is best to contact local authorities.
Forming relationships with neighbors is not always the easiest. Take the time to go out of your comfort zone and meet your neighbors if you have not done so already. Remember to be helpful and lend a helping hand where you can. You could even gain a new friend in the process!
