Be a Good Neighbor
Whether you’re new to the neighborhood or have lived in your community for decades, it’s always a good idea to be on friendly terms with your neighbors. Your neighbors will be there to help when there’s a disaster, let you contact a tow truck if you get locked out of your home, or if you go away on a trip and need someone to keep an eye on your house.
What can you do to get to know your neighbors? Here’s a few suggestions that will help improve neighborly love.
- Take the first step — When you get new neighbors take the initiative and introduce yourself. If you can, drop off a small housewarming gift. Don’t wait for a holiday to drop by treats. They’ll be your neighbors all year long. Reaching out will give you more than you give.
- Trade phone numbers — Practically everyone has a cell phone. It’s a good idea to have the cell number of your neighbor in case there’s an emergency.
- Take care of your yard — Sometimes it’s a challenge to get in the yard and spruce it up. However, if you don’t your neighbors will notice. Make lawn care part of your to-do list. It’ll motivate your neighbors to follow your lead, keeping property values up.
- Discuss property changes — If you’re thinking of building a fence or cutting down a tree that’s near your neighbor’s boundary lines, tell them about it. If your neighbor has concerns about intrusion on their property rights, it’s best to find out before the work gets done. They’ll appreciate your consideration.
