What You Can Do To Get Used To A New Neighborhood

by Tammy Lord 01/07/2019

It doesn’t matter if you’re moving down the street or across the country, moving into a new neighborhood can be hard. You want to make your new property, and new area feel like home. Relocation is always a challenge. There are a few things you can do to make the transition smoother for your family. Meeting people and learning about your new community doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal. Read on for tips to make it fun! 


Approach Your Neighbors


It can be kind of scary to approach your new neighbors, but reaching out to them is one of the best ways to meet people. If you see your neighbors out and about give them a wave or shout “hello.” These gestures are a way to extend yourself without intruding on them. Ask questions about the neighborhood like when the trash pickup is or how the traffic on a local route is. You can even find out where the best grocery store to shop at is. Anything simple can open up a great conversation. 


Get Outside


It’s easy to meet up with your neighbors if you give them an opportunity to see you. Sit out on your porch. Go for a walk around the neighborhood. Spend some time outside gardening. Just be approachable. If you’re cheerful and seem a bit inquisitive about the area, people will be more likely to talk to you. 


Spend Time In The Community


If there’s a local diner or coffee shop, spend some time there. You’ll be more likely to meet your neighbors and have something in common with many of the people that live in your new space. Check out local parks with your kids or bring your dog. You can talk to other dog owners or parents and get to know them. 


Finding ways to volunteer and get involved in your community is also a great way to connect and get to know where you live. 


Other Ways To Get Involved


You can get connected with people in the area through connections you have. College alumni networks can connect you with social clubs in a new city or region. Your employer may also have mentoring programs to assist you through the transition         


Moving to a new area can be hard, but with an open mind to opportunities, you can make the transition pleasant for both you and your family.

Although I am very proud of every home I have ever helped someone buy or sell, I am most proud of the number of clients that have asked me to assist them time and time again. I have clients that I have helped buy and sell homes 2, 3 and even 4 times. I have had parents recommend me to their children to help buy their first home. Couples refer me to neighbors. Others have recommended me over the internet and in reviews. I have been honored to help families with their loved ones estates. A referral is the highest compliment that I could receive and I am grateful for each and every one of them. Throughout the years of various challenges that can arise when buying or selling a home, my philosophy has been very simple and unwavering. Honesty, patience, and availability.

Buying or selling a home with an experienced Realtor is an important partnership, and that means we need to be in it together. I am committed to that partnership 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. I'm always just a phone call away.

I hope I can be your beacon. Give me a call at 810-397-3803 so we can discuss your needs. www.tammylordsellshomes.com
