Everybody knows that one of the most important factors in shaping a rental experience is the actual physical apartment. However, most people don’t realize that neighbors can be just as important and influential to your living experience before they move into a new spot. One of the keys to having a worthy experience with your neighbors is to be a helpful neighbor yourself. Want to learn more about how to become a better apartment neighbor? Read on to learn how with these four tips.
One of the keys to any real relationship, but particularly the neighborly kind, is communication. It is tempting to leave your neighbor and do your own thing, but if you want to be a good apartment neighbor, it’s crucial to communicate consistently. Introduce yourself on move-in day, and stay in touch about issues with the building/community.
Another excellent way to establish communication is to be social. Organize a picnic or potluck lunch for everyone that lives around you. Show your neighbors that you wish to know them, but you also want them to know that you’re interested in fostering a real community.
Be on the Lookout
One of the best parts of an apartment neighbor is that they can be around your house to help you out when needed. So you should be there for your neighbors too. Always keep watch and be protective of your neighbor’s apartment townhomes, as well as your own. This means that if something terrible does happen, you will be able to stop it or fix it, so they don’t have to. Showing that you care about their space and your own is a great way to endear yourself to your neighbors and ensure that you’ve got someone looking out for you.
Everybody wants to live their own life, but it is essential to be respectful of other people’s space and time, especially in an apartment community. This means don’t have loud parties late into the night and warn people who might be affected by the noise from your apartment if you plan to have a larger gathering. Also, be mindful of shared walls, keeping your outdoor and shared space clean, and not using your space for anything unpleasant or dangerous.
