The New Neighbors on the Block
Being the new neighbor on the block can be an intimidating experience, especially if you’re moving to a new state or a different country where cultural differences and language barriers may take time to overcome. Getting acclimated always takes time, but if there’s a newcomer to your neighborhood, you can facilitate the process by welcoming them into the community.
As a resident in your neighborhood, it’s not only considerate to welcome your new neighbors, it’s also wise to get to know them. Starting off on the right foot with your new neighbor ensures you can approach them in a friendly way should any issues arise in the future. Here are some great ways to welcome your neighbors and get to know them in the process.
How to Welcome Your New Neighbors
- Greet them as they’re moving in – While it may seem counterintuitive, meeting your neighbors as they move in is a fantastic opportunity for an introduction. Not only can you introduce yourself, but you can also offer an extra hand to help move their boxes inside. It’s a wonderful way to build a foundation for your relationship – if they say no, offer your contact information in case they change their mind later.
- Create a welcome package – Chances are, you neighbor isn’t affiliated with all the local amenities and resources near your neighborhood yet. Go above and beyond by baking a pie for your neighbors as a welcome gift. Create a welcome package that includes information on local businesses nearby like grocery stores, restaurants and physician offices. Include contact information on local school districts or government offices nearby like the DMV – your neighbor will appreciate it.
- Host a dinner party – Your neighbors will likely be exhausted from moving in, and their dinner plans will probably include pizza or takeout. Welcome them to the neighborhood with a delicious homecooked meal. As they’re moving in, introduce yourself and invite them over for dinner that night when they take a break to eat. Make sure to note any food allergies they may have and get their opinion on what meals they like best. Your neighbors will appreciate the gesture, and hosting dinner is a great way to get to know your neighbors more.
