Chino Hills Real Estate 101: Meeting Your Neighbors

Oct 16, 20159:00 am

When you buy new Chino Hills real estate, you can use these tips to get to know your neighbors!

When you buy a home, you commit to it for the long-term. It just doesn’t make sense, then, to not get to know your neighborhood or your neighbors. That’s all well and good, you may be thinking, but how do you actually meet your neighbors these days?

We can help! After you purchase Chino Hills real estate, utilize these tips to give yourself the chance to get to know your neighbors.

  • Make a move. Your neighbors may not know that you’ve moved in, so it’s up to you to initiate contact. The best, most direct way to do this is by walking up to their home and introducing yourself. Try to catch them when they’re already outside to avoid intruding on family time. If you’re too shy for this kind of up-front introduction, a kind handwritten note introducing yourself and asking them over for coffee or a cocktail is a good start!
  • Use your resources. Do you have kids in school? Wait with them at the bus stop to see if you can meet other neighbors with similarly aged kids. Do you have a dog? Walk him or her to the closest dog park and meet other dog owners in your area.
  • Get involved. Look for clubs in your area—from the local library to your golf course to your community pool—to give yourself a common activity over which you can meet people.

Of course, before you can get to know your neighbors you need to find the great Chino Hills real estate in a great neighborhood. For guidance to the perfect property, contact John & Michelle.
