Whether you have just bought a new house or have been living in your neighborhood for a while, having a good sense of basic neighborly etiquette is essential to create a harmonious and respectful environment in your community. As such, here are a few reminders on how to be a good neighbor in your Grasslands Lakeland FL house:
Smile and say hello. A little gesture that requires minimal effort such as a smile goes a long way in keeping the atmosphere of your neighborhood a lot friendlier. Wave hello whenever you bump into them during your morning jog or while hanging out at the park.
Share food. Always practice the age-old tradition of greeting new neighbors with a welcome food basket. Food is always a welcome treat for new Grasslands communities in Lakeland FL homeowners and a really nice way to learn more about your new neighbors, too.
Turn your music down. Be respectful of the peace and quiet in your neighborhood. If you really need to play loud music, make sure you install soundproofing in the rooms of your house. Or, if you’ll be throwing a party, remember to clear this with your neighbors and ask permission from the neighborhood association. Don’t forget to invite them all in, too.
Be a good driver. Observe the speed limit on your local roads. Don’t go racing around the neighborhood streets like a racing driver. Be mindful of the kids, dogs, walkers, and bikers on the street. Also, don’t leave your car outside the garage.
Resolve disputes in person. Never be confrontational about arising problems. Always be calm and collected whenever an unpleasant situation comes along and be direct with the person you’re having problems with. Start the conversation in a pleasant way such as “Hi neighbor, you may not have realized this but…” Always remember that a little pleasantry goes a long way.
Keeping in good terms with your neighbors make for a harmonious living situation at your home in Grasslands Lakeland FL. By observing these few simple etiquette tips, you’re bound to get voted as the “Best Neighbor in Town”, if you ever have that kind of fun event.
