When you are looking to buy a new home you should be able to explore every single avenue of the house and its surroundings to get an idea of whether you will be happy there. Just like a real estate agent will show you around a house, you should have a local in the area show you around the neighbourhood and more importantly meet the new neighbours.
Having a good relationship with your neighbours can be the difference between whether you come home smiling or you staying at work because you dread to come home.
There are many ways to meet the neighbours without looking like a crazy person, remember when you were growing up and you could duck nextdoor to borrow a pint of milk if you ran out? That’s the type of relationship you should aim for again.
The most civilised way to go about it is to simply pop over one day, introduce yourself and ask them if they’d like to come around for drinks one evening. This way you can introduce them to the rest of your family and get to know a little bit about them in a relaxed environment.
If you fail to meet the neighbours and make it hard for them to introduce themselves to you then you place yourself at risk of becoming not only socially isolated in your street but they may not keep an eye out for you when you’re away and do things such as feed your cat or collect your mail. Things you should feel comfortable doing for your neighbours. Put simply, if you don’t get on with the neighbours you could be booking those removals guys sooner than you thought.
Even if you think they are the most hideous people in the world, you should still try your best to get along with them. It will make your lives so much easier and peaceful.
