Hi Neighbor!

Monday, March 18, 2013

Finally, you’ve found it – the ONE! Your dream home. From the front porch to that spa-ahh like master bath – you’re in love.

You’ve driven around the neighborhood. You know where the grocery store is and the nearest tot lot. BUT – have you met the neighbors?

If you’re serious about purchasing a home – do a little door knocking. Introduce yourself to a few neighbors. Ask them how long they’ve been there and what they like about the neighborhood. They are just as curious to meet a new home owner as you are to meet them. They can tell you if there are other children the same age as yours or if there are other dog owners to get to know.

When you move into your new place, throw yourself a party to meet your new neighbors. Don’t wait until you’re ALL unpacked. Just grab a few bottles of wine and soda, some cheese and crackers and invite them to a simple Open House. Nobody will mind all the boxes, they know you just got there!

My DH and I hosted a little get-together when we moved into our home 5 yrs ago. It was a lot of fun to get to know everyone. We luckily landed in the BEST neighborhood! We’ve gotten together for Bunco, cookouts, progressive parties and even a Snowmageddon party! We share recipes and pet sitting services.

I hope your experience is JUST as great!

Are YOU planning on a move. Let's talk about a strategy to get your home $OLD!
