How to become a better neighbor in 2020

January 31, 2020

This new decade is the perfect opportunity to start good habits and that includes becoming better neighbors. It is understandable that with our schedules and odd routines, we might not get to know each of our neighbors, however, we can make everyone’s presence count through acts of kindness when we see each other, or actions of consideration when we do not. So here are some tips on how to become a better neighbor.


If you would like to become friendlier, next time you see a neighbor you haven’t really met before introduce yourself! A simple “hello” can go a long way: it shows you’re approachable and people are more likely to help you out if you ever need anything when they know who you are.

Greet your old neighbors with a smile and a simple wave. Showing attentiveness is polite and makes people feel acknowledged.

Keeping the noise low.

Avoid working on noisy chores early in the morning and in the late evening. Tasks such as vacuuming or revamping your wall art should be done during the day. Keep the same advice in mind if you like to play music out loud. When you are just moving in, it is understandable that you will be making a lot of movement and sound, yet you can always give a heads up to your neighbors to let them know you are new, and if you will be taking some space in the common areas.

Keeping common amenities in good shape.

Be mindful when you are using community amenities. Everyone expects to find them in the best condition, as you would too! Keep the residents’ pool and clubhouse clean and wipe down the equipment in the fitness center after you use it. If you notice any of our amenities need maintenance, let the property manager know so it gets fixed soon.

So there you go! These are some simple ways in which you can become a better neighbor. How many of these do you already practice?
