One of the factors involved in feeling truly comfortable in your community is the relationships that you’ll been able to establish with your neighbors in Phoenix, but it can be hard to know how to nurture a good relationship. Tru Realty understands how important feeling comfortable with the Valley neighborhood you choose is to you and knows how important it is to create relationships early on with your new neighbors.
So whether you’re moving into a new home soon or are wondering how to make some nearby friends, here are some simple tips for building long lasting friendships the ones that live closest to you.
Offer Up Your Favorite Dish
It might seem like a bit of a risk, but one of the best ways to get to know your neighbors is to knock on their door and bring along your favorite treat as an offering. Whether it’s your grandma’s “secret” banana bread recipe or your favorite chocolate chip cookies, simply showing up on their doorstep with treats in hand will ensure your neighbors in Phoenix know that you want to get to know them, and they’ll likely be happy to return the favor down the road!
Phoenix Neighbors Love A Good Pool Party
If you don’t want to go through the trouble of taking treats over to all of your neighbor’s houses in the Arizona heat, you may consider throwing a pool party at your home for a more effective means of meeting everyone. Especially during this time of year, a pool party is a great excuse to get everyone together and beat the heat. By personally inviting neighbors, along with some of your friends, you’ll easily interest others in your newfound presence on the block. You can also make it a potluck style meal so everyone can share their own dish and you won’t have to deal with planning on how to feed the whole neighborhood.
Make A Habit Of Neighborhood Walks (After The Sun Goes Down, Of Course)
It’s certainly the least complicated of all the options, but short walks through your Valley neighborhood may also be the easiest way to get to your neighbors. If you have a pet or a child, these tend to be automatic conversation starters, but a simple wave or ‘hello’ will also do the trick in making your face familiar. It also means you’ll get to know people over time and will be able to build a solid relationship. You may just want to wait until the temperature dips below 100 degrees to go out for these walks.
