september 6, 2023
At Ignite Mobile Home Communities, we pride ourselves on fostering welcoming neighborhoods in great locations. Whether you’re still scoping our close-knit, friendly communities or have recently moved in, we know you’ll love your new home! Here are some quick to help you settle into your new neighborhood!
- Introduce Yourself: It seems so simple, but the first trick is to start the conversation! Don’t be shy about introducing yourself to your immediate neighbors. Knock on their doors, say hello, and let them know your name and that you’re the new neighbor.
- Attend Neighborhood Events: From block parties to barbeques, many neighborhoods have regular events or meetings. Attend these gatherings to meet more of your neighbors and get involved in your community.
- Join Online Neighborhood Groups: The best neighborhood gathering place is often online! You may find your neighborhood has online communities on platforms like Facebook, Nextdoor, or community-specific websites. Joining these groups can be a great way to introduce yourself and stay up-to-date on local news and events.
- Offer Help: If you notice a neighbor struggling with something like moving furniture or yard work, offer your assistance. This is a great way to break the ice and show your willingness to be a helpful member of the community.
- Walk or Bike Around: Our communities are designed to be walkable and bikeable! Spend time exploring your new neighborhood on foot or by bike. This not only helps you get to know the area better but also increases your chances of meeting people naturally.
Every neighborhood is unique, but the need to be a part of a community is the same everywhere. Getting to know your neighbors is good for your health and can be good for your security too! Take steps to get out and be a part of your community today.
