Default New neighbors

Some new renters just moved in next door.

How long should I give them to settle before I introduce myself?

The sooner you introduce yourself and help someone out...the better.

I would think they would be happy for someone to say hello and welcome. Just don't overdue it and hang around to long or to much.

Hopefully you have talked to them buy now. A simple introduction can be pretty short.

I just had some new neighors move in on the OTHER side now. The perils of being surrounded by renters. Both groups seem pretty good this time around.

I've always appreciated it when the people living there come by to say "hi" and offer to lend me a hand if I need it. It helps me feel safe.

Default Apple pie anyone??

um... howabout...

Bring em over a nice, warm apple pie... straight from the oven. Wear oven mitts. Smile big.

Works great.... !

Be sure to follow up the contact with cheery waves as you drive by or similar things.

My husband will periodically mow a neighbor's yard if he knows they're new or involved with something. Then he stands around with them and jabbers if they're home.

We have some seriously nice avocado trees, so we take fresh fruit around in season. Or I'll make some christmas cookies, put em in nice tins... hand em out. We've had neighbors give or share with us their sausages from smokers, oranges and grapefruits from trees, starfruit, trash barrels, even concrete mixers!

Our neighbors have been there for us when we've needed em... you make good neighbors by being good neighbors - that's what me Gram always said!
