Five Tips for a Happy Neighborhood.

Fostering great relationships with your neighbors is the key to a happy community.

21369445_23

Whether you’re just moving to a new neighborhood or have lived in one for years, the following tips will help build connections with your neighbors and encourage a friendly rapport:

1. Introduce Yourself: Being on a first-name basis with all of your immediate neighbors will establish a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

2. Go for Walks: Regularly walking around your neighborhood will increase your chances for meeting new neighbors and give you more opportunities to strike up conversations with ones you already know.

3. Give an Unexpected Gift: Giving your neighbors a gift, whether it’s something as simple as home-baked cookies or a potted plant, can go a long way in showing that you care about establishing a friendship.

4. Organize an Event: Make use of your outdoor living space this summer! Hosting a dinner party or barbecue provides an occasion for neighbors to meet, mingle and have fun.

5. Communicate: If you’re planning on being out of town, throwing a party, or renovating your home, consider letting your neighbors know as a courtesy.

Thank you for thinking of me for all of your real estate needs. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do for you.

We will work together to get the home sold, likely will sellers already waiting for a home just like yours.

Together we will determine your selling expectations, including a timeframe you have in mind, and price your home to sell by reviewing comps. We will also look at the neighborhood(s) you are interested in for your new home and discuss your overall home needs.

Then, to get your home listed…and sold…we will stage it and have it professionally photographed and marketed.

Once we have an offer(s) on the table, we will negotiate to get you the best possible price and achieve your overall goals. As an expert in the industry, I have a system which will allow the paperwork process to move smoothly, making your home selling experience easy.

If you or someone you know is thinking of selling a Geist lakefront home, don’t wait. Contact me today to get started.
