How To Be A Good Neighbor While Renting

Being a good tenant goes beyond paying rent. It means being a good neighbor. One of the concerns we hear from the homeowners whose property we manage is how their neighbors will react to a renter in their home. We put them at ease with the quality of the renters we find.

National Property Management Group has some tips on how to be a good neighbor:

-Neighbors are often wary of renters because they don’t know them or may not feel they’re invested in their neighborhood. So be sure to introduce yourself (and your family) at the earliest possible time.

-Let your new neighbors know that you consider yourself a part of this community and will behave like it. Attend neighborhood meetings and volunteer for any initiatives like neighborhood cleanup.

-Advise them if you have pets and how you’ll care for them. Neighborhoods frown on loose pets or pets that misbehave. Put your neighbors at ease before an incident arises.

-Be considerate. If you plan to entertain a large group let your neighbors know, you might even consider inviting them. If parking space is precious ask your guests to park on neighboring streets if possible.

-If you’re renting a house keep the yard and landscaping looking neat. Curb appeal is a source of pride in any neighborhood so do your part to keep it up.

At National Property Management Group we pride ourselves on the quality of our properties.

    It is important to put a name to the face when moving into a new place, renting or owning. This way small issues between neighbors don't accelerate into bigger problems.

    These are some great tips, I think it's easy to forget how important it is to get to know the people around you. Instead of waiting for people to come to you, being proactive and meeting your neighbors can help a lot.

    The only time I lived in a home that I rented was during college. Luckily most of my neighbors were also students that rented, so I didn't have to worry about feeling isolated or disrupting them. However, I think the notes you provided are accurate and very helpful for others.
