You can experience so many emotions when moving to a new apartment community! It’s exciting to find your dream apartment and a little nerve-wracking when you may not know anyone in your new apartment community or you’re new to the Raleigh area. How do you go about meeting people on your floor? Here are three helpful tips for how to meet your new neighbors and connect with them:
Ask Staff Members: The knowledgeable team members at your apartment community are always happy to help! They’ll be familiar with other residents as well as the area and can make recommendations of who you should meet. There may be someone else that’s also new to the community!
Introduce Yourself: Don’t be shy, say hello and smile! Introducing yourself as the new face next door or down the hall gives you the chance to make further conversation with your new neighbors. They can serve as a great resource going forward!
Get Involved: A great way to meet not just your immediate neighbors, but other residents too, is to get involved in the community! Participating in resident socials, planned activities, and developing a regular routine, such as using the fitness center, can help you meet more people and ease your initial jitters.
Ask Questions: Once you’ve met your neighbors, get to know them! Ask them about themselves and their favorite things to do in the Raleigh area. You might have something in common! You can also ask questions about the apartment community itself if you need help knowing where to go.
