You’ve spent months researching neighborhoods and school districts, visiting model homes and deciding on features and finishes — and now, you’re finally in your new home. You’re ready to unpack your boxes and settle into your new surroundings, but you’re aware that that involves much more than simply arranging your furniture the way you like it — it’s about making both your home and your neighborhood feel like home, and connecting with your new community. But after a stressful move, it can be hard knowing where to begin. Well not to worry: we’re sharing three ideas that will help you integrate into life at Dellrose with ease.
Getting to know your neighbors is a great way to help you feel settled into your new community, so don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and let them know that you’re new to the area. A kind gesture goes a long way, so if you’re comfortable, knock on their door with a small gift in hand (fresh-baked cookies go a long way!), or else greet them whenever you see them outside. As a family-oriented community, you’ll notice how your Dellrose neighbors will be happy to share information about the area and recommendations for local shopping, restaurants and more.
Spending time outdoors is another great way to help you settle into the community faster, and it provides another opportunity for you to meet new people without any awkwardness — so be sure to take time to explore all that Dellrose has to offer and use the amenities as much as possible. Strike up a match with someone new at the tennis courts, find a dog-walking buddy along the trails, put your green thumb to the test by planting a garden, and let kids make some new friends at the playground or pool.
Attending community events is one of the best ways to get involved in community life and discover what the neighborhood is passionate about. And luckily for Dellrose residents, there’s no shortage of great things happening at the community year-round, from spring markets and summer concert series to fall festivals and friendly gingerbread competitions come the holiday season.
