Making Friends in Your New Home


Moving to a new city and neighborhood is very exciting. It is a great chance to meet new friends, but, where do you start when you don’t know anyone?

  1. Community Events – Many of the communities we build in, including Prescott Lakes and Quailwood, have a community center and clubhouse that offer great opportunities to meet your neighbors. Check the community calendar for upcoming events and clubs that you can join.
  2. Throw a Party – After you’ve settled in invite a few of your neighbors over for drinks and appetizers. Keep it simple, everyone knows you just moved in and won’t be expecting an elaborate dinner party. If you are moving into a new community, many other people may be moving in around the same time as you. This is a great opportunity to organize a block party, so everyone can meet each other.
  3. Go for a Walk – You won’t meet anyone if you are inside all day. Take a stroll around the neighborhood and introduce yourself to others along the way!
