3 Ways to Be a Good Apartment Neighbor, Cookeville, Tennessee

When you live in an apartment building, you often have neighbors on both sides of you, and sometimes above or below you. In such tight quarters, it's important to be considerate of those nearby. Follow these tips to be an apartment neighbor that everyone adores.

How to Keep Your Neighbors Happy

1. Speak in Normal Tones

When you're alone on the phone or hanging out with friends in your apartment, it's easy to forget that other people might be able to hear you. However, it's polite to use an indoor voice to avoid disturbing neighbors. Also, try not to cheer loudly when your team scores a goal, and keep your voice down when disagreeing with your partner or roommate. This is particularly important late at night and early in the morning when others are likely sleeping.

2. Be Friendly

apartmentThe best way to get along with your neighbors is to talk with them. Greet new residents when they move in and introduce yourself. Share neighborhood-relevant news or property updates, and offer to help if you see someone moving in or struggling with groceries in the hallway. Finally, ask your neighbors if they keep unusual hours or work overnight so you know if you should be quiet during certain times of the day.

3. Mind Your Pet

A pet is a terrific source of company, but it can be a bothersome apartment neighbor. A dog that yaps constantly while you're gone can be annoying for people who share your building. Whether it's training, crating, or doggie daycare, try different solutions to keep your pet calm and happy throughout the day. Also, always clean up their messes when you're out for a walk.
