Love thy neighbor … or at least try to be a considerate one.
Welcome new neighbors with an introductory note or a friendly chat. Maintain the area around your home so that it's neat and attractive.
Be conscientious about noises that might disturb your neighbors, such as vacuum cleaners, music, loud talk and barking dogs.
End parties at a reasonable hour. While you're at it, invite your neighbors to come, too.
Return anything that you borrow from your neighbor, such as tools or appliances, as soon as possible. Express your gratitude when you do so.
Replace anything that belongs to your neighbor that you, your children, or your pets break or soil.
