If you’re like most people, a place is never really home until you have ties to the area. When we move, we tend to miss the community the most. That’s why it’s so important to start reaching out to people around your new condo community. Most condo associations have events at least once a month. If yours doesn’t, at least take the time to knock on your neighbors’ doors, introduce yourself, and ask questions. Now would be a good time to get the scoop on the best restaurants in the area, learn about school systems, and more. Don’t be afraid to explore a bit, either. Take two or three weekends to drive around the community, go to local shops, and tour the area. Sometimes, the places that you end up loving the most are the ones you stumble upon at random.
