is taking hold in the Long Beach area and you should think about joining. If you've just moved into your home or are considering buying a new home, you may be wondering who lives next door. In this day and age with such busy lifestyles it can take awhile to meet your neighbors. However, for safety and community reasons, it's a good idea to introduce yourself and make some friends.
If you're shy about reaching out, you can always turn to the latest neighborhood introductory tool, Next Door
. Next Door allows you to meet your neighbors virtually and monitor neighborhood safety. You can also share recommendations or give and ask for advice, a helpful tool if you need a local contractor. If you'd like to start a neighborhood garage sale or host a block party, this is an easy way to get it started! You can even download an app for your smartphone to be updated when someone replies to your invitations or notices unusual activity near your home.
The map below shows the existing Next Door sites in Long Beach. If you live within a defined area it is super simple to join or if an area is blank, think about being the team leader of your area. We recently gave away bricks that needed to be removed from the yard of our listing in Los Altos. This site makes the exchange of ideas and items a win-win situation.
