How to Welcome a New Resident to the Community
Being a new condominium resident can be challenging as the tenant is inexperienced with their surroundings while everyone else is familiar with the rules and each other. The prospect of integrating into such a close-knit community can be intimidating, and they may feel the urge to close themselves off from their new neighbors. Here are several steps that can be taken to ensure that your new residents feel right at home in their condominium.
Have an Open Door Policy
Aside from the rules and regulations, be sure to provide your tenant with any other information they might need concerning their new home. This includes information on utility services, what to do in case of an emergency, places of interest in the area, and any amenities. Also, provide them with contact information for board members. The idea is to encourage an open door policy. In the event of a complaint from a new resident, a Tampa condominium association management service can handle this issue.
Welcome Them With a Gift
There’s no reason that a resident’s first impression of their condominium association has to pertain exclusively to fees and a list of rules. You don’t need to make a grand gesture to every resident; however, a small token, like a letter, can make them feel welcomed. Let them know that the association is genuinely excited to have them.
The Latest Newsletter
Be sure to provide the new resident with the latest newsletter informing them of recent news on other residents, events, and all the latest happenings in the community. This will help keep them in the loop and encourage them to engage with their neighbors. Our Tampa condo association management company knows the importance of creating an engaging newsletter.
Join The Board
Encourage them to join the condominium’s board of directors once they’ve settled in. This will ensure that they are connected to all of their neighbors and are up-to-date on everything with the condominium association. This is a significant responsibility, but if they are up to the challenge, they will truly be welcomed into the community when they are making decisions in the best interest of their neighbors.
