Creative ways to meet new neighbors

Categories: Homeowner Tips, New Braunfels Custom Home Builders | Posted: October 18, 2019


If you have recently moved into a New Braunfels custom home, you may be wondering who your new neighbors are and what is the best way to get to know them. Weston Dean Custom Homes, shares simple ways to get to know your new neighbors and have fun while doing so!

A great and fun way to get to know your new neighbors is to throw a housewarming party at your new home. Not only does this give you a reason to ring their doorbell to introduce yourself and invite them, but it will give them a good first impression and give you the opportunity to talk to them for a longer period than just an initial introduction.

If you have a spacious backyard, you can even take advantage of the cooler Fall weather and throw a backyard get together so you don’t have to be rushed or feel pressure to setup your new home after you have moved in.

Another way to get to know your neighbors if you have kids, is to introduce your kids to the new neighbors and see if you can set up playdates together. If you have a neighborhood park, just taking your kids there for fun afternoon can put them (and you) in touch with other kids and parents in the neighborhood quickly. Kids often have no trouble making friends at the playground and it can be a good ice breaker for you to get to know fellow parents who may have kids the same age as you.

Another thing to check when you move in or if your neighborhood has an HOA, is to see if there are any community events you can attend or ways you can get involved in your neighborhood. Many neighborhoods have community Facebook pages or are a part of an online neighborhood group that posts events going on in the community that you can join or volunteer to join. Consider starting a book club with your new neighbors, or even a game night.

Even if you are the new neighbor moving in, consider bringing your neighbors a treat such as your famous homemade chocolate chip cookies. Not only will this be an ice breaker for you to stop by their home and introduce yourself, but you are sure to gain more friends than enemies with a friendly gift!

And remember, if you have new neighbors move in after you do treat them with the same respect and bring them a friendly welcome to the neighborhood treat or gift and introduce yourself. It is always a good idea to get off on the right foot with new neighbors and if you are lucky, even have them turn into good friends!

Stunning custom kitchen in Vintage Oaks community

Are you in the market this Fall for a new home? If so, Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier New Braunfels custom builder, would like to invite you home to Vintage Oaks, a stunning custom home community in New Braunfels, Texas!

Known as “Tuscany in the heart of Texas,” Vintage Oaks entices residents to Texas Hill Country by way of the sheer beauty in the panoramic views that envelop this Southstar Community from every side.  Imagine exceptional sunsets over rolling hills accented by plentiful lush oak trees; Vintage Oaks has that and so much more!

At first glance, you’ll note amenities such as a large pool and even a lazy river that’s available for every resident.  Even the outdoor kitchen is something new and exciting and not often something people will see every day.  However, this gem of a community resides in the oasis of the Texas Wine Trail, and their very own Dry Comal Creek Vineyard is an incredibly popular place to gather for tours, tastings, and time away from it all.

There’s plenty to do at Vintage Oaks and even more within minutes away from this community.  Just a few recreational opportunities include Schlitterbahn Water Park, several golf courses, Canyon Lake, the historical charm of Gruene, and San Marcos’ Tanger Outlet Center.  Tourism attractions are plentiful, and so are dining and shopping possibilities.  San Antonio’s famous Riverwalk is only a half hour away, and here is where you’ll find some of the most excellent Mexican food anywhere.  If you’re a fan of music, you’ll definitely want to make the short drive to Austin to take advantage of unmatched live entertainment.

Vintage Oaks is served by the Comal Independent School District (ISD).  Bill Brown Elementary, Arlon Seay Intermediate School, and Smithson Valley High School are highly qualified and known for their high educational standards.

We heartily encourage you to take an afternoon to visit it in person!  If you’re coming from San Antonio, take 281 North and make a right hand turn onto Highway 46.  Vintage Oaks will be on your left after approximately 10 miles, located at 1110 Vintage Oaks, New Braunfels, Texas.

So if you think Vintage Oaks is the perfect place to build the next chapter of your life, contact Weston Dean Homes to get started on building your dream home!
