Isn’t it time you found out who your neighbors are?
Have you ever asked yourself “Who lives on my street?” I think that it’s a question that most people ask at some point and sadly, few of us actually take the trouble to find out. You should find out something about your neighbors because it’s so easy to do now as I will show you.
It’s a very common question when you’ve just moved into a new area and you don’t know anyone. If you are lucky then some of them will come and introduce themselves to you. This might happen a lot in TV soaps but I’m not so sure about real life. I think that you might have to make the effort yourself.
Check out the street before you move in
If you are about to move into an area or you are just thinking about purchasing a property then it would be a very good idea to check out the neighborhood and do a little background checking on the people who live in the street. Make sure that you are moving into a good area before you make the decision.
What do you know about your neighbors?
If you have lived in your street for some time then there is a good chance that you still don’t know the names of everyone in the road. That can sometimes be a little embarrassing especially when you meet them on the street while out walking. Even if you know their names you probably don’t know anything about them. They could be criminals for all you know.
How to get a list of names of people who live on a street
The obvious way to find out who your neighbors are is to go out and meet them. Knock on their doors and introduce yourself. It will take time and you may have to go back several times before you catch everyone at home but it can be a very pleasurable experience and often leads to some great friendships.
Knocking on your neighbors doors is best done soon after you move in because that’s when it feels like the right thing to do. It’s not very practical to do though if you don’t live there yet or you are just considering buying a place in the street. If you have lived there for some time then the thought of going door to door in your own street might seem a little daunting. So what else can you do?
How can I find out who lives on my street without knocking on doors?
Not so long ago the only way to find out who lives on a particular street was to go out and meet them, or to ask people that you already know on the street. Today it can be so much easier and you don’t have to talk to anyone. You can search for people who live in your area on the Internet. You can do it quickly and without the risk of any embarrassment.
All you need is a membership to a low cost public records web site and you will have everything you need to start your list of names of people who live in the street.
When you do a background check on someone using a good public records web site it will give you the names and addresses of possible neighbors of that person. You can then background check the neighbors and in turn, their neighbors too. You can carry on doing this until you have a list of people who live in the street. You will also have access to a lot of information about these people.
