Are You a Good Neighbor? Here's How to Know

While the old saying, “good fences make good neighbors,” may ring true for some, a new study out could indicate they may not be needed as much these days. According to realtor.com®, there's a 75 percent chance that the folks you live next to consider you a good neighbor. This is according to realtor.com's recently released Good Neighbor report, which found that you don’t necessarily have to be friendly to be considered an easy person to live next to; rather, realtor.com notes that merely being quiet and respectful of others' property is enough. "While it's true that some people focus on what annoys them about their neighbor, it's a welcome surprise to see that people generally think positively of their neighbors," says Nate Johnson, chief marketing officer at realtor.com. "Trust and dependability plays an integral part in helping a neighborhood feel like 'home.'" The report, which was prepared by Harris Interactive and surveyed more than 1,000 participants across the U.S., found that the best trait in a neighbor is trustworthiness (chosen by 59 percent of respondents), and 67 percent of respondents indicated that being disrespectful of property was the worst trait a neighbor could have. Although 77 percent of those surveyed are satisfied with their neighbors in general, women (8 percent) are more likely to say they aren't; just 5 percent of men responded similarly. Below is an infographic displaying some of the key findings of the Good Neighbor report. To view the original report and for a full breakdown of the methodology, click here.
