Often one of the hardest parts of moving to a new home is getting plugged into the community. After you have moved in, check out Nextdoor.com …created to be the private social network for your neighborhood.
I was introduced to it just a few months ago, when I saw a friend at a concert and asked how she learned about it. She said she found out about it through Nextdoor.com… and proceeded to tell me what a great private neighborhood network it is!
Of course I had to join the network for our neighborhood and now get notices almost daily about items for sale or free for pickup (like a private Craig's List)… recommendations for baby sitters, plumbers, handymen/contractors, house cleaners, etc (like a private Angie's List)… events… crime/safety alerts… lost and found pets, pet sitting… jobs.
I would guess the list would be as varied as the community you live in… everything is posted by your neighbors. And it is password protected, only open to people who live in your community and have joined the network using their real name and verified address.
