How Can Putting On Events In Your Community Increase Demand and Increase Values? 

4-1-2010

What does putting on events do for a community? If there are events taking place in a neighborhood people are more apt to take care of their properties and lawns which ends up encouraging other to do the same. When outside people come to the neighborhood they notice that the neighborhood is kept up and clean. In addition when newcomers visit it plants a seed about the reputation and quality of the residents as well as puts the homes on display. People want to live in a fun and welcoming community so putting on these events gives life to a quiet or drooping neighborhood. People want to have fun and these events help the residents meet each other as well as network with others who have in interest in keeping the neighborhood strong. When a neighborhood is personable people work and try harder to keep it great.

Here are some examples of events you can put on in your neighborhood: 

1. Wine tasting

2. Dog shows

3. Poker nights and card games

4. Community garage sales

5. Neighborhood home tours

6. Rehab neighborhood tours
