iStock_000001666571XSmallAre you looking for a secure and convenient way to get connected with your neighbors? If you live in one of the many lovely homes built by one of the trusted Home Builders in Richmond, VA you may be interested in a new app.

The Nextdoor App is available for iPhone and Android phones. This app is a social site designed especially for neighborhoods. They have been serving individual neighborhoods since 2011. Users can join for free and must show proof of residency to be admitted. You sign-in with your real name but you have the option to choose what information your would like to share on this secure site.

Nextdoor is unlike Facebook in that it is more of a utility site. It isn’t a place for self-expression, it more of a problem-solving site. It is a great place to spread neighborhood or community news. For example users can:

  • Announce Garage Sales
  • Recommend a trust-worthy babysitter
  • Organize a neighborhood watch
  • Alert neighbors of a lost pet

Nextdoor also partners with local authorities. This allows users to receive emergency alerts that are neighborhood specific.

So if you live in one of the many lovely homes built by one of the trusted Home Builders in Richmond, VA check out this new app to get connected with your neighborhood community!
