5 Simple Ways You Can Help The Community

Updated: Jan 13

"How Can I Help You?"

This is a common question that we hear, but how can we really help? Here are 5 ideas that you can do to help the community.

1) Plan a Drive or Donate to a Local Charity

Go to your local charity and make a list of the things that they need. You might be surprised that some of the items that they need are things that are commonly found and underutilized in most homes. Connect with neighbors and see if they have any of these things that they may want to donate. That way, you can help those in need and at the same time, you are also helping your neighbors create more space that they can use at home.

2) Promote Local Businesses

Buying your neighbor's freshly squeezed lemonade, ordering home-baked cookies, or sharing helpful information about local food stops and other local businesses can help your community in many ways. Whenever you have good experiences about your favorite stores, try to leave positive reviews so that others may know and patronize them, too.

3) Compliment Others

Simple words of encouragement can go a long way. Sometimes, it's those little things that matter and create a ripple effect. Start complimenting others today and you might notice a positive change around you.

4) Leave It Better Than You Found It

People don't always ask for help because sometimes they don't even know when they need it. For instance, you may find your neighbor's letter outside the mailbox or an Open House sign that was taken down by the wind. It wouldn't hurt to help others by leaving things better than when you found them.

5) Buying or Selling a Home

Surprisingly, even buying or selling a home can help the community. According to a report released by the National Association of Realtors or NAR, buying or selling a home impacts a community economically. Take a look at the charts below:

As you can see, both newly-built and existing homes affect the overall economy of the country. This is because many industries play a role when it comes to buying and selling homes. You have cleaners, home stagers, contractors, realtors, lawyers, and other types of professionals involved in the process. This means that beyond the sale, you are helping other businesses and people who are seeking employment in the community.

Is It a Good Time to Buy or Sell a Home Today?

A good thing to keep in mind is, you don't have to wait when it comes to real estate. You buy real estate and then you wait. This is because real estate values continue to go up year after year. Waiting will only hurt your pocket and halt any help that might be giving your community.
