Tips for Dealing with Loud Neighbors

Is your upstairs Neighbor having a rave?  Loud Noises Scare me

Here are some tips for dealing with loud neighbors:

Dealing with loud neighborsI felt inspired to write this piece because I am currently going through this very situation.  Oh the noise, it’s killing me.  Some nights I feel like they are raving and some nights I feel like a wrestling match.  This past weekend they were definitely doing some sort of native dance.  You see, we live in a mid-rise building and you can sometimes get lucky where the building actually puts steel and concrete in between floors or you can get extremely unlucky where it seems as though there is just a piece of wood separating the two floors.  There are many ways to noise proof apartments and for more info go to this article.

Of course, a lot of this is just luck.  In our case, the building was well built but we just happened to get that dreaded upstairs neighbor that sounds like Andre the Giant as they walk through the apartment sounding like a stomp to a marching band when they are probably just walking to the bathroom. Sorry, just had to get that out.  There are a few steps to try that might help with this issue.

I would say the first thing would be to actually talk to your neighbor.  Let them know how much you can hear and hopefully, they will be more cognizant of their noise.  If that doesn’t work, talk to your management office.  Advise them you have already spoken with your neighbors and ask what remedies they have.

Talk to your neighborSome of them might let you move if it is too bad.  In order to validate this complaint, don’t be afraid to call the courtesy office to let them hear just how bad it is.  They always notate their calls and this will be your ammo.  Last but not least, would be to break your lease.  In my opinion, peace of mind is much better than having to put up with the tornado above for the whole lease term.  Of course, this will cost money but most apartments will allow you to break your lease by paying a penalty fee.

We definitely feel your pain if you are going through this.  If you would like to prevent leasing somewhere that was built like a matchbox, you should definitely hit us up.  WE know where these buildings are and who they were built by.  It’s just a bonus of using an apartment locator that knows what they are doing. Thanks for reading our tips for dealing with loud neighbors.

November in Dallas

November in Dallas is an exceptional time of year for Dallasites and people in the DFW in general.  The average temperature is 55f although lately seems to be in the 70s.  Not too cold and not too hot, just right.  Hey, we’re not complaining one bit but is global warming real?  Seems to be here.  All kidding aside, there are so many things to do this time of year as we count down the days until Thanksgiving and then Christmas.  Many fall festivals are happening as well as some major events and show to catch at the Dallas Arts District.dallas-arts-district

Some of our favorite happenings go on at the Dallas Arboretum.  One of the most beautiful public gardens to visit during the fall.  Autumn at the arboretum is an absolutely gorgeous time of year here and you better capitalize and get those photos done stat.  Our favorite photographer that does fantastic fall shoots is Stephanie Pina with Stephanie Pina Photography.  Ask us about how you can get free entry into the arboretum.
