Local Reviews

I do like the affordability of where I'm living. I also like how centralized the location of where I live at in my town is; I'm not too far a distance from places I want to go to.

It is safe it is quiet my neighbors are quiet and not blasting music all night lol I also like that I can walk to a store and coffee shop within one mile.

I love that my neighbors have loved within their homes for more than 10 years. Most neighbors are very friendly and we look out for eachother.

The walkability and nearness of essential businesses, including business XXXXXX business YYYYYYY and the local neighborhood park.

I like to hang out in my free time, especially some shopping malls, so I like the neighborhood to be busy

I love that you can walk to restaurants. Lots of bike ridding, running, walking, jogging with families
