What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Alabaster

There is nothing really unique about our area. It is a suburb of a major city and fairly quite. There is not anything really local other then chain stores. There are parks and churches nearby.

Great neighbors. Quiet. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Pet friendly. People care about maintenance of their yards and homes.

That it is quite and close to restaurants we like going to jacks to eat and our neighborhood is unique each street is named after trees

It's cheap but safe. Maintenance and the landlord handle requests in a timely fashion. There is a laundromat within walking disance

for the most important part in my class and i was. hey honey i'm gonna was a little fun day at. hey honey i'm gonna was a little fun but we got lots to eat so.

The thing I like the most about my neighborhood is even though it is in the city we have trees on two sides for privacy.
