What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Birmingham

I love knowing my neighbors been here for years. The traffic isn't bad at all and lots of restaurants and cafes. We have a Waterpark, sports and other entertainment fairly close.

I like that the rent is in my budget. I like that my neighbors are older people so its pretty quite.

I enjoy walking in my neighborhood every day. I like being close to Walmart and Publix. I also like shopping at Hobby Lobby.

They have a good mix of chain and local stores. My favorite coffee shop is a locally owned one. The neighborhood is very clean and friendly.

Cost of rent for the size of home we have. Having a home the size we have allows us to have our friends and family gather for holidays. Access to the interstate is fairly easy and traffic is never a problem here.

I love that it's quiet, mostly older people live here, it has a few nearby grocery stores, there are decent nearby restaurants, like seafood restaurants, McDonald's, burger king, Publix,
