What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Augusta

I like living in the country. I do like the area. I also like living in Georgia. I also like our home and the way it is decorated and set up.

I like the amount of trees and parks in the area. I like the fact that it is convenient to malls and stores.

The only way I could see the difference was to use the word on a map to make the point about how much of the world was in a region of a single country in which there were only a handful or a handful that

There are a lot of restaurants and fast food joints in my area.Also a grocery store within walking distance

There is only 3 gas stations around you have to go far away to get to the nice restaurantt.Its quiet around the neighborhood but it's still crime and violence.

I like the peace and quiet the most. The neighbors are very friendly. Our neighborhood is unique in that for the most part everyone gets along.
