What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Buford

We are very close to downtown. So lots of entertainment and restaurants near. Very safe neighborhood to be in, and walk around downtown, even at night.

I like the large shopping malls near my community, because I can go shopping anytime and anywhere to replenish the necessities of life.

My neighbors are very nice. Located in the middle of great shops. And I have a small commute to work.

I like to go with my friend and family to the Park in my neigborhood, the lake , and to walk though the streets of my neigborhood to exercise

I live in an ordinary place, personally feel OK! Downstairs, there is a heavy traffic, downstairs near the food market, there is to buy breakfast! The reason is that there is a feeling of home, heart live particularly comfortable! Don't compare with others, don't compare with others! Just live your little life! In the completion of the task, please give me a "like", thanks

Kroger is within 5 minute walk. Some restaurants are within walking. A nice mixture of age groups live in the neighborhood.
