What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Sanborn

There are quite a few restaurants in walking distance. Grocery's are close. You can go to set down restaurant in a few blocks plus a lot of fast foods

I love the our neighborhood is close to the interstate on ramp, since I work in a different town. There are restaurants and grocery stores within five minutes.

Our house itself. If we had the money we would remove it from it's foundation and move it to an acreage large enough so we can't see neighbors in any direction.

My favorite thing about living over here is how quiet it is. There isn't very much crime going on this side of town. Everyone is very nice and friendly.

It's really close to the airport and the interstate close to motelsi live right behind a bar that really quite easy to walk my dog around

What I like most about living in my neighborhood is how safe it is. It is also near a grocery store.
