What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Independence

I love the school. I love my kids have friends nearby. The neighbors are polite. I feel safe. There are convenient restaurants and shopping nearby.

Everyone is so friendly and willing to help each other. My favorite restaurant that is close to my house is Frisch's. Me and my friends always go to the movies or take the kids to the skate park.

It is older houses without block foundation. Good builds that last a lifetime. Great neighbors. Close to enough but far enough from the city.

Nice local restaurants. A conservancy in our backyard that prohibits building behind us. We have wildlife in our backyard but shops nearby so the best of both worlds.

Put to eat to the park and for walks. Grocery stores are good and just going for a scenic drive. We like spending time in our back yard as well

Good restaurants, grocery store 1mile, good schools close by. Good parks and sidewalks. Good shopping malls within 10 miles.
