What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Murray

Nothing really unique. There is one older home that is well maintained and some nice homes built in 60s that are well maintained

My sweet neighbors and we just don't cause any trouble or make noise or litter. I feel like my neighbors would look out for me if I needed them.

It's considered one of the friendliest towns in America. I enjoy spending time at the local fire department and the gym.

I like that it's possible to get to places without a vehicle, even if it's not always super-easy to do. I also like that people don't really pry into your private affairs that much.

Like to live in a home with a supermarket, an area with sports equipment, preferably a medical station and security personnel

I love how often friendly neighbors are outside, there are great boutique stores and restaurants nearby, and the elementary school in our neighborhood is the best in the district.
