What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wilmore

I live in a golf cart community, and we have many, many miles of cart paths. We can literally go anywhere by golf cart. Walmart, Target, grocery stores, dentist, restaurants, etc.

Schools are extremely close to homes making it easy to have kids get there and there are a bunch of shops packed into one area so you you are looking for something you can easily find it

What I love most about our community is the food and the convenience of transportation. and our lovely neighbors

Neighborhood is quite, friendly and inviting. The homes are well kept as is the landscaping which increases the homes value. We have social gatherings and Halloween is the best when we all dress up passing out candy.

Our neighborhood has golf cart paths for everyone to use. So if it's a nice day out you can just take your golf cart out and hang out around the city.

We are a golf cart community and have paths for carts and walking in the city. Many local businesses that are wonderful.
