What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Framingham

It's very quiet, the grounds are well maintained.The area is very quiet. The location is very convenient.

It's close to open space areas. A good area for walking. Multiple cable operators for broadband use.

close to an outlet mall, variety of dining options, several options and commuting is easy with ample public transport

Our streets are tree-lined and we have a beautiful yard. Our street is dead-end and we live up on a hill. We're next to the schools.

Super convenient. Near train stop . Several ponds and trails. Lots of great local restaurants that are walkable from my residence.

The things I like most about living in my neighborhood are the large semi-private backyards and the neighbors.
