What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Detroit

Houses are affordable. Easy access to streets, highways and public transportation. In great proximity to neighboring suburds

I live on a quiet street in an upscale neighborhood with a mix of original and new homes, surrounded a golf course and a lake. Stores for shopping are a couple miles away, four excellent grocery stores, some great restaurants are nearby.

It is lower cost living. My house is well built and insulated well. a waterpark is nearby, i enjoy going there.

The small mom and pop stores are great. They really get to know you cause you shop there all of the time . They are what helps living in the area

there is nothing i like living here for it has nothing to offer anyone who want a safe and quiet life

What I like most about where I live they are families that have been here for a long time so they do look out for one another
