What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lansing

I like my house, it's layout and size. The area is mostly older people who are retired, with the kids moved out. The homes and area are quiet, minimal traffic, and low to no crime. Banks, drug store, and convenience store are all within an easy walk. Nice shade. All homes have porches and in good weather people sit outside and enjoy nature. Yards are well kept with landscaping including some seasonal flowers. Most homes do some fall and Christmas decorating.

There's a lot of good restaurants and coffee shops here. There is Mancino's and Biggby. We have Walmart and Kroger

Its quiet prppertys large enough to shoot and hunt but theres neighbors close enough that if the place catches on fire some one will call it in before it burns to the ground

My neighborhood is great for walking. There are a dozen restaurants within two miles. There is also a huge gricery store nearby - a five minute car ride.

I'm not sure honestly. I don't really pay attention to that kind of stuff. Not really my kinda thing

All may favorite restaurants and coffee shops are near by. Small town where everyone knows everyone. Sociable community.
