What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Reno

My neighborhood is old. The people are nice and we help each other. There is a swimming pool and a public park nearby.

The school is really great we're really close to downtown and the neighbors are genuinely OK And the price of a rat is not too bad

My neighborhood is unique because it is very close to the river and downtown while still being tucked away. I love the coffee shops in my neighborhood, as well as the churches there are plenty of grocery stores and pharmacies nearby, as well as quick places to eat being close to downtown, it's close to bars and restaurants for a night out. It's also close enough to the outdoors. There are many trails and parks nearby.

Feels secluded, charming older well kept homes, it's beautiful to walk in. Lots of squirrels and birds. Quiet and safe. Walkable to shops and restaurants.

Theres a school right across the street. Theres grocery stores a few feet away. We usually go to a park down the street. So the kids can go and be loud nd and eun around.

I like that I live close to my mom. I like this area of town . Lastly, it's near some good schools. There's some nice clean parks nearby that I enjoy walking through.
