What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hobbs

We live close to downtown. It's peaceful for evening walks. A better visual of the neighborhood would be nice to see.

I honestly don't kkke anything about my neighborhood is safe nor would I praise it. It is close to stores

I like that are always people walking outside. It's also very close to my workplace. I like that I have cops living in my neighborhood.

It is an old and decent neighborhood other than a few people. There is a fast food restaurant down the road.

It feels safe and I've lived here my whole life. I've always have had friendly neighbors. And I always felt safe in the neighborhood as a child.
