What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lenoir

I like the price of the house I like that it is close to the grocery store I like that it is pet friendly

I like that we can be outside in our neighborhood and feel safe. Have to drive a bit to get to restaurant but I like not being right in town.

It's a very quiet and nice community. I like that it's close to Hickory because I like going to the mall.

I really can't name ANYTHING I like about where I live except my own personal space my home and yard.... Things I am in control of.

quiet country living with all the ammenities of a large town living like living in the country but not people are nice and friendly for the most part

My neighborhood is primarily retired teachers so it is very quiet. It is not a bad area to live but you need a car to travel to stores.
