What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Marion

The reason that I like living in my neighborhood is that I am not far from things in my town like schools and store if I need to get to them and there is a really good restaurant near me that I like to eat at and my town is little and there is not really anything much to do with kids

Lots of distance between houses with nice views. We don't have many close neighbors which is nice. Our home is very nice and unique so we don't want to leave

My neighborhood is very quiet, and it's got nice shops near buy and good restaurants. The police patrol on a regular basis too..

I like the quietness. I like how kids can play outside. I like supporting local business. It is a very calm place to live.

I love where i live because of the quitness. The streets are not nosie and there's cars don't go fast up and down the road

I like that there is a lot of nature in my area. There is a lot of small local businesses that are great and also good food.
