What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Aiken

It is conveniently licated to lots of stores.You can walk to most stores. It is well located to be able to walk to lots of businesses.

It is a new subdivision. It is located by a small friendly southern town. I just moved to the area so I am just learning things about it.

It is a very quiet neighborhood with very little road noise. It is real close to shopping and several parks.

I like going on hikes in the woods. I do not have many friends or much family. I am a very lonely person.

I love living in an equestrian neighborhood that is gated. Most of the lots are a minimum of 3 acres.
