What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lamar

We are a tennis community and have a pool and close to good medical care. Close to shopping and major roads. Good schools in the district.

What's unique is that there are many different animals in my neighborhood, like dear. Stores are also very close by, like Harris Teeter, so I can just walk there.

The feeling of safety and quiet is great as well as a fair bit of sidewalks that are well lit to permit walks safely.

Its a suburb of a big city that is safe . You have a smaller town feel but access to big city stuff.

I like the appearance of the neighborhood. I also like the convenience of being close to shopping, schools, and restaurants

I LOVE having a greenway in the back of the neighborhood. Lots of families and kids safely riding bikes. I like being close to everything. I love all the big old trees.
