What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Sumter

It is quiet shopping is close. Places to eat is close it's peaceful it's lots of places to have a picnic

I like that its more affordable than other neighboring areas. I like that there are a couple restaurants near by and they are building more.

Things I like most are the diversity, the pets, and how most things are in walking distance. I like how my little sisters school is a five minute walk away.

I like living in a place with a lot of restaurants, so I always like to eat out with my family, and I like living in a place with a lot of convenience stores

I like that we're off the main road. I like that it's quiet. We're close to stores when we need to go out

the neighborhood is in walking distance of all the stores and is connected to a mainstream road, making everything easy access.
