What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kettering

I like we can drive quickly to services. Our family is also five minutes away from our house. We like being in this part of our town.

I like how quiet it is and for the most part everyone keeps to themselves. There's a mall nearby that has a ton of dining options. We like going to the stores and restaurants over there.

This is the neighborhood where I grew up, my children grew up, and now my grandchildren are growing up. We have great schools, park, and neighbors. We are close enough to the big city, but we don't have the problems of a big city.

It seems to be very safe people are always walking around kids are always playing outside all the yards are well taken care of I love the sidewalks to

Mutual ownership community. We have local stores on our property and a city school. We are unique and many families have lived here for more than one generation.

I have lived here for 60 years. We have a mix of people that have been here for years and are empty nester and young families just starting out. Shopping is easy, lots of restaurants, and great schools, parks, and recreation.
