What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Cary

I like how my neighborhood is closest to a lot of local businesses. This makes it easy to walk to the businesses.

We have friendly neighbors. We are 1-2 miles from shopping, dining and medical offices. Our community center has numerous clubs and recreational facilities for any interest.

It is near many convenient stores and that's about it other than that there is not much value to this neighborhood

next to great park and greenway pool and pickle ball courts close to many amenities and restaurants. Trader Joes Fresh Market Nice YMCA Universities near by

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.
