Even though it's a quiet little town, it seems like there's always something going on to do. Everyone knows everyone.
The houses here are all rented out by individuals. So maintenance isn't something that happens often. There are a few houses here that are.abandoned, but most houses have new residents the very next day. I pay 725 a month, water and power included. That's about average. My landlord has about 25 other properties all around the same price. He's not known for maintenance or yard work. Lawnmowers are always being stolen, so unless you have a garage you don't mow your grass
