My overall experience in the area where I live has been fairly pleasant. Although the rent prices are increasing every year still I'm getting alot of space for my money. And if I had to compare this country with anywhere else I would consider living here in the same location again.
It is a military town. Therefore, a large portion of people are moving in and out of the area. However, there still are families that have been in the area for generations.
