What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Corpus Christi

HEB is very close by as well as Family Dollar. The neighbors that do introduce themselves usually will watch out for you and your property.

I like the parks, the dogs, and the spaces. It is unique being so close to poverty next to richness. And the school is good but too many sesual offenders

The prices for these items are very go hybrid but I have not received the offer more od. Just let me to be sure what. My order only had a couple.

It is very close to the grocery store and plenty of restaurants to eat around the area. It is also not that far from the main highway.

I like that there are a lot of families. There is very good Mexican food restaurants. I like that there are lots of pets like cats and dogs.

Nothing special about it it's a very poor neighborhood there's nothing special there's drugs crime prostitution nothing special here nothing I like p
