People who live in Corpus Christi know that it's the best well-kept secret Texas has to offer. Texas hospitality plus beach living? Yes, please. And for those who call Corpus Christi home, there are plenty of other draws, too: like year-round flip flops, Mexican food (and Whataburgers) galore, and the fantastic windsurfing. All it takes is one walk down Ocean Drive, and you're sold.
Another draw? Relatively low cost of living. This means that couples or families alike can find the perfect neighborhood in the perfect location, without the huge price tag. Neighborhoods in Corpus Christi are thriving, but can the same be said for their HOAs? Managing an HOA, even in a place like Corpus Christi, can be a full-time job (and a thankless one, at that). HOA management companies are supposed to help, but sometimes, they really just make things worse with bad communication, overworked community managers, and a sense that your community is just another "number" to them.
