LOL MckinneyOwnr. I used to live in 75093 and wish I had gotten more for my house when I sold it since the average is supposedly wealthy.

Default The New Census Data is Here!

The US Census just put out the 2010 American Community Survey results. Looking at the 5 year ACS numbers (what I generally refer to), median household incomes for University Park, Colleyville and Southlake were relatively unchanged (differences of 2K or less). However, Highland Park's median household income had a HUGE jump upward, from 176,375 on the 2009 survey to 228,106 on the 2010 survey.

That's a ~52K INCREASE, which (to put it into perspective) is about the same as the median household income in the entire Metroplex.

Lots of Dallas proper's most elite areas are not included on the zip code lists because the zip codes encompass surrounding areas that are far less nice.

For example- 75220 with the huge mansions extends westward through lower income neighborhoods almost all the way to 114 (past i35)

75209 with large Bluffview mansions encompasses many areas surrounding Love Field that are lower income

75229 with large Preston Hollow homes (around Inwood and Royal) extends from North of Walnut Hill to LBJ ALL THE WAY from i35 to Central Expressway (obviously not all high income)

75230 (which includes one of-if not the- the wealthiest census tract) includes apartments near central

Its interesting to look at the boundaries. If you google a zip code number like "75220" the preview of Google Maps shows the boundaries which is a fun tool (at least for me). So basically what I am trying to say is its hard to get a good idea of Dallas's top wealth when looking at Zip Codes
