Hope your little barb was not headed my way.

It actually sort of does because they know better than people who do not live in the local area but still comment as if they know...

Hi Frenzyrider and neighbor, I am not active enough on this forum to have experiened what CollinCoCitizen may be referring to, but it looks like you have obviously also seen the "new homeowners who are also new to this area, want validation of their choices". 18 months ago I am glad I followed up on your advice on this forum re different home builders I had asked about. Your advice was definitely one of the factors in our eventual home builder chocie.

A physiotherapist from my hospital started building in Lawler Park but backed off once he found out that it is an overwhelmingly Indian neighborhood. He is an Indian American himself but he wants to raise his children in a diverse neighborhood.

That's going to be the case in many new construction communities in the Frisco area. I wanted diversity in neighbors as well (I'm Indian American), but almost every new construction development we went to in the area had either a lot of S. Asians touring or in the neighborhood b/c they lived there. I'm sure there are exceptions. Though, I do find it odd that someone would give up thousands in deposits after starting to build just bc they found that out.

That's the first case of "Indian" flight I think I've ever read, LOL

I found it odd as well but he used to work in Frisco and after joining Dallas campus, prospect of commuting from Lawler Park to Dallas wasn't sitting well either.

@Nissan,

Would 145 per sq ft be a good range

Haha! I am sure he is already tired of all the indian doctors around him so wanted to stay in a "diverse" neighborhood. It is strange to me though that indian americans like to stay away from indians but other 2nd generation nationals stay together for example the jewish community in richardson... Is that a wrong observation?
