Hi,

My Husband and i are moving to Dallas from India and would want to get some tips on good accomodation etc. I'll be working with SAP (office in Irving) and my husband's office will be in North Dallas (75240). Can somebody please provide tips/options for good housing in these areas? We would ideally prefer to stay closer to atleast one of the 2 offices. Which area should be better?

Any help would be much appreciated.

zip code 75063 is the Northern section of Irving called Valley Ranch. Very nice. High population of India Nationals.

Valley Ranch would be very good. If you have kids make sure you are in the Coppell ISD zone.
Coppell itself would be another option. It too has a nice size Indian population.

Good Luck and Welcome!

Yes, looks like Dallas Fort Worth has become the favorite American city for Indians. Carrollton is also a good suburb with many Indians and Indian grocery stores and other stores and is centrally located.

Thanks all for the suggestions. Any good apartments that you would like to suggest in the Valley Ranch area? How abt Las Colinas area? Is there any good housing available there?
We're open and comfortable with any location and not necessarily an 'indian' location only as long as its nice and has the basic amenities closeby.
A location in between Las Colinas and North Dallas 75240 is what we're looking at. Wouldn't carrolton be slightly off the route?

Las Colinas has tons of luxury apartments. Where in North Dallas? Carrollton might be a good or bad location depending on where your Dallas destination is.

Las Colinas = zip codes 75038, 75039 and part of 75062
Valley Ranch = Zip Code 75063

I'd suggest Valley Ranch to you primarily because it's a clean, safe, diverse and progressive community that's well situated within the DFW Metroplex. It just happens to be popular with many Indian people.

As Squirl said; you have to watch out in Carrollton. There are good and bad areas that border each other. No such issues in Las Colinas/Valley Ranch.

You're very lucky, your work area in Irving is near quite a lot of Indians.

Las Calinas is an amazing area in Irving to live in. You have an Indian restaurant in Ircing itself called Mayuri, and you have many restaurants and Indian grocery places in Irving.

You'll have a great time there, it's a gorgeous city.

My dad also does SAP/Computer consulting, and Accenture has an office in Irving so does Celanese, both my mom and dad have worked in both, which one are you working in? I can recommend some good homes (apartments) but it depends on which one.
