The real estate market is slim pickings right now. Unless you are flush with cash, you'll be lucky to find anything at a price you can afford in a neighborhood and school district you like, let alone one within driving distance to work.

Exactly. The Northern burbs are unfriendly and racist because that demographic has already taken over the area.

Please explain which Northern suburbs Indians have “taken over”?

Frisco: 65% white, 20% Asian, 8% black

Plano: 65% white, 21% Asian, 9% black

Prosper: 83% white, 7% Asian, 5% black

McKinney: 75% white, 12% black, 8% Asian

Little Elm: 65% white, 18% black, 6% Asian

The Colony: 76% white, 9% black, 5% Asian

Lewisville: 65% white, 13% black, 10% Asian


Whites outnumber Asians in every single northern burb by a factor of 3X - 25X.

The solution for the OP is simple. Look for neighborhoods of slightly older homes. You will find a different demographic.

Those inquiries here are very common.

Same difference. Everyone seeks their tribe for comfort.
There is a difference between wanting to have a certain community and wanting to avoid certain communities. At least since it is not zero sum and there can be multiple communities in one place.

This would be more akin to the Muslim couple looking to avoid Christian communities, the young professional Black couple looking to avoid White communities, or the Gay couple looking to avoid Heterosexual communities.

emily my advice is to tread very very carefully. we were in the same exact position as your family a few years back we wanted good schools town new house nice to decent safe neighborhood for kids to grow up in. we searched and searched and as most folks have noted here we immediately realized the north burbs of DFW was a no go but kept on going. we finally found what we thought was OK still bit of a compromise when we found a still being built out new neighborhood that had around maybe 50/50 in terms of demos but felt OK cause not like the 98/2, 99/1, or 100% breakdown of the north suburbs


net result we bit the bullet and sadly ended up having to move out less than a year after moving in. in that time we experienced what some have noted in CD maybe not unfriendly but aloofness and insular behavior among what you've called less desirable neighbors they did not celebrate any of the traditional American holidays like christmas, 4th of july, halloween, thanksgiving, memorial day, st pattys etc but instead celebrated their own home countries many many celebrations. my family and I have lived all over the country and are not against diversity but the difference we saw here in DFW was this group almost seemed like they knowingly and made no effort whatsoever to be American. most immigrants I know at least uphold some responsibility to their host countries in trying and being open to American culture, but this group is something else. net after experiencing this and also flight by the time we said enough is enough neighborhood had probably become 80/20 good luck emily

sorry for the second post this got me riled up cause it hit close to home. we did make an effort to get to know some neighbors on a personal level what we found out and was a bit shocking honestly cause I had no idea and still think it may be illegal was that most of the homes in the neighborhood were bought in bundles was purchased by IT companies and sold to them... can any lawyers on here comment on this practice?

When a person looks for their like Community, above is exactly what they are doing.

@Rakin. Agree 100% with you. @Soonhun's attempt at sounding wise with her Confucian inspired logic is a major fail.

last post for emily as I noticed it was light on advice. if you've not been scared off already another watchout is although it may seem not so "skewed" its also very common practice for these households to have more than one family in a designated single family home. neighborhood will be outnumbered in persons although maybe not in houses if that makes sense
