The Fastest Growing Demographic Segmentation in America

Texas continues to stand out as a hub for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in the United States, according to the Asian Real Estate Association’s 2022-2023 “State of Asia America” report.

Since 2000, the AAPI population in the United States has nearly doubled, increasing to 22 million today. Its 81% growth rate is higher than any other demographic segmentation in the United States, surging past the 71% growth rate for Hispanics, 20% growth in the Black population, and minimal change in the white population. According to Pew Research, by 2060 the AAPI population is expected to reach 46 million people.

More Than Population Growth
On average, members of the AAPI community have above-average incomes, and many are mortgage ready. Freddie Mac defines “mortgage ready” as someone 45 and younger who does not have a mortgage and would likely qualify for a mortgage. Mortgage-ready individuals have credit scores of at least 661, no foreclosures in 84 months, no bankruptcies in 84 months, and no severe delinquencies in 12 months.

AAPI In Texas
The four largest metropolitan locations in Texas—Dallas-Forth Worth-Arlington, Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, Austin-Round Rock, and San Antonio-New Braunfels—had the highest mortgage ready AAPI counts.

The AAPI community has been well established in Texas, allowing a cultural sense of belonging for newcomers. The recent trends in population growth in the AAPI community can signal only a stronger presence of homebuying in Texas for the foreseeable future.

Real Estate Agent

Born and raised in Texas! I was born in Arlington and soon moved to Grapevine when I was younger, I have called it home now for the last 15 years. I have always worked in retail and love all things fashion. Growing up, I’ve seen what a power house my mom has become through real estate and all the opportunities it offered her and our family. Working in real estate has caught my attention and interest; I cannot be more excited to start my journey. I think helping people find their dream home, investment home, starter home, or even temporary home is such a wonderful thing. It really is an amazing experience to be a part of and I’m looking forward to soon being able to be that person who gets to help!
