Is it wrong for me to tell my realtor "no poor neighborhoods"?

You want what you want, but be prepared for a snarky reaction.

I told my builders that the school district was very important.   Median income is important as well.   The lower income towns have a median of around 40k 50k(which is extremely low income here) and the more normal, lower to middle class towns are around 95k.  I wouldn't go lower than that.   The lower income areas have a lot of crime, drugs etc.   The local HS had a mix of middle, well off too poor kids.   They had a free/reduced lunch program, but only if you qualify.   For the most part, taxes are so high here, no one poor could afford to buy a house.

They only do that in low income areas.  I would not want to live in an area where everyone gets free lunch. It is income based here, but you wouldn't want to live in the poor areas.   They are riddled with crime and drugs.  Poverty brings a lot of issues.   The kids go to school and they all have problems.   

Quoting Iguessiwasbad13: Here it wouldn't matter since everyone gets free lunch.
Quoting Anonymous 22: I told my realtor no school zones with income based free lunches, no income based housing nearby or apartments. We found a great house in the best school district and we are very happy in our neighborhood. Everyone is respectful and keeps their lawns mowed. I don't want to live around gross people.

your budget would dictate that. if you have a poor budget, that is where you would live. if it is high, richies it is.

I don't see why. People can live whereever they want, and can afford to live.
