Affordable Living Near Chicago

We understand that living in Indiana vs Illinois can be a tough decision! Indiana is cheaper than Illinois in nearly every area. The overall cost of living index is 7.3% higher in Chicago than in Valparaiso, and 46.2% higher in Chicago than in Michigan City. The Indiana state income tax is just 3.23%, compared to 4.95% in Illinois.

The median property taxes in Illinois are nearly triple those enjoyed in Indiana. You can get a luxurious home for a fraction of the price when you choose to live in Northwest Indiana rather than southern Illinois. All the highlights of Chicago are still easily accessible from this area. The South Shore Line will get you into the city quickly, and kids even ride for free!

Outstanding Educational Opportunities

If you’re raising a family, the local school system will rank high on your list of critical factors when choosing a home. Valparaiso and Crown Point are particularly well-known for having great school systems. Valparaiso is home to Valparaiso University, a select Lutheran private university with five undergraduate colleges.

Indiana as a state is also home to a number of outstanding public universities, including Purdue University, Indiana University, Ball State University, Butler University, and the private University of Notre Dame. If you have young adults who will soon be attending college, it’s important to think about where they might want to go. In-state tuition is far lower than out-of-state costs.

Access to Natural Highlights

Northern Indiana is home to Indiana Dunes National Park. With over 15,000 acres of prairies, forests, rivers, dunes, and marshes, this park offers a seemingly endless range of areas to explore. Northwest Indiana also has 25 miles of beaches along Lake Michigan. Smaller parks abound as well. Valparaiso alone has 14 children’s playgrounds and over 700 acres of parkland, including 23 miles of paths, two golf courses, and 27 athletic fields.

Lower Initial Maintenance Costs

When you choose to purchase a newly constructed home, everything about it is brand-new. No more worrying about repair costs shortly after closing or having to replace an appliance that you thought was in good shape. Get a new home with a modern heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning system, fresh drywall, and expertly installed flooring to save yourself some stress.

We’ll carefully construct your home to meet all current building codes and regulations so there’s no need to think about updating or refitting anything. While you might need several inspections and adjustments to get a pre-owned home up to your standards, this isn’t the case in one of our newly constructed homes, as everything is perfect for you from the beginning.

Floor Plans Made for Your Needs

At Steiner Homes, we offer a selection of three-, four– and five-bedroom floor plans ranging from around 1,800 square feet to more than 3,000 square feet. You’ll find sophisticated features such as expansive great rooms, versatile nooks, separate dining rooms, and spacious lofts. You can go for large walk-in closets, his-and-hers closets, or convenient closet spaces tucked inside the master bath. It’s easy to customize your floor plan for your family and lifestyle.

The House You Want in a Neighborhood You’ll Love

Not only can you select your floor plan with Steiner Homes, but you also get to choose the neighborhood where that home will sit. Pick the exact lot that you want to live on, whether you like a corner lot, a space in a cul-de-sac, or easy accessibility on the main road. We work all over Northwest Indiana, meaning we always have plenty of great lots to choose from in excellent communities. Choose a community that feels like home, and build your personalized house right where you want it.

A Space That’s Ready to Live In

When you move into a Steiner Home, everything is ready for you. We freshly paint the rooms in quality Sherwin Williams colors, stain the handrails, and install the trim neatly in place. We equip the kitchen with everything you need, including a garbage disposal, soap dispenser, dishwasher, and microwave hood. You don’t have to spend any time cleaning up, repairing the space, or getting it ready for move-in. It’s all waiting for you.

Here at Steiner Homes, we know that we’re not just building houses, we’re building homes. We want our customers to feel comfortable not only with the finished product but the entire home-building process. If you’re ready to embark on the exciting journey of building your new home in Lake or Porter Counties, contact our team today. We can walk you through every step of the process and help you get into your dream home.
