Working With Steiner Homes
Our team at Steiner Homes will act as your personal chauffeur through the entire home-building process. We’ll be at your side every step of the way to make this complex process feel smooth and simple. We take the time to get to know each and every client at the very beginning of the construction process, so we can make sure that you arrive at the home of your dreams. We offer beautiful floor plans to get you started and a wide range of customization options so you can make the floor plan your own.
Moving to Northwest Indiana
When you’re searching for a new home, location is everything. Northwest Indiana is a great place to live, offering the best of everything. You’ll enjoy access to both urban amenities and natural highlights from one idyllic location. Here are some of the things that you’ll enjoy living in Northwest Indiana.
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. Crown Point and Valparaiso 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.
Benefits of Working with Builders in Northwest Indiana
Investing in a new-construction home offers a wealth of benefits over purchasing a pre-owned home. When you choose to build your house with Steiner Homes, you have the opportunity to create a custom living space that’s personalized for your exact needs. There’s a lot to enjoy with a home that’s constructed just for your family.

Lower Initial Maintenance Costs
When you choose to purchase a newly constructed home, everything about it is brand-new. This means that you won’t discover the need for pressing repairs right after you close on your dream home. You’ll have all-new appliances, fresh drywall free from holes and damage, a modern HVAC system, and flawless flooring.
Your home will be carefully constructed to meet all current building codes and regulations, so there’s no need to think about updating or refitting anything. Where you might need several inspections and adjustments to get a pre-owned home up to your standards, you’ll know that everything in one of our newly constructed nwi homes 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. 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. The rooms are already freshly painted in quality Sherwin Williams colors, the handrails are newly stained, and all your trim is neatly in place. The kitchen is equipped 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.
