Are you in the market to buy a new home in Northwest Indiana? If so, our team at The Jana Caudill Team can help you to find the perfect home for you and your family. Not only should you be thinking about what type of home you want, but also where you want to live. Here are some of our favorite spots and best places to buy in Northwest Indiana

Crown Point

Located just an hour’s drive from the loop with a population of just under 31,000, Crown Point, Indiana is one of the best places to buy in Northwest Indiana. Residents in Crown Point have a high quality of life. The city maintains a vigorous park district that’s perfect for those who enjoy being outside or who have little ones with energy to spend, and the square is full of boutique shops, coffee shops, restaurants, and more. This is definitely one of the best places—if not the best place—to live in Northwest Indiana. 

St. John

Right up there with Crown Point is St. John. Like Crown Point, St. John has a booming real estate market with home prices that keep rising. Also about an hour’s drive from the loop, St. John boasts high-quality restaurants and shops, parks, and one of the best public school systems in the area. For young, high-income earning professionals and families with children, this is one of the best places to live. 


One of the things that we love most about Valparaiso is the strong sense of community that those who live in this town experience. Indeed, the city is passionate about maintaining a great park system and putting on regular community events—it even has its own festival and events committee! With a low crime rate, lots of boutique shops and restaurants, and a strong local economy, this town is an ideal place to call home. It also has a great public school system, making it perfect for families with young children, and it’s home to the largest Lutheran faith-based university in the state. 


With one of the lowest crime rates in the state and a school district that regularly receives performance awards from the State of Indiana, Schererville isn’t a town that you want to overlook if you’re buying in Northwest Indiana. What’s more, Schererville has a smaller population of just over 22,000 people, making it feel more like a small town with strong community ties than a large city. However, if you love city life, you’re not far from downtown Chicago for all of the entertainment you could want. 


Located just 30 minutes away from the loop—making it an ideal place for commuters—Munster is more affordable than many of the other cities listed above, has a Grade A school district, and boasts plenty of great restaurants, parks, and shops. For those who commute or want a quiet lifestyle with access to the big city, you can’t beat the fact that downtown is only 30 minutes away.
