I currently live in Michigan but due to plant sale I may have to relocate. Is there anyone that could give me a rundown of the area and possibly where to look for housing. Which schools are the best? I have a junior high age daughter that is still living at home. My other kids are out of the house.

There are a couple of threads on this in the NW Indiana section. Basically the options on the Illinois side are more costly and not much better overall in terms of what younget for the money than the Indiana side. While individual situations might be different the high property taxes and unpredicstwble income tax situation in Illinois, together with need to look at spending more to purchase a house is a losing proposition.

The overall commute from a town like Homewood or Flossmore, which has some of the better schools onnthe south side, is probably tougher than coming from Indiana too...

What type of an area are you looking for>?

I know some people who live in some remote areas and commute to the South Side Assembly plant.

You could easily live in an urban area or even live in a rural setting.

For the school factor... Tinley Park, Orland Park, Orland Hills, Homewood, or Flossmoor in Illinois; and Munster, Dyer, St. John, or Schererville in Indiana.
