I was responding to the stats and the comparison of Chicago & Indy suburbs which are vastly different
from South Bend and Granger. I apologize if it came off the wrong way. As someone who has spent
30+ years in South Bend and over 50+ in Chicago (back and forth between the two) comparing
any large metropolitan areas to SB is over the top.

No problem. I get annoyed at people that hate on Indy because it's not Chicago. You can't compare Indy and Chicago, no way I would try to compare South Bend and Chicago. lol

Granger is a very nice place to live. Granger mostly has larger homes with two stories but there are ranch homes as well. There is also a retirement apt. complex in Granger with independent and assisted living. I have been trying to get my mother to retire here due to the lower cost of living. Another option would be some of the villas that are good sized homes with lawn care and snow removal. Some are in Mishawaka that border Granger.

The area is constantly expanding with new shopping, restaurants and the nearby hospital was a complete rebuild several years ago. In addition to the new hospital they are currently working on a new complex of medical facilities as well. We moved here about 8 yrs ago and I am amazed at the growth. There is a really nice villa in the forest sub for sale right now. Link below.

Are you looking to buy or rent?

Great place to retire. Only thing to consider would be fairly harsh winters. Lake effect snow is extremely heavy here at times. However, Granger/Mishawaka has many great retirement facilities and medical facilities nearby. You can't really go wrong living here.
