Plan on moving to Laporte, Indiana AREA and will be looking for a rental for 3 people.
Any experienced renters input would be greatly appreciated. Preferably a Townhouse/home/duplex/ and lastly apartments.

I am moving back to the USA from overseas, and my wife and stepson have never lived in cold weather, but kept telling me they can't wait, they are so tired of hot weather!

Will not have a car, place to stay, just our luggage and shirts on our backs when we arrive.

Any help from Indiana Hoosier's out there, we soon will be joining the community...

Briarwood Townhomes are the newest, but they are a little pricey... around $1300. They also have a few new apartments buildings start around $800.

If you're able to live nearby, there are more renting options in Valpo and more to do.

Thanks for the reply;
Valpo is too far from Laporte, I have seen homes for rent in the $900 range, but they don't pop up too often.

Unfortunately, most of the houses I've seen pop up for rent are really rough looking and/or in rough areas.

My first choice would be Briarwood. It's more expensive, but it's the least run down and seems relatively safe.

The Commons and Maple Tree are cheaper (they are behind Briarwood) but they are a bit run down inside. Maple Tree has a lot of kids living there.

Carriage House and Roselawn are more run down that the Commons and Maple Tree. Roselawn had some trouble with car break-ins a while ago.

Fox Village and Country Acres are the most run down. The cops are constantly at Fox Village for drugs.

Some great info...
The homes I have seen for rent were on craigslist, anyone have any luck with that?
Remax indiana doesn't seem to be much help unless your buying/selling a home
