Well, you won't find that in Dyer.

I'd look to Highland or Munster ... you'll be able to find something in that price range, but it will be older (50s, 60s) and somewhat smaller.

How do you feel about a townhouse?

You may be able to find a townhouse in Dyer in your price range - newer construction too.

If you don't mind buying an older (but not very old) home, I think you may be able to find a place in highland. That is where I find the most available homes in the price range you gave.

I found one place in "Dyer"...it is really more into the St. John area...however, I do not know about how you may feel about the commute. It is easy access to 394 which connects to 94 to take you to Chicago, but it is still something you would have to consider. It is about $10,00 above the price range you listed but you should be able to get a lower price.

Here is the Dyer place...it is new:

13612 Stanton Ct, Dyer, IN, 46311 - MLS #257295 - Single Family Home real estate - REALTOR.com®

Stanton hasn't been built yet ... and that 169,900 is the base price ... plan on adding thousands to that.

That's what I was thinking too.
