Where would be a better safer place to live for lower crime, newer houses for sale around 150k and for a family member that needs to finish high school, Jasper or Pulaski County? And what Cities would be the better choice in these county's?

Both are rural counties ... Jasper's biggest town is Rennselaer. Pulaski is much more rural in nature ...

The schools aren't terribly big and I'm sure that if your family is looking for a quiet place to raise and educate your children, you will be happy with either place.

I second Jasper. One benefit is that with I-65, you are 90 minutes from both Chicago and Indianapolis.

Pulaski is the Wyoming of Indiana.... all 42 people would love to have you Seriously though, Winimac is a nice small town, but no where near the Interstate. Rennsalear is ok...

Thanks How about Starke or Laporte counties thrown in their? They are next door neighbor counties...
Seems remax-indiana.com brings up zero homes for sale in Rennsalear, De Motte, Collegeville,
but Remington & Wheatfield show some.

Starke County is one of the poorest counties in the state. LaPorte county has a little more going for it as it's closer to Chicago and Lake Michigan via mass transit.

I find that hard to believe that there aren't any homes for sale in those 2 counties!

I also find it hard to believe, but maybe the OP is focused on newer homes. I would not be surprised if there were not any newer homes in those areas. I cannot imagine many builders were putting up new subdivisions or spec houses in those rural counties, even at the peak of the real estate market.

Jasper county is better. Pulaski county has a number of issues...

At least Jasper county is a relatively short drive to Valparaiso which is a great area.

Not at all trying to dissuade you from picking a very rural area, but I'm just curious. Why are you choosing to live so far out in the country? Just wanted you to know that you may be able to find what you're looking for in Northwest Indiana without having to be located in such a rural county.

svillechris;

What do you mean? I didn't want to be too far from Walkerton, In or Chicago, IL or too close to Gary,In so Jasper was a choice.
