The Valparaiso Community
When searching for properties in Valparaiso, I can assist you in finding the perfect home. As a native of Valparaiso, and as a very experienced and accessible agent, my clients have enjoyed working with me. According to the National Association of REALTORS, over 92% of people begin their search online. No matter where you start, be sure to interview your prospective agent for community knowledge, real estate experience, and accessibility via text, phone, and email. I enjoy being my client's personal guide and representative, by sending you the latest listings and introducing you to the community, no matter which location you choose. La Porte County and Lake Counties are other places where I have handled properties.
As the county seat of Porter County, Valparaiso (referred to as Valpo by locals) has a diverse economy, higher education options, a new Porter Hospital and excellent medical care, and a vibrant downtown. You'll find restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and culture in this renewed downtown. The new amphitheater and it's grounds host community gatherings, music festivals and events, farmer's markets and more. The city even has plans to add ice skating and expand the park further with concessions. Neighboring Valparaiso University, Ivy Tech, and Purdue University North Central offer higher education, and the school districts of Valparaiso, Washington Township, Boone Grove, Morgan, Wheeler or Union Township, Andrean (Catholic), and Duneland (Chesterton) all serve Valparaiso residents.
Whether looking for single family homes, townhomes, or condos in the Valparaiso area, the supply will vary depending upon the time of year and the location you prefer. Patio, townhome and condo clusters are not only found in the older southside subdivisions such as Heritage Valley, but also in the newer communities such as Timberbridge, Keystone, and Pepper Creek. Other neighborhoods include Forest Park, Harrison West, Beauty Creek, Cherry Hill, Tuscany, Sylvan Manor, and many more. Single family homes are found throughout the city, and prices generally start in the upper $80s and range toward $1M, with median house price in Valparaiso historically settling in around $175,000. New growth and development is happening on the fringes of the city of course, with the most energy near the Highway 49, US 30, IN 2 and IN 130 (Lincolnway) corridors, trending toward the employment bases around the industry and Chicago to the north and west.
