We are new to Munster from the south suburbs of IL.
The schools here are wonderful, there are plenty of nice parks, and the crime rate is quite low. Munster homes cost a little more than other surrounding communities, but when we looked at houses in the Orland Park area as well as DuPage County (IL), we would have paid anywhere from $40K to $80K for the exact same home, so it's a bargain compared to IL. Taxes here are also lower.
We looked at Du Page as well. The two year old 2. 400 sq ft home with a 1/3 acre lot I bought in Munster would have run me appx 800-900K in Western Springs, Clarendon Hills, or Hinsdale. Not to mention that I would have paid more than double in taxes. And that I probably would have never found a lot as big.
And I'm also sure Munster is a better high school than LT, although I'm not sure that its better than Hinsdale Central.
