Anywhere in Merrillville would be a good area for a starter home. A good price for an investment property to be used as a rental would be anywhere between $50,000 and $$80,000 depending on how much updating and repair work you would be willing to do. a 3 bedroom can generate between $1000-$1500/month depending on condition and size.
