You heard the verdict on the water. Just wanted to chime in with a few benefits. Lake Michigan water is becoming increasingly costly with Chicago and Indiana providers raising rates in huge increments. I live in this area and have well and septic. First of all, an unincorporated area has less rules (no municipality) which can be a good thing and a bad thing but also less taxes. Wells cost very little to maintain and you can purchase fiters to make the water bottled water quality. If you are looking for larger yards and more rural quiet environment in this area, often well and septic going along with the deal. Just wanted to give you another side to the story. This is a nice area and has many benefits a subdivision can not offer.
I would be happy to give you more information or help you with all aspects of your search.
