Find your match
Your perfect home is right here
You can find precisely the home you want in the Fort Wayne area, and here’s some data to guide you, thanks to the 2009-2013 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Old house elegance
Find the best woodwork, timeless styles and porches galore in the city’s older neighborhoods and the best-preserved small towns. Ask about West Central, Williams-Woodland and two ZIP codes. First 46807 (median home value $82,200) and lately 46805 ($80,700) are gaining good reputations on their own as desirable, fun, hip places to live. West Central is in 46802 ($52,000), but restored mansions there will cost a lot more. Watch the areas east and south of downtown, 46803 ($42,900) and 46806 ($50,500), and northwest of downtown, 46808 ($77,100), as the next ones to take off.
Steady, stable value
The area’s small towns offer steady growth and stable value, too. Check out Churubusco ($142,500), Monroeville ($111,000), Yoder ($104,200) and Woodburn ($123,000).
Suburban growth, postwar style
It may be the mid-century style or the compact size that draws you to postwar homes and neighborhoods. We have lots to choose from.
New Haven ($106,100), northeast Fort Wayne in 46805 ($80,700) and 46815 ($114,200) and far southeast Fort Wayne in 46816 ($85,100). Southwest Fort Wayne’s 46809 ($83,700) and 48819 ($100,800) where homes were built out in the 1950s and 1960s, respectively, are a special case, very tempting to certain design tastes.
New suburban boom
Since the 1970s a new suburban boom has transformed the landscape with entirely new styles and kinds of homes. Here’s where to find them.
