Fort Wayne is an attractive place to live thanks to its good jobs and good home prices. Those prices have been heading up, like in the rest of the country, but they’re still affordable, says Ryan Dollens, a real estate agent at Imagine Real Estate, based in nearby New Haven, IN, who also runs the blog Living Fort Wayne.
The 46802 ZIP code includes Fort Wayne’s downtown, which has been expanding with new construction and new businesses. The TinCaps, the local minor-league baseball team, is credited with kicking off the trend when it built a stadium there in 2009 and condos and new businesses went up nearby.
“The downtown expansion and the development of new businesses are bringing back people or keeping people who would [have] gone to different cities,” Dollens says, noting that there’s also a community of artists.
