City Guide
Fort Wayne
Getting to Know You, Fort Wayne

For the record, Wayne refers to “Mad” Anthony Wayne, an American general who founded the city during the Revolutionary War. A bustling trading post city in its infancy, Fort Wayne has grown in recent years into a hub for professionals in the insurance, defense, and healthcare industries.

Like much of Northeast Indiana, Fort Wayne is geared more towards married couples, families with children, and careerists than singles and youths. The city is dotted with parks, playgrounds, a children’s zoo, and plenty of riverside trails, while the unofficial nickname, the “City of Churches,” speaks for itself in regards to the values many residents hold most dear.

But never fear, night owls: Fort Wayne is more than just a sprawling terrain filled with Suburban Suzies and Sunday morning worshippers. If you’re a live music aficionado, you won’t be disappointed by Fort Wayne. The Allen County Coliseum routinely attracts nationally recognized artists, while local haunts like the Green Frog, Legends, Club Soda, and the Mad Anthony Brewery feature bands playing every type of music from mellow acoustic rock and obscure indie rock to jazz, death metal, and pop.

The ‘Hoods of the Fort

You might hear a lot about Fort Wayne’s south side. Just be sure, especially if you’re considering this part of town, to scope it out in advance to see with your own eyes whether or not the area is a good fit for you.

Generally, the most economical apartments are located down south, but it’s very possible to find first-rate rental units pretty much anywhere in Fort Wayne that are relatively inexpensive. Centrally located neighborhoods like Forest Park, the artistically inspired West Central district, and the scenic Lakeside area boast some of the city’s most eclectic lodgings and freestanding houses. The southwestern and northwestern edges of town are home to the city’s highest income residents and also serve up some surprisingly affordable rentals. It’s not uncommon to find spacious (1000-plus square feet), modern, multi-BR apartments in these areas for less than $700, while lucky leasers can even find grandiose estates that cover 2000-plus square feet for a grand or less.

And now you’re all set to begin the hunt for your humble Hoosier abode. So welcome to Mad Anthony’s trading town, and best of luck!

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
