Fort Wayne ranked No. 1 to buy second home

Fort Wayne has been ranked the best place to buy a second home or vacation home, according to the home insurance provider Hippo. The company says the Summit City scored high because of its low cost of living and affordability of homes, both of which are below the national average. The company calls Fort Wayne a “big city with a small-town feel” and says it’s a noteworthy place to “enjoy the snow or escape the brutal summer heat.” The rest of the top five are El Paso (Texas), St. Louis (Missouri), Glendale (Arizona), and Laredo (Texas).
