Looking for a place to live? Fort Wayne is here for you, Millennials

The study, done by David Chen for the website www.millennialpersonalfinance.com, looked at six key factors when reviewing 500 cities across the country:

Unemployment rate, percent of residents between the ages of 25 and 34, cost of living, future job growth, transportation costs and crime and safety.

Fort Wayne ranked along the likes of Plano, Texas; Lakewood, Colorado; and Allen, Texas. Chen ranked Bozeman, Montana and Sioux Falls, South Dakota as the best places to live for Millennials.

“After graduating, many young adults spend some time living at home in order to find their first full-time job or save up some money,” Chen wrote on the website. “While this is definitely a beneficial move for a limited amount of time, the inevitable will eventually come knocking…mom and dad saying it’s time to move out.”

If you’re already here in Fort Wayne when that happens, you are in luck. Cost of living is relatively cheap — both when buying a house or renting an apartment.

We’re pretty safe, too.

And the entertainment options are ever increasing.
