Well, this is a pretty home and pretty good deal: a three-bedroom, one full bath home in Ft. Wayne that clocks in at $55 per square foot. The house was built in 1925, but just about everything has been upgraded: the kitchen, breakfast room, windows, basement, furnace and electrical system have all been recently updated. The dining room has beautiful oak floors and trim, and there's a gas fireplace in the living room.

Tired of hauling laundry down the stairs? The home has a laundry chute from the main and second floor. Let's go outside: how about a big yard, a big deck and wooden privacy fencing, plus a detached one-car garage? The house is a decent size, too. At 1,977 square feet, it's the second largest home on our list.
