SW Fort Wayne tends to be known as the rich "snobby" area. NW also tends to get this. NE Fort Wayne is more of the middle income families and is a very popular/more affordable region of the city.
Unless you are on a tight budget, I would avoid renting anything south of the Maumee river and east of Ardmore Avenue.
Hope this helps!
