Sugarcane season is here again and with that come the dust and dark clouds of the cane burning in our area but also the Louisiana Sugarcane Festival & Fair in New Iberia. The Sugarcane Festival features various venues throughout New Iberia: blessing of the crop, carnival rides, food court, 4-H su...
This is a quick snapshot of home sales so far this year in Acadiana and it shows that sales are up a little over 17% compared to last year. As we can see, most price ranges saw an increase in sales this year except for a couple in the higher ranges. This is of course good news for Lafayette and A...
We've just reduced the price on this wonderful Acadian style home centrally located at 203 Great Plains in Lafayette, LA.

I can show you any home that is listed for sale in our local MLS, which covers the parishes of Lafayette, Vermilion, St. Landry, St...
I think we can safely say that most of the numbers are in for August. Needless to point out that Isaac disturbed our home sale numbers. The end of the month is when many sales occur and some of the closings that were scheduled for last week got pushed into September. And while sales were down for...
So I came back from Canada just in time to prepare for Isaac with hardly any time to even unpack my suitcase.
