3 luxury homes in Acadiana for sale for over $2.5 million | Entertainment / Life

High-end homes are a niche market. Local real estate brokers say that while home sales in Acadiana have generally slowed, the market remains crowded.

“For a while, there were no homes open on Sunday afternoons because everything was selling without that kind of effort,” said Lisa Bucher, a realtor in Lafayette. “Right now, we’re seeing as many as six or eight homes open on Sunday.”

Bucher said there were previously as many as 30 homes open on Sundays in Acadiana.

Realtors in southern Louisiana say demand for luxury and luxury homes remains strong, even if it takes longer to sell.

Here’s a look at three high-rise homes for sale in Acadiana.
