Home Options in Lafayette
Homes in Lafayette are a mix of mobile, modular, condo, townhome, and single family models. Mobiles and modulars may be in parks, or may be affixed on land and qualify as a single family home. Condos and townhomes abound and just as in other markets, offer the flexibility needed that balance a busy lifestyle with homeownership. The single family homes in the market are typically styled with homey architecture and have a suburban look.
As of the summer of 2022, new home builds in Lafayette tend to be near State Highway 7 and the WOW! Children’s Museum.

Whether you are looking for a new home or an established neighborhood, we are able to help you find your dream home.
Living in Lafayette: the Good
Homebuyers in Lafayette will find a host of amenities to delight all family members. Residents that have embraced their inner “dog mom” or “dog dad” will be glad to take Fido and Fluffy to the Great Bark Dog Park. Residents responsible for children will be glad to let them literally bounce on trampolines (and figuratively “off the walls'') at Xtreme Athletics. Finally, kids at heart will have fun at adult jaunts such as the Indian Peaks Golf Course, Dillinger’s Bar & Grill, or the Morning Glory Farm Fresh Cafe.
Getting around is also easy for Lafayette homeowners. Highway 7 and US 287 provide access around town and other cities. Electric Vehicle charging stations are placed conveniently in shopping areas, and Ride Free Lafayette is a free, door-to-door bus service.
Living in Lafayette: the Challenges
Living in Lafayette may not be a dream for those that have issues with driving in the snow. Residents need to have snow chains on hand due to sometimes last-minute weather changes.
Additionally, entrepreneurs and business owners that are hiring may have trouble finding employees with 2022 unemployment numbers under three percent.
