These 3 luxury homes in Acadiana are for sale for more than $2.5 million | Entertainment/Life

High-end homes are a niche market. And while home sales in Acadiana have slowed overall, the market is still busy, local realtors say.

“For a while, there were no open houses on a Sunday afternoon because everything was selling without that kind of effort,” said Lisa Bucher, a realtor in Lafayette. “Now, we’re seeing up to six or eight open houses on a Sunday.”

Bucher said that previously there were up to 30 open houses on a Sunday in Acadiana.

Realtors in south Louisiana say the demand for high-end, luxury homes remains strong, even if it takes longer to sell them. 

Here’s a look at three top-dollar houses for sale in Acadiana.
