Lafayette is a city in which the population has grown significantly over the past couple of decades. Although the city has experienced some growing pains as a result, those who purchase real estate in Lafayette are pleased to find a rich local culture that includes museums, parks, and the arts as well as an abundance of wildlife populating the nearby lakes and swamps. Crime rates in the city, as a whole, are low, particularly when compared to other cities in the state. There is also a campus of the University of Louisiana in Lafayette.

Positioned just slightly removed from the interstate, the city benefits from the absence of a lot of non-local traffic passing through. The location also makes it a family friendly place to call home by giving it a cozy feel. It's a town in which people frequently interact with their neighbors. There are a variety of homes in Lafayette to suit all types of needs. Many families choose to purchase homes in the Southern or Southwest part of Lafayette, which tends to have the lowest crime, best schools, and neighborhoods of well kept homes and nicely manicured lawns. Because the population of Lafayette has grown so quickly, there is a fair amount of newer Lafayette real estate available. However, the area was settled in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, so older, historical homes in Lafayette are just as easy to come by for those who prefer a home that reflects the rich historical ambiance of Louisiana.
