  • $49,900


Cheap Land in Louisiana near Lafayette

Just a couple minutes down the road from Lake Martin on the west side of Lafayette, this unrestricted lot offers a perfect harmony of country life and city conveniences.

  • Cleared & Build-ready
  • Paved Road Frontage
  • Only 2 minutes to Lake Martin & fishing
  • Power & Water Available
  • Quiet, Peaceful Neighborhood
  • Priced about 20% Below Market

PROPERTY: This 3.47 acre lot is cleared grassland on the front half of the property and wooded on the back half. It features about 181 feet of direct frontage on Cypress Island Hwy, a paved public road. There are no structures on site, but power and water does run along the road frontage so the whole package is very ready for your development. It’s ready for anything, in fact, because there are no restrictions here! The lot is generally flat and, since wetlands only affects the farthest back portion of the tract (roughly just 0.33 acres), it’s very buildable. In fact, about 10 other homes have been built in this peaceful, little neighborhood. Anglers will enjoy living just a couple minutes away from Lake Martin, probably the best fishing hole in Lafayette, but if saltwater is more your style, the coast is only an hour’s drive south at Cypremort Point State Park. The city of Lafayette just 10 minutes away has got your back with all the shopping and entertainment you’ll need, offering all the big box retailers like Costco, Walmart, and Home Depot. Stop by Drew Brees’ Surge Entertainment amusement park for some of the best family fun you’ll find in the entire state. If you’re looking for that perfect “Goldilocks” zone for your next house – country living but with the city at your fingertips – you’ve found it!

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.


WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).

DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
