Aujourd’hui est la Journée international de la francophonie dans toutes les régions francophones du monde. Ce soir, vous êtes invité à la Cité des Arts (109 Vine Street au centre ville de Lafayette) où il y aura le visionnement d’extraits du documentaire “L’Acadie, l’Acadie” suivi par une conversation sur la franco-responsabilité et la mobilisation avec des acteurs clés du mouvement franco-louisianais.  “L’Acadie, l’Acadie” (1971) documente le mouvement des étudiants de l’Université de Moncton au Nouveau-Brunswick à la fin des années 1960 et leur quête pour les droits linguistiques des francophones dans cette province canadienne.

Le tout commence à 18:30. L’évènement est gratuit et ouvert au public. J’y serai et j’espère voir plusieurs d’entre vous!

Today is International Francophonie Day throughout the French-speaking world. Come celebrate tonight at Cité des Arts (109 Vine Street, downtown Lafayette) with scenes from the 1971 documentary “L’Acadie, l’Acadie,” followed by an open discussion about “franco-responsabilité” and activism with key actors in the Louisiana francophone movement. “L’Acadie, l’Acadie” documents the Université de Moncton students’ movement at the end of the 60s as they sought linguistic rights for French-speakers in New Brunswick, Canada.

The event start at 6:30pm. It is free and open to the public. I will be there and hope to see many of you!

Commercial Space in Youngsville: 204 Church St, New Price!

I wanted to let everyone know that we have reduced the price of this great commercial property located at 204 Church Street in Youngsville, 70592. The space was recently used as a spa but it would also make great offices for attorneys, chiropractors, or something similar. I still think that it would also make a great flea market with plenty of space for vendors’ booth or it could be a salon and spa again.

The price is now only $200,000! What an opportunity!

Lafayette and Acadiana Home Sales: February 2013

It looks like our winter was quite short in terms of real estate seasons. Home sales usually slow down in the fall to pick back up in the spring. This year, winter started late (December) and it looks like spring began in February.

Residential sales in Lafayette Parish and Acadiana

Home sales in Acadiana saw their lowest point since last summer in January while the lowest for Lafayette parish was in December.

We had a great year in 2012 in the Lafayette area and Acadiana. This year may be even better if the numbers hold up. Looking at sales in January and February of this year and comparing with the same period last year, is revealing.

We are off to a great start for 2013. If you are on the sidelines about buying or selling, what are you waiting for? Contact me today to start your search or to receive a market analysis for your home.

13509 Plantation Pl in Abbeville: New Price, Great Home!

I love this home located at 13509 Plantation Pl south of Abbeville and we just reduced the price to $115,000! True, it’s been on the market for a couple of month and still haven’t found the right buyer. One reason is that the home is “out there” near Mouton Cove, or as some would say, “out in the boondocks.”

I know however, that it would make a great home for someone who works in Abbeville (a 10-mins ride) or south of it or a great weekend getaway for someone needing a quiet place or retreat. The house sit on about 1/2 acre and from it, not a neighbor can be seen. Across the streets are woods and you may even see a deer every now and then. It is a very peaceful place.

The home features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, 1442 square feet, is in move-in condition and is very clean and well kept. The home was totally renovated after Rita and elevated to 2 feet above the required elevation, which saves you money on insurance. The home is also equipped with heavy duty hurricane shutters on windows and doors that make it a snap to close it up (and takes about 10 mins).

The spacious patio at 13509 Plantation pl in Abbeville, LA

Outside, there is the front porch, a large patio area in the back, a workshop, and a hot tub for those lazy Louisiana afternoons.
