  • Enjoy the lower cost of rental homes. The average cost of rent in LaPlace has plunged from upwards of $1,000 in 2009 to only $800 in 2012 (this was after Hurricane Isaac hit the town in 2012). Thankfully, even with new building activities back on track, rental rates remain on an affordable level compared to the state average of $1,062. Numerous development projects address the growing rental demand from new business owners and residents working around the town center. Best places to start searching for houses for rent include neighborhoods around the West Airline Highway near the Riverlands Shopping Center and Walmart, and the areas along the Belle Terre Boulevard near the First American Bank and Trust Company.
  • Cajun Sausages! LaPlace is dubbed the Andouille capital of the world, referring to Cajun-style sausages brought to town by the Acadians during the French colonial period. Thousands of visitors flock to LaPlace for the Andouille Festival every October. For those who cannot wait for this event, just drop by Jacob's World Famous Andouille on West Airline Highway or at Wayne Jacob's Smokehouse on West 5th Street, two popular diners serving strings of these savory sausages.
  • Increasing value of homes. Home value in LaPlace is growing steadily, from $87,000 in 2000 to $162,000 in 2012 or double the value over a 12-year period. This means that buying a home in LaPlace is a good investment. While home value is increasing, the average price of $138,000 for detached houses is still significantly lower than the state average of $177,000. This affordability is one of the reasons why majority of the houses are owner-occupied, and only 19% of the housing profile is made up of renters. Clearly, for increasing home value and low ownership cost, you're in for the win in LaPlace. Available homes for sale including rent to own houses can be found in the neighborhoods between Captain Bourgeois Street and the Mississippi River Trail, places which are accessible to the Louisiana Port.
