Lafayette Real Estate Market

The city of Lafayette has a population of over 26,000 people, so housing options are fairly broad. Luxury homes and estates are common, which generally start somewhere over $2 million and have been known to even reach as much as $18 to $20 million, and sometimes even more. As a mid-size city, potential home buyers will also find a number of condos and townhouses occupying at least a small portion of the Lafayette real estate market, although detached single-family homes still dominate the market. For home buyers looking to capture the best of both worlds, you might also find a duplex or two listed, which can be a great entry-level option or even something to consider if you're looking to downsize. Additionally, a few cottage-style homes might be available for just under $1 million, although look for most houses for sale in Lafayette to exceed that million dollar threshold.

Included on Forbes’ recent list of the most expensive zip codes in the United States, Lafayette boasts many beautiful homes tucked into its hills and valleys. Most are gracious older residences in well-established neighborhoods. Many are on large lots; some with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, while others are afforded the peace and quiet offered by the adjacent Briones Regional Park.

Homes in Lafayette, California tend to be expensive. Single-family homes in the Reliez Valley, Happy Valley, Condit, and Lafayette Hills can run into the millions. The budget-minded might want to try their luck in Los Palos or Stanley. While homes in these neighborhoods certainly aren’t cheap, they tend to be among the more affordable homes in Lafayette.

Lafayette Community Amenities

Lafayette is a bustling Contra Costa County town that is known for its scenic landscape, hilly terrain, and for being one of the premier places to live in all of the East Bay. Its semi-rural atmosphere couldn't be more appealing to suburban home buyers specifically, and the school system here is highly regarded as being one of the best. Its location not far from the Lafayette Reservoir Recreation Area and Briones Regional Park certainly provides plenty of nearby outdoor recreation, and with the Bay Area Rapid Transit station (BART) in town, a commute into San Francisco is only about 25 minutes, making it a convenient place to live for anybody who already works in the city.

Lafayette CA is a family-friendly community with excellent public schools, a pleasant climate, and plenty of recreational opportunities. Lafayette offers convenient shopping, restaurants, and services combined with a small town atmosphere. Thousands of acres of dedicated open space with miles of hiking/biking trails, an active city recreation program, and fun-filled community events ensure that residents have access to a variety of leisure time activities.
