Default Real estate prices in Hackberry?

I've been looking for a camp on the west side of the lake around hackberry for awhile and notice that theyre insanely high (~$250/sf) especially "waterfront" (on one of the 4 or 5 small canals).

Is there a parish ordinance or law against digging a new canal and improving the land to build camps, or is it just so expensive that no one can do it?

I keep reading about the influx of workers due to the LNG projects, but are those guys really impacting the real estate market on the lake/are they buying $350k camps?

Basically If real estate prices on the lake are so insane because of the lack of canals/waterfront, why hasnt anyone built more canals/lots?

Not sure but I think it has to do with everything left considered wetlands. From what I understand it has to be surveyed by the government $$$ and you have to pay to replace any wetlands you disturb which is big $$$.

Yeh I'm looking for something as well. Would rather be on the east side but would go west side too. Not much available on either side for less than an arm and a leg.

Influx of workers has very Little impact, their temporary. Living in RVs and hotels. As far as prices go, Hackberry is very reasonable compared to other coast areas. As long as you own the property, don't think they would have a issue. Call the Parish, but since you can own water in Louisiana, would not impact your property value. The only restrictions might be if you want to make a canal to another body of water. Canals in that gumbo mud take a lot of maintenance, so not cheap to keep up in tidal areas.

You better make sure you have proper permits before you remove any land considered wetlands. I looked at another lot in Angler's Bay last year and it had to have the wetland assessment which was a couple grand extra.
