What better way to experience a unique growing community than to attend a local artisan market?

Introducing the creators of TRIANGLE POP-UP, Sarah Moody and Max Rivera! Sarah has a unique artist flare that shines in the quality of artists and makers she attracts to every one of their Triangle Pop-Up market events. Every artist puts their heart and soul into their handmade items to produce quality gifts for others or a special treat for yourselves. When Max stepped up the business end of these local markets, TRIANGLE POP-UP took off running and hasn’t looked back. Their markets are popping up at Raleigh Food Halls, local breweries, the Campus of NC State and more!

Max and Sarah are big COMMUNITY supporters so promoting local businesses with local artists has just come naturally for them. Their markets have grown to as many as 75 artists and always include special local food trucks too! They have even added various local raffles to benefit local fundraising efforts. Triangle Pop-Up venues gain free top-notch social media advertising, not to mention highly elevated business traffic on POP-UP Market Days.

Once again Front Porch Realty has taken an in depth look at our local housing market. See our snapshot HERE. According to our Triangle MLS data, housing inventory is up 5-10% from Q1 which is great to see, however most pricing markets in our corner of the Triangle are still showing a very low supply of housing inventory especially in the under $400,000 sales price market.

FRONT PORCH REALTY continues to grow and provide the residents of Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs a LOCAL professional real estate firm to handle their real estate transactions. We love moving our residents into, and across town, and showing off all we have to offer. If you haven’t had a chance to glance at our website, please take a moment, we love showing off how special our towns are!
We are here to help you, your relatives, co-workers, employees, and neighbors.

Stop by one of our offices, send us a message, or give us a call and let us help you get moving too!

Welcome Home to 5241 Linwick Drive, Fuquay-Varina, NC | Marcom Place

MARCOM PLACE is located on the “North” side of Fuquay-Varina and is full of transitional 2000-3000 square foot homes on .5 acre – 1 acre sized lots. This charming neighborhood is one of the most established in Fuquay-Varina and you don’t see homes come up for sale in it very often, better hurry!

“We were first attracted to our home because of the quiet neighborhood and large yard, this has been a great home for my family and my kids have thrived here and made lifetime friends. Marcom Place is an amazing place to live“.

This 3/4 Bedroom open plan has already been tastefully updated for you. Bamboo flooring, new carpet, an updated kitchen, and even a new roof and siding make this home a rare find.

“The open floor plan makes this home a great gathering place for friends and family.”

Sitting just on the edge of the town of Fuquay-Varina, WEST OAKS offers beautiful large, rolling, wooded lots. There are a variety of Custom home styles in West Oaks, mostly built in the 1980’s to the early 2000’s. Most of these lovely homes are 2000 square feet – 3000+ sqft and have 3 or 4 bedrooms situated on lots ranging from 3/4 of an acre to 1.5 acres. Prior to coming on the housing market, the homes are usually tastefully updated with todays features like quartz, granite, and subway tile.

There is a neighborhood pool in the subdivision for your enjoyment and this subdivision is not in the city limits so taxes are “county only”, adding to the neighborhood’s appeal. Located on the “North” side of Fuquay-Varina, West Oaks is a short commute to Raleigh, Cary or RTP.

CLICK HERE for what is currently ACTIVE on the market in WEST OAKS and be sure and let us know if you would like to view any of these homes as well as any other homes available in neighborhoods just like this one.

Front Porch Realty just listed 5117 Wolcott Circle in West Oaks, pictured here, and we put it Under Contract in 48 hours! This is a highly desirable neighborhood so if you are thinking of selling, give us a call or let us know HERE!
