Here is our 2nd Q 2018 snapshot of our local housing inventory. It’s no secret, we still don’t have enough houses to sell. According to our local Triangle MLS, housing inventory in the Triangle is down 3% from 2nd Q of 2017. Most markets in our end of Wake county are showing less than a 1 month supply. It’s a great time to make a move!

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 to show off all we have to offer.

We are here to help you, your relatives, co-workers, employees, and neighbors. Please consider Front Porch Realty as YOUR LOCAL real estate professionals!

The charm of this all brick 4 bedroom CUSTOM home will grab you the minute you walk in the front door. The front porch and sprawling, private, yard welcome you into this impeccably maintained home. Extensive crown and chair moldings, “real” masonry fireplace with gas logs, along with the owner’s custom upgrades truly can’t be matched. 2 bedrooms down and 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor for all kinds of living possibilities. There is also plenty of dormer and walk-in attic space. The architectural designed screened-in porch provides the perfect relaxation or entertaining space. The .95 acre lot is private and expands into the wooded area, complete with fire pit. Over sized shed conveys for extra storage. The side-entry 2 car garage has a painted floor and built-in work bench and peg board. This one is a gem!

This 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath all brick beauty is the perfect place to raise a family, just ask the owner! “Our teenagers each had their own private bathrooms which made getting ready for school in the morning much easier, if that’s even possible. Our previous home had only one bathroom on the second floor which they had to share and it was a nightmare!”.

The open floor plan, soaring ceilings, wall of windows and floor to ceiling stone fireplace add to the beauty and custom elegance this home has to offer. A breeze to entertain with a flowing open plan, yet each room is specifically bordered. The large sun room and “wine” rooms flow open to a sprawling brick patio complete with a “mini kitchen” and chiminea for late night roasting marshmallows. The owners have comfortably served as many as 30 guests with room for more!

The third floor was “perfect for our son’s ‘home away from home’ while he was a freshman at NC State, he had decided to live at home and with having his own bathroom, access to the Bonus room, and a dorm-sized refrigerator he could survive sight unseen for a few days”.

This lovely home sits on a half acre cul-de-sac lot and according to the owner “the long driveway and parking pad made life so much easier for 4 drivers and 3 cars…no need to move cars when someone wanted to go somewhere”.

A 3rd detached garage was added to the home and has seen all kinds of uses. It made a perfect “man-cave” that once housed a flat-screened television and a small refrigerator. “A perfect place to ‘escape’ to, roll out the grill to the patio and watch a game with my puppy”, says the man of the house. This garage also served as a 16th birthday party one year, complete with karaoke machine, the patio made a perfect stage!

With their children grown, the owners decided it was time to downsize and have moved to their new home. They miss the neighbors and the home from which they have so many fond memories and wish nothing more to see a new family move in and enjoy all that this home and neighborhood has to offer!
