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.

This is not your typical 3 Bedroom plan; there is a formal Dining Room with french doors that is now being used as a Home Office and the 2nd floor boasts 3 Bedrooms PLUS a Bonus/4th Bedroom and Nursery/Office off of the cathedraled Master Bedroom. Lots of room to grow!

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

Offered at $335,000.

Visit this link to see more photos and details of this lovely home.

There will be an OPEN HOUSE Saturday, July 13th, 2019 from 1-4 pm with Front Porch Realty’s own Dave Pinette.

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!

We are already looking at the 1st Quarter of 2019? Where did the year go?

See our 1st Q 2019 market snapshot of our local housing inventory HERE. As we begin this New Year, new listings on market have increased however not enough for our demand. According to our Triangle MLS latest stats, sales in the Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs markets are even more robust than the rest of the Triangle region. Interest rates are staying low keeping our inventory moving quickly. Not surprisingly, this lack of inventory is keeping more home-owners from selling because they have nowhere to go. Thinking of selling your home the “easy way”? Please read my blog on the new “sell your home fast and easy” offers several national companies are now offering local home owners here.

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 YOUR LOCAL real estate professionals! Please LIKE US on Facebook and Instagram if you haven’t already, we just reached a milestone of 1000 Facebook likes this past week!

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

Happy New Year!

Take a look at the 2018 Market Update of our local housing inventory. We saw little or no change in the volume of homes closed in our area of the county as compared to 2017. However, average sales prices were up and average days on market were down. We are still deep in a seller’s market as most markets have less than one month supply for re-sale homes, and a two or three month supply for new construction homes. We expect another robust sales year in 2019, however we may not be seeing a real estate “frenzy” again this year, which in my opinion, is a good thing. Healthy, steady growth will be much more beneficial for all of us.

FRONT PORCH REALTY had some exciting changes in 2018. We unveiled our new logo and launched our new website featuring “Our Towns”. We have also added five new real estate agents to our team and upgraded our Holly Springs location. We Live, Eat, Play and SELL Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs!

We will be hosting the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on February 7th at our Fuquay-Varina office, please SAVE the DATE we would love to see you there. We will be kicking off our 10 year Anniversary year-long celebration!

We are here to help you, your relatives, co-workers, employees, and neighbors. Please consider Front Porch Realty as YOUR LOCAL real estate professionals! Please LIKE us on Facebook if you haven’t already, we are always posting LOTS of local news and happenings around town!
