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!

As we approach the New Year it is a great time to buy a new home. If sellers are listed at this time of year, you know they need to sell and there’s sure to be less competition when making offers.

Would you like to do a Rent vs. Own Comparison? Need to get Prequalified? Wondering what the current rates are? Interested in Prepayment Savings? All this can be discovered on my webpage, click here.

If you prefer to meet face to face contact me at 919-762-3502 and we can set up an appointment today.

I highly recommend hiring a realtor to help you. The seller typically pays the realtor and they work for you, helping you negotiate the contract and find the perfect home.

Happy House Hunting!
