Happy New Year!
As the Owner of Front Porch Realty with 24 years of selling SW Wake county real estate, I take an in depth look at our local real estate market every quarter. You can view our 2019 Year-end Market Update HERE. Volume of homes sold has increased across the board as expected, however we saw a slight shift of new construction homes sold towards a more balanced market. Average sales prices have increased about 4% resulting in our average price per square foot in Wake county $130-$140 for re-sale homes and $140-$150 for new construction homes. We saw little or no change in the average days on market across the board, in our area homes are going under contract in about 30 days or less.
It’s a great time to buy and sell in Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina! If you are thinking about selling “the easy way” to Zillow, Open Door, etc PLEASE talk to us first. These companies typically charge 8-10% commission on top of leaving lots of your equity on the table. There is a reason these investment companies want to buy your home! I promise we will take care of all of the details for you AND it will cost you much less. In addition, if you are out there looking at new construction homes, be sure and utilize our FREE Buyer’s Agency. The on-site agents at the new construction neighborhoods represent the builders and look out for THEIR best interests, not yours. Why not have an agent on your side? Learn more about NC Agency HERE.
We will be hosting the Fuquay Varina Chamber Business After Hours event on February 13th at our Fuquay Varina office, please SAVE the DATE we would love to see you there. The Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce will be honoring our elected officials and presenting the quarterly Excellence in Education award.
If you would like my quarterly market update delivered to your inbox, let me know. In addition, if we can be of any assistance to you with your real estate needs, I am certain you will be extremely satisfied with any of our Front Porch Realty real estate brokers level of professionalism and expertise.
