Happy New Year!
Just when we thought real estate in the Triangle could not surprise us anymore! 2023 brings us a much slower-paced market with months of inventory just beginning to look slightly balanced. Our buyers slowed way down; I believe partly because they were priced right out of the market with the rising interest rates as well as out of an abundance of caution.  Rents are high, but house payments are even higher.  I believe buyers at every life stage took a step back and are cautiously analyzing what is important to them in their household. Despite that, the Triangle is continuing to experience record growth which will continue to bring the buyers to our area. We will continue to see a shortage of re-sale homes as those re-sale owners that have refinanced are choosing not to go anywhere.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. From family gatherings to joyful music to holiday lights, the season is filled with many reasons to smile! To make your hectic holiday season a little easier, we have found four local Fuquay-Varina holiday light shows for you to visit this year totally FREE!
  1. Holland Rd. Lights 409 Holland Rd, Fuquay-Varina, NC, 27526
  2. Mill Ridge Neighborhood 2232 Belvinwood Drive, Fuquay-Varina, NC
  3. Noor Lane Light Show 1129 Noor Lane, Fuquay Varina, NC 27526
  4. South Lakes Neighborhood 810 Lake Artesia Lane, Fuquay Varina, NC

Holland Road Lights is a unique experience. The owners have put together a helpful tips list (which I have included below) to ensure you do not miss out!

Located at the corner of Holland Road and Powell Drive in Fuquay Varina - come visit the light show!! Runs daily from dusk to 10:30.

409 Holland Rd, Fuquay Varina
A few notes for visitors:
1. We have music on a small speaker, as well as broadcasting on FM 90.9. Feel free to pull over and roll your windows down on Holland Rd or Powell Drive and get your car radio blasting!
2. A good driving approach since we have the show in our backyard as well this year is to enter Powell Drive from England Avenue and then make a right on Holland. Please view from outside the picket fence or the end of our driveway - there are wires everywhere inside the fence and it’s a trip hazard. You can view from your car or feel free to get out and dance!
3. We will be having a toy and food drive drive this year to benefit local kids in need of some Christmas cheer, it will be going to a local charity who will distribute to needy kids as well as the local food bank. If you feel led to give, we have a rubbermaid tote at the end of our driveway that you can leave something in. Please make sure the lid is sealed tight so everything stays dry.
4. We have had several people ask about donating to our light show itself. While we do this for the community at no charge, it does take over 40 hours of setup and prep and usually a few hundred dollars of new material every year. Should you wish to donate, our Venmo is @Brent-Deitrich and Cash app is $brengamgee - Its not expected but always appreciated!

We hope you enjoy our light show, and Merry Christmas!

Noor Lights is another unique experience, please follow the link below to start your light show on demand! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

It should be no surprise that our inventory is beginning to grow again, especially in the upper price ranges. Click here to view a snapshot of our local housing market. I have expanded our Fuquay-Varina, Harnett County sales price bands so we can get a better idea of what is happening in that area by price. Now that the supply of homes is increasing, our MLS “Coming Soon” status has virtually gone away, MLS changed reporting for Coming Soon homes to begin DOM count just like Active. New construction inventory has increased as the builders are “catching up” and finishing homes, there are lots of big incentives out there to entice a Buyer to purchase. We as a local office are still seeing plenty of buyers, however they are not “ready to buy” buyers, they are being extremely cautious, and patient, while they watch the interest rates and price drops. FRONT PORCH REALTY offers the residents of Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs a LOCAL professional real estate firm to manage their real estate transactions. We love moving our residents into, and across town, and showing off all our towns have to offer. We are here to help you, your relatives, co-workers, employees, and neighbors. FRONT PORCH REALTY is hyper-focused on our local market, if you have not followed us on social media, please do!

Welcome to 3812 Bostwyck Drive, Fuquay-Varina, NC, 27526

This ALL BRICK custom-built home sits in the perfect North Fuquay-Varina location on a beautiful and private 3/4 acre wooded lot.

We asked our homeowner to let us know what made them choose this home and the Southwyck neighborhood so we wanted to share with you what we learned!

"What first attracted you to your home?"

All brick home, hardwood floors on the first floor, the open floor plan, and a beautiful wooded lot that backs up to a creek. Inside features hardwood floors on the first floor. The location is unbeatable! Great schools for our kids to attend and outside of City limits!

Any memories in your home that you would like to share with your buyer?

Sitting in the sunroom or on the screened porch, watching the beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed watching the kids play in the backyard and the creek!

What would you consider your homes best selling feature?

The house is all brick and sits on a wooded lot, even more so the houses do not sit on top of each other in this neighborhood. Great location to easily get to Downtown Fuquay or to Raleigh!

Anything about the location or neighborhood of your home you would like to share?

Once 540 is finished, the home will be very close to access the outer loop! Being on the North side of town is easy access to Raleigh and RTP!
Contact FRONT PORCH REALTY for your private showing TODAY!
