In Front Porch Realty’s 25 year history, there has never been a better time to sell your home than in today’s market! We have a low inventory of homes across all price points and an influx of buyers from all over the country. Super hot LOW interest rates are adding to our buyer pool as first time buyers strive to leave their high-priced rentals and apartments. Multiple offers within days, and even hours, way above list prices are fast becoming the “norm” at FRONT PORCH REALTY.
According to our latest Triangle MLS stats, our local inventory is down a whopping 80% from 2020 and our Days on Market is down 68%! Not only is Front Porch Realty selling our listings extremely quickly, we are also accepting offers way over list price with the buyers signing appraisal addendums willing to pay their offer prices regardless of what their lender’s appraised value comes in. Below is a snapshot of February’s 2021 Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs MLS activity, courtesy of our local Triangle MLS.
Thinking about selling this year but not quite ready? Our “COMING SOON” option may be the perfect solution for you! Potential Buyers are able to get a “sneak peak” of your home before you are ACTIVE on the market ensuring a very quick sale with mimimum showing exposure of your home.

Here is a chance to own a little slice of Wake county history and make it your own! Located just right outside of Fuquay-Varina city limits this park-like setting is a rare find.
The owner’s have been told that some rooms of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home date back to pre-Civil War. A long circular drive leads you to this nostalgic farmhouse with over 2000 sqft of history. Wide-plank heart of pine flooring graces the gorgeous Sunroom and can be found in a couple of additional rooms. The home will need your personal updating and possibly structural work too, but imagine the possibilities!
The sprawling grounds have grapevines, pear and pecan trees, brick walk-ways and a beautiful brick patio plus a gazebo. As if this isn’t enough the property has a large “Barn” with room for a woodstove and a masonry fireplace and even a mini-kitchen. The family remembers their father making monthly lunches for the “old Cupboard crew” in the barn; brunswick stew, grilled cheese sandwiches, and pig pickins’.
In addition there is a large packhouse on the property and a vintage smokehouse. This photo shows the old homeplace when there were still dirt roads and all was farmland. The date is unknown.
This photo shows the Homeplace in the 1980’s. My has our city grown!
One of the fondest memories of the family is their customary Sunday before Christmas dinner and decorating the home for Christmas. Mr. Lawrence also provided an annual New Year’s Eve Breakfast for the community!
The Lawrence family was a family of sharing and community love and they would love to share their homeplace with someone that will love it as much as they have.
Front Porch Realty was recently invited to a special webinar presentation by Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, Douglas D. Duncan. Of particular interest to us was Covid-19’s expected impact on our US and of course our local, housing industry.
To our surprise, and great appreciation, we have not seen a disruption of our sales at all from Covid-19 but we can’t help suspect that this huge un-expected disruption of our labor market will eventually trickle down to our housing sales industry and into our local sales activity. There is no doubt there has been in a surge in re-finances in 2020 as more and more homeowner’s have decided to stay in their current homes. Homeowners have had plenty of “home-time” to get all kinds of indoor and outdoor home-improvement projects done. Even if they might have been pondering selling this year, there is fear of where they will go as inventory in all price-points is low. This has added to the cycle of low inventory especially for those baby boomers entering into the home ownership market for the first time.
Good news, according to the Fannie Mae market experts, we should be back to the end of 2019 numbers by the end of 2021, of course we will have lost 2 years of usual growth. Unlike other “recessions”, Covid has hit very specifically. The service and entertainment industries were and continue to be hit hard but other industries have hardly been affected or even actually improved sales. Interest rates are expected to drop even lower in 2021 and most likely stay low for about 5 years. Housing demand will remain way ahead of supply for awhile, prices will continue to go up due to demand and rising building costs.
We want to send a big THANK YOU to one of our trusted local lenders, Shellie King of First Citizens Bank, for this special informative invitation. FRONT PORCH REALTY agents are always ready to help you make a decision about selling and buying a home, we are great listeners and advisers and we will always have your best interests in mind. We can sell all over the Triangle, NC region as well as the greater Wilmington, NC region however we SPECIALIZE in Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Willow Springs, Angier and Lillington.
