Living in Fuquay-Varina we are blessed with abundant sunshine, making solar panels an enticing option for many homeowners. But before you jump on the solar bandwagon, it's important to weigh the benefits and risks.

Shining Benefits:

  • Environmental benefits: Solar energy is a clean and renewable resource, reducing your carbon output and contributing to a greener future.
  • Financial Freedom: Over time, generating your own electricity can significantly reduce your dependence on the grid, potentially leading to substantial savings.
  • Government Incentives: The federal solar tax credit currently stands at 30%, significantly reducing the upfront cost of installation. North Carolina also offers various incentives like property tax exemptions and rebates. To learn more about these incentives, CLICK HERE!
  • Boost Your Home's Value: Studies suggest homes with solar panels can sell faster and for a higher price.
  • Low Maintenance: Modern solar panels require minimal upkeep, just occasional cleaning to maintain efficiency.

Shadows to Consider:

  • Upfront Investment: The initial cost of purchasing and installing a solar panel system can be significant.
  • Sun's Schedule: Solar panels rely on sunshine, so they're less effective on cloudy days and don't generate power at night. Battery storage systems can help mitigate this, but add extra expense.
  • Not a Perfect Fit: Not all roofs are suitable for solar panels. Factors like size, angle, and shading from trees can impact efficiency.
  • Location, Location, Location: Places with consistent sunshine see greater benefits from solar panels.
  • Moving On Up? The benefits of solar panels might not transfer fully to the next homeowner, potentially affecting your return on investment if you plan to move soon.

The Verdict: Sunny with a Few Clouds

If you're intrigued by the possibility of solar power, Fuquay-Varina offers excellent sunshine and several reputable solar installers. Research different systems, consult with a local solar professional, and obtain multiple quotes to determine your best course of action. Remember, a well-informed decision paves the way for a brighter future, both financially and environmentally!

Here is a quick look of our Southern Wake and Harnett counties 2023 Year-end Market Update!
2023 brought us a much slower-paced market with months of inventory just beginning to look slightly balanced. Buyers were priced out of the market with the rising interest rates, and sales prices holding steady. Rents are high, but house payments are even higher. Our end of the Triangle in Southwest Wake and into Harnett County is continuing to experience business and retail growth which will continue to bring buyers to our area. Supply of resale homes will continue to be low as those resale owners that have refinanced in recent years are choosing not to go anywhere.
Front Porch Realty has opened our Property Management division, Front Porch Rentals, for residential and multi-family units. Front Porch Rentals is thriving, please keep us in mind for yourself or those investors you know!
In summary, we saw a decrease in units SOLD across the board except New Construction in Harnett County. Price / square foot increased slightly from 2022 and we saw Average Sales price decrease for New Construction and increase for Re-sale homes.
Let Front Porch Realty be your “go to” for all of your LOCAL real estate needs, rest assured you will be extremely satisfied with our level of professionalism and expertise.
