The word about the Active Retirement Community Del Webb is spreading across the Nation, even right here in our own town, Fuquay-Varina, NC! Recently we have had TWO couples contact us at Front Porch Realty interested in our new Del Webb community! Here are what our Buyers had to say about having a LOCAL Buyers Agent help them find their perfect home -
"When we decided to purchase a home at Del Webb Carolina gardens we knew we needed to find a Local Agent to help us. We live out of state. We had never been to that part of North Carolina.  Factors in our search were finding an established firm with local history and a physical office. We didn’t want an agent who dabbled in real estate. We found Front Porch Realty and phoned Laura. She was knowledgeable, friendly and reassuring. Laura was familiar with Del Webb. She established contact and took time to video chat with us. Laura showed us several lots, even in the rain!  With her help we chose our lot and secured our contract. Laura made a challenging situation easy. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Front Porch Realty and Laura."
- Joanne and John, moving from Florida

"When my wife and I was looking into purchasing a new home at Carolina Garden, we debated whether we should hired a local agent to represent us at first.  After some research, we decided that it’s in our best interest to have a local agent to represent us.  The reason is simple, even with the advance of video calls and conferencing, having someone that can be on site for you locally to check on things or ask questions is IMHO, priceless.
The reason we picked Front Porch to represent us is as follow.  First, they are local to the town of Fuquay-Varina, and know the area well.  After some research and email correspondent, we finally had a chance to meet Ms. Laura Moody in person.  Our first impression of Ms. Moody is she is kind, warm and knowledgeable, and both my wife and I knew we picked the right person to represent us.
Now, why it is important to have a local agent to represent you at Del Webb?  Sure, you can do it without a buyer’s agent.  But, Del Webb is paying for it, so essentially it’s a free service to you.  What is important is this, you have someone locally to represent you.  During our purchase process.  Laura has been able to make inquiries and couple of times even drove down to Del Webb herself to have a look.  Not something that you can accomplish with a video call without an agent." -David and Cindy from New York
There is a reason Del Webb Retirement Communities are becoming so popular. Their amenities are unbeatable. From resort-style amenities to multiple 55+ Adult Community activities you'll be making new friends and staying active all year-long! Front Porch Realty has been able to keep a watch on the building process for our buyer, we regularly sends photos and videos to them! We have also had the pleasure of helping them with their design center choices and decisions. Soon we will be doing their walk-thrus and pre-drywall inspections, these are a MUST in new construction. Making a cross country, or even across the state move is stressful enough, the LOCAL experts at FRONT PORCH REALTY KNOW our LOCAL real estate market. To make matters even less stressful for you, they even have every contact you may need to make your Pre and Post move easier.

Fuquay-Varina (FeW-kWAY VAh-Ree-NUh)


Although growing, and we mean growing FAST, Fuquay-Varina still maintains it's small-town atmosphere. Supporting local is a key factor to this along with the outstanding community Fuquay-Varina holds. With events held all over our town throughout all seasons, to local companies that are known world-wide, Fuquay-Varina has it all. Fuquay-Varina locals shop, drink, and eat local and there is a good reason for that. We have some of the best breweries around, delicious food found on every street in both Districts, and activities for all ages, young and old! Aviator Brewery, well-known all over in Grocery Stores and Gas Stations originated in Fuquay-Varina and is a hit for locals and visitors! Take a ride on the Brewquay Prowler to explore the multiple breweries Fuquay offers with a group of friends! Stop into our favorite dive-bar for a delicious custom drink and if you're lucky, a yummy bite to eat if you see that neon burger sign lit up at The Brick! Anywhere you venture to in Fuquay-Varina, you are sure to find a smiling face!

Let's take a peek inside the local housing market in Fuquay-Varina, Raleigh, and all surrounding areas in the Triangle. You may notice housing inventory is at an all time low right now. Front Porch Realty has seen both sides of the market including the good and the bad and the ugly. With the housing market as crazy as it is lately, we find ourselves writing fantastic offers to buyers that do not make the winning bid along and on top of that some of our listings are selling without the buyer having one showing! With advertisements for so many services popping up every other website I am sure you have come across the "online, easy way to sell your home" ads, maybe even before you came to this blog post. Sure, it may sound amazing to not have to prep your home to be sold and you may be surprised with how much equity you may have. The one thing we can assure you of - listing your home with a local real estate agent and letting your home go on the open market will net even more equity than online. There are quite a few catches to these online real estate companies you may not even be aware of including charging upwards of 10% commission on top all kinds of hidden fees. Think of it like this, they are making their money on the front end then will go turn around and immediately sell your house for more. Please talk to your local Real Estate Agent, you will be surprised to find there is not much prep to be done to sell your home! Heck, most homes are selling "as is" without the buyer even seeing the home in person! Your local real estate professional will have a much better insight on your local market versus an online company that most likely is out of state and has zero clue of the local housing market in your area. At the end of the day, there will be hidden fees, service charges, inspections fees, that could cost you from 6%-13%...NO THANKS! If you're thinking of selling, now is a fantastic time! FRONT PORCH REALTY Owner and Broker-in-charge, Laura Moody, recently had a chat with one of our FRONT PORCH REALTY agents, Melissa Zappia. See what they had to say HERE!
