This stunning 1.5 story house sits right at the entrance of a culdesac in the neighborhood of Fern Valley. The home is a great place for entertaining. Enjoy an amazing double sided fireplace whether relaxing on a screened in porch or lounging in your living room.

We love the idea of being able to sit outside in the chilly weather and enjoy the warmth of the fireplace. Its an amazing place to enjoy all the seasons throughout the year so why not start now! When you walk outside the lot has a wonderful greenery. You will be able to host special occasions inside or outside of the home. People will fall in love with this house as much as you do.

The deck was updated earlier this week and we are loving it!

The neighborhood is only a few minutes away from restaurants and retail shopping areas. We always recommend stopping by Downtown Fuquay-Varina and try out Aviator Smokehouse or Vicious Fishes. They have great food and beer! After a good meal you can walk down and check out the local boutiques that we can’t help but adore.

Offered at $375,000

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.

We have seen the pandemic affect our local housing market, however it may not be in the way you would have expected; “ready” and motivated buyers have been abundant these last few months. According to our latest Triangle MLS statistics, the Triangle area housing inventory was down an average of 30% April 2020 from April 2019. Our inventory began to slightly improve by June but was still down 20% compared to one year ago. Interest rates remain at record lows and some new construction has fallen behind schedule due to Covid and an unusually wet spring. This has caused our market to remain deep in a seller’s market with multiple offer situations and sales prices ending up way above list prices, especially in the lower price points. Our southwest end of the county saw an increase of units sold Q2 2020 across the board compared to Q2 of 2019. Our inventory remains super low at about one month’s supply, or less, across all areas and all price points.

See the 2nd Q 2020 market snapshot of the local housing inventory HERE. If you were thinking of selling your home this year but wanted to wait until the immediate threats of Coronavirus are over, the new COMING SOON status would be a perfect fit for you. Read more HERE to find out how COMING SOON can get your home “on the market” safely.

In this un-precedented, sad, and anxious time we wanted to continue our “normal” quarterly look at real estate statistics for OUR TOWNS. The first quarter of 2020 began with a bang as expected and was essentially un-touched by the Coronovirus pandemic. Sales were up from Q1 2019 across the board, Days on Market were down, sales prices showed an average of 6% increase. We are still experiencing a shortage of homes to sell in our area even with the many new home neighborhoods that are popping up all over.

With real estate deemed as an “essential business” our Front Porch Realty agents have continued listing and selling real estate, using all precautions of course. There are still many buyers needing a place to live and we have even seen some sellers take advantage of the awesome low interest rates and “move up” to now more affordable larger homes. We will continue our quarterly Market Update throughout the year, only time will tell how Southern Wake county will be able to recover from this devastating pandemic on our local business’ and community.

See the 1st Q 2020 market snapshot of the local housing inventory HERE. If you were thinking of selling your home this year but wanted to wait until the immediate threats of Coronavirus are over, the new COMING SOON status would be a perfect fit for you.
