Really Great Place to Live - Don't Miss Out!! - 4/6/2007
I am a local Real Estate Broker and Owner of Wray Realty (www.Triangle-NC.com) I grew up in the Bustling Triangle area. I have lived in Raleigh, Garner, Apex, and Now Fuquay Varina.
Fuquay Varina is a great place to live and raise a family. This town is very dedicated to it's residents. It has a rapidly growing housing and retail market. You can get alot for your money here. It is a place for all home buyers. You can find a home that is 100 years old or New Construction. Prices Range from $100K or less to as much as you want to spend. For $350K you can get a good size home (2500-3000 sf) home with Hardwood Floors, Moldings, Granite Kitchen tops, Custom Cabinets, Screen Porches, and tons more. It is hard to find this around the area.
Residents enjoy being close to Raleigh, Cary, and Research Triangle Park with the benefits of Small Town Charm.
The Town has a city base resident count of around 11,000, but the town pulls from about 40,000+ residents in surround towns such as Apex, Holly Springs, Garner, South Raleigh, Angier, Coats, Lillington, Dunn, etc.
Don't miss out on the opportuniy to get in to the town early as Raleigh, Cary, and Apex are starting to spread out to Fuquay-Varina. This town is the next area to boom in Southern Wake County.
10 homes and counting - 5/13/2006
My husband and I moved here two years ago from another state in the south east. We have made many friends here and enjoy the small town feel. We also liked the quality of the homes here for the price. It is more of a "soccer mom" area which is perfect for our family. I like the entire triangle area. Lots to do. It is a melting pot. Fuquay Varina is more affordable than Cary but is a little further drive for the great shopping malls, movie theaters, etc. :). However, it is growing quickly so that could change in the next few years. For $300,000-400,000 you can purchase a new home with granite, hardwoods, stainless steel appliances, the works. There are other homes less than that too, that are nice! The largest downfall would be the overcrowded school system. Wake County is usually ranked in the top five school systems in the US. The county gets 9,000 new students every year and they can not build the schools fast enough. Lots of rezoning and talk of year round schools. That hasn't happened to us yet. No place you live is going to be perfect, that's just not realistic. We have been pleased overall and would move here again.[more...]
