As we wrap up the first quarter of 2023, the Wake County real estate market is still going strong. Home prices have continued to rise, with the average sales price now at $454,990 - an increase of 3.4% compared to this time last year. Despite the price increases, there's still plenty of interest from buyers, and new listings are hitting the market all the time.

Sometimes we confuse excitement for begin scary. Whether its running a first race, creating a business, starting a new career, beginning a diet, giving up a habit that doesn't or no longer serves you or committing to another with the words, "I do."

In January 2022 we ordered 2 sets of iron French doors for our bathroom—to replace these frosted wood doors. Monday we said goodbye to these doors.
