Welcome to Fuquay Varina

Hidden suburban community with charm
Fuquay Varina is a town in Wake County located just outside of Raleigh, and it’s the perfect place to call home. The downtown area is home to several restaurants, shops, and more. It offers a short commute to the city and neighboring towns for working professionals. The quaint town of Fuquay Varina makes an ideal escape from busy everyday life. 
The name “Fuquay Varina” comes from the merging of two towns in 1963. Several businesses capitalized on the stellar railroad connection, which created a spike in population. Since then, the town has continued to grow and evolve while still managing to maintain its small-town charm.  
The homes in Fuquay Varina maintain the town's history and charm. However, population and economic growth have led to new home constructions, and subdivisions are beginning to pop up. The median price of a single-family home in this area is slightly under $300,000, making this an affordable place to live that’s less expensive than surrounding areas.
