Fuquay-Varina Market Stats

Fuquay-Varina is a one-of-a-kind town that's just as unique as its name. Originally formed in 1963, this Triangle suburb has quickly morphed into one of the fastest growing communities in the Raleigh area, largely thanks to its affordable homes, A+ schools, and ideal location. And because Fuquay-Varina was once two different towns, residents can enjoy two historic downtown districts!
