Cary, NC, You can Find Granite Countertops in Affordable Homes

By

Granite Countertops at one time were reserved for luxury homes, but more recently have been found in homes across the entire pricing spectrum.  A few years ago, I told a colleague that granite would become an expectation in entry-level homes in Cary very soon.  And I was met with disbelief.

But, today, we see that granite is for everyone.  We see granite kitchen counters as standard features in $150,000 affordable townhomes, and in some Cary resale homes in the low $100,000's.

And the designers have tried to convince us for several years now that granite is old news.  That we need to think of other materials as HOT counter material.  Concrete, Glass, quartz, and Stainless Steel have all been offered and mostly dismissed.  I see some wood counters from time to time.

But, granite retains its popularity in the Cary area, and is still the most desired material.

So, if Home Buyers want Granite, I figure I may as well help them find it, and I created a custom search for Granite Countertops in affordable homes in Cary, NC.  I defined Affordable Homes as under $250,000, and the initial search delivered 61 listings.
I thik Granite is here to stay.

Wow, Mike, I'm impressed. We have no way to search for granite counter tops in our MLS.

Maria and Ashley,

We have a very wide selection of searchable fields in Triangle MLS, and many that are underutilized.  Agents usually find a way to mark Granite, even if it is tiles, or only covers a portion of the kitchen.

Hi, Eleanor,

Thanks!

You have to hope that folks put a few other features above granite, but this lets them see homes with granite.

Steve,

Of course, there is a wide variety in granite, finishes, and appearance, too.
