Hello all! For those is the Northeastern part of Wake County especially, what are your thought on all the growth in Rolesville? There are so many beautiful homes there, a Publix coming and so many new businesses.

Rolesville has been exploding with residential growth for the past 7-8 years. There are a lot of nice communiites up there and you are starting to see commerical development to meet the growing demand. The one thing I keep in mind when driving around up there is that it woudl be a great place to live if I worked from home, but I wouldn't want to be commuting to downtown Raleigh or RTP from there.... but that is just my personal preference.

In general there are a lot of nice places to live up in Wake Fores, Rolesville and parts of neighboring Granville County. But commute is always such an important factor for me when looking at those areas because they will just continue to grow in the decades ahead and the drive can already be a bit challenging depending on where you work.

I agree. The Wake Forest, Rolesville, Youngsville areas are taking off. However, commutes to downtown Raleigh, Durham and RTP can be a bit difficult from these towns. Serious upgrades are needed on the NC 98 corridor as well as Capital Boulevard.

I thought that they're doing that to Capital Blvd?

We looked in Rolesville quite a bit before we bought in Heritage; specifically Averette Ridge, Cedar Lakes, Granite Falls. I wanted a bigger house (because sq footage is sq footage) and there were places in Cedar Lakes they were selling for a song, given the size of them; ~3800 sq feet and they were asking under 400 at the time.

Build quality seemed to be lower in what we looked at compared to the house we bought in Heritage (Dickerson built), so I don't know if those places were more national/tract builders or what.

Keep in mind this was ~5 years ago.
