Small town charm but not alot of stores ,shopping or restaurants to choose from.
It takes us 20 minutes to get there from N. Raleigh.
I am guessing it is 20-30 minutes to Wake Forest.

I personaly think it will see major growth in the near future .

And please note, it's not a neighborhood, it's a town. But as has been said, eventually the sprawl will creep that way, and it will be more and more a "part" of Raleigh.

I like Creedmoor. Still affordable, not a bad commute to/from RTP (30 min. maybe). Country feel and is growing. Can get to it off of I85. There are some great neighborhoods and many are new.

We looked in Creedmoor as well. It would have made an easier commute for dh but we also didn't care for it. I realize its an up/coming area but I think its probably about 10 years behind Clayton, which we really didn't want.

I don't mind the rural feel dotted with the occassional tin roof RUSTED but the Creedmoor area felt a bit "depressed" to us. We felt JC was a prettier area. Sorry to those who chose it as their home...no disrespect intended.

Things change quickly and it may be THE area to get into before prices get back on track (though the development we were looking at was NOT cheap in the least...was actually on the high end of our budget...Anderson I think it was).
