Hello

I've heard that it is very nice. Hubby and I are looking out that way for houses and the market seems reasonable. Search the threads and you will find prior posts about Zebulon.

Zebulon is going to be on the edge of a lot of growth and development planned for eastern Wake County over the next 5 to 10 years. There's a Super Wal-Mart going in on the east edge of town by Five County Stadium, and supposedly there is planned development in the same area for about 1000 homes or so. It won't be as explosive as what's expected to happen in Knightdale and Wendell, but it's expected to be a growing area, nonetheless.

That info actually comes from people I work with who are longtime Zebulon residents ("Zebulonian", as my boss like to refer to himself... lol). I'm not really sure where to point you as far as information on future development and things of local interest. I've only really gotten to know a few things about the area since I started working in Wendell a couple of months ago, but I can ask around when I get a chance. What area or neighborhood are you specifically interested in? There's a lot of realtors here who monitor discussion on this board, a couple of them might be of some help as well.

I have yet to travel out to Zebulon, but plan on it this weekend to look at a few houses. I'm not sure, but from what I can tell from the town web site it looks very small. With the growth in Raleigh it looks like a good place to buy a house or build. Home Gain has some houses from the Zebulon area, including some new ones. We have visited friends in Middlesex (8 miles to the east of Zebulon) and it is pure country. Most of these little towns don't have much in the way of local shopping, but with Raleigh that close it would not be a problem for a little piece of heaven.

Zebulon is poised to see some growth, but I don't think it's going to be at the same rate expected to happen in Knightdale and Wendell. Zebulon is definitely within commuting distance of Raleigh, but it's still a good 25-30 minutes to downtown via the new 64 Bypass. Most of the major retail development has been centered around Knightdale for eastern Wake County so far. I'm willing to guess that if you are seeking an area with a small town pace that's not going to change too dramatically in the next 10 years, Zebulon wouldn't be a bad choice.

I don't know what sort of info there is about Zebulon on the web, everything I've heard so far has been word of mouth here... the Eastern Wake News is a weekly news publication that probably does the best job on keeping up on current events in the area though. www.easternwakenews.com

I have lived in Zebulon since 1992 and there is a lot of growth expected here, which is am so glad! Rumor has it that within 5 yrs., Zebulon will be the size of Wake Forest. I have heard that Cracker Barrel, Kohl's shopping center, Golden Corral and Wendy's were coming and more. There are several new banks going up right now. It is suppose to boom around here.

It gets very old to have to drive to Raleigh or Wilson to go to a super walmart or basically any other stores other than the few that we have here. Especially with the price of gas right now.

Zebulon is rural, but the new 64 bypass is making Zebulon more appealing. I have been in several new homes that have been built and you get so much for your $$. Acre lot, all brick, custom built, etc.

A good friend of mine has property near Billy Hopkins Rd and is telling me there is a site being looked at for a new school. She has been approached to sell her acreage to developers on many occasions, because of its location to the possible new school. So it appears it is getting ready to expand like so many other areas are in Wake County.
