Considering homes for sale in Clayton?
Clayton is recognized as a top place to live in our area boasting an outstanding value in housing as compared to other parts of the Raleigh market as well as a strong reputation for their schools. Something I really like about Clayton is that it's not just a suburb of resident commuting to Raleigh, it has its own economy with a number of larger companies based in and around the community.
However, keep traffic and location in mind if you will be commuting to and from Raleigh, Cary or RTP. Clayton is very spread out and can present challenges to commuters. You can come out a winner if you plan your commute just right. You can commute to North Raleigh from Clayton
The downtown section of Clayton is popular boasting a small town atmosphere with local businesses, a few restaurants and a small, outdoor farmer's market at one end. Monster Batting Cageson Main Street in is a popular indoor batting facility and shop for local baseball and softball players. Events like the Clayton Shindig;featuring a day of live music, BBQ and beer draw people from all over the area! There is also an annual Halloween parade and Christmas parade.
