One of Zebulon’s most popular destinations is just 6 minutes from this property at Five County Stadium, home to the minor league baseball team the Carolina Mudcats. This stadium provides entertainment year-round with special events, games and activities for all ages. Nature lovers will enjoy Buckhorn Reservoir to the southeast, which offers miles of trails and lakeside activities such as fishing, boating, kayaking and birdwatching. Additionally, Zebulon is home to some major retail stores like Walmart, and over a dozen fast food restaurants.  If you’re looking for big city action though, downtown Raleigh is only a half hour away and offers world class dining and shopping, and elite college sports like the North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke Blue Devils. Falls Lake, just north of downtown, is one of the state’s premier recreational hotspots.

Call or text Scott directly at 314.639.9777 or email at info@acretown.com if you’d like to discuss an offer.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.


WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).

DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
