There many nice old historic homes on the waterfront and a couple new retirement communities. The newest is on a golf course with homes starting in the $200's
All of "greater New Bern" is popular with retirees for many quality of life issues: accessibility to good health care, a strong cultural life--especially theater, a local community college for continuing education opportunities, temperate weather. The area is especially popular with boaters and we have four different yacht clubs. Though we have no communities specifically for retirees we have subdivisions, gated communities and neighborhoods that are quite appealing to folks 50+. I'd be more than happy to answer any specific questions you might have....and to show you around! Lee Ann Fordyce, RE/MAX By The Water.
Great Question! As Anna mentioned a lot would really depend on what interests and activities you have or would like to have for amenities upon retirement! We do not have any 50 or older subdivisions which is not what you meant I don't think but still is a common question we get a lot because there are over 50 subdivisions in different towns! I would love to get some information from you in regards to what areas you have already researched or shown interest in. You can reach me anytime on my cell at 252-571-9089 or email at email@example.com whichever is easier and more convenient for you. I have access to the entire Craven County MLS so I would easily be able to give you a list of different subdivisions and exactly what each one offers for their residents! I would love to help in anyway I can and look forward to hearing back from you!
