Ever wonder what a half million dollars can buy you in New Bern?
A tranquil waterfront home, for starters.
New Bern’s real estate market has been heating up this summer, and home buyers are seeking respite in the form of eastern North Carolina’s pristine waterfront communities and recreation.
From the historic, small-town charm of downtown New Bern to the elegant riverfront estates along Trent Woods, Neuse Harbour, and Brice’s Creek areas, water has been a common theme among buyers’ top requested amenities.
In fact, during the month of July, the top five most expensive residential real estate sales in Craven County featured property in and along these areas.
