I have noticed that there are quite a few properties for sale in the Riverbend Community in New Bern. I was curious as to why there seem to be so many for sale? Thanks for any information you could give me. I am looking to possibly apply for a job in either Williamston or Oriental. Any comments or suggestions??

Nothing wrong with Riverbend. At our first Newcomer's Club (they have a Welcome Wagon that finds you when you move here and encourages you to join Newcomers) meeting last week, there were a lot of new folks in town who moved to Riverbend. Seems to be a very popular area. Riverbend is a trek to Oriental, though, even if you take the Ferry from Havelock area.

Default River Bend

I live in River Bend. It has a large number of moderate price range houses that were built in the late 60's that are either starter homes or homes of the first wave of retirees that arf in many instances going away now.

It also has newer construction and very nice homes along the waterfront.

Retirees die. Before they do, they often go to nursing homes, which want money up front- sell house. Also though- the entire area has been in a boom for twenty five years constantly- while the rest of the USA has had a roller coaster (ups,downs,ups, down) we have been steady boom. Folks buy, value increases,they sell and buy up....sell and buy up. Sell....

Thank you for the information..I am currently living in Baltimore and sometimes a lot of houses for sale in a certain neighborhood is consistent with a changing neighborhood (that isn't always for the best).

Nah, thats not the case with Riverbend. Riverbend is an older neighborhood as someone else mentioned. But most of the people who live in River Bend are older people....

River Bend probably has zero crime. It is located along the Trent River on the south side New Bern down 17. There are plenty of transplants living there, there are some younger families as well. One of my best friends as a child lived in River Bend.

Not a bad neighborhood at all....just an older one.
