hi!

I am trying to get as much updated info regarding Fairfield Harbour, nc. We are a retired couple and are
looking to live in a nice affordable water community .

Do any HOA issues exist?
Why are so many homes for sale?

Any info would be most helpful.

Thank you

Perhaps the greatest understatement in the history of the internet. There are more suits out there than at Brooks Brothers.

Run Forrest, run!

Default Please check again

Lawsuits in FH were instigated by less than 2% of our terrific community, and both have been dismissed by the courts in favor of the community -- one group of litigants has paid the court costs; the second group is awaiting judgment on whether they, too, must pay restitution. So, time to update, thank you.

Every community has a few unhappy members. The focus should be on the 98%, instead, don't you think?

"Happy" has numerous factual errors in her posting above.

Suggest a read of the current "New Bern -- Fairfield Harbour" thread for more info on the subject.

A couple of thoughts on this from a long time property owner in Fairfield Habour: 1) the rec center is well managed by the time share management companies; 2) the HP Golf Course is managed well by Billy Caspar Golf; 3) the on site restaurant is owned/operated by competent people. When the Mid South bankruptcy settles out, the Shoreline golf course will go to "green way", (my opinion, here), and the whole of FH will end up just fine, after a long, hard journey.
We might just end up as a case study on how to work things out after the developer leaves a mess (ala Fairfield Communities in the '80s). And amid this unfolding of events, this is one fantastic place to live: the caring of the people, the clubs to promote camaraderie...I guess 47 years of history will do that! It is one of a kind...

I am not personally involved in FH but know a few residents and have read a fair amount about it. My outsiders perspective is that indeed FH has some issues including poor management in the past, a few disgruntled residents, all compounded by the recent recession.

However .....

Having looked at a lot of property in NC, I do believe that if a buyer has a bit of common sense, FH is probably the most favorably priced water front community in NC. Some one that invests wisely now can not only get a nice place to live but will be making a wise investment for the future.

The only thing I learned of note in grad school is "that you either eat well or you sleep well.

The post above is a classic case of that phenomenon. Good Luck and may the FORCE be with you!
