I am a widow (50), living in Ga. right now, looking for possible move for now and retirement. I still need to work, ultrasound/mammo tech. Would LOVE to be near the beach. North Carolina sounds very tempting. What are housing prices really like for a new 3 bd, 2 bath house? Any advise where to look for more info, or ideas would love to hear.

You can find a home with those specifications for just under $200K within about 7 miles of the beaches at Emerald Isle

There are hospitals in Morehead City (25 minutes), Jacksonville (35 minutes) and New Bern (45 minutes).

Eastern Carolina Emergency Internal Medicine (ECIM (broken link)) also has five facilities in the general area.

Carteret County's profile is at this link.

It is an area of small towns where people are general more interested in walking the beaches, local festivals, fishing, boating, or enjoying the fresh seafood than night life.

You can find more info at my Emerald Isle Travel Guide or my main website.

I would be glad to answer any area questions or share my NC beach knowledge with you.

The picture below was taken from the Cameron Langston Bridge which connects Cedar Point & Cape Carteret with Emerald Isle. The sun had just gone down. The area is stunningly beautiful. Lots of pictures at this link.



This was taken less than five minutes later at marsh along Route 58. Both are part of the seven miles to the beach so the drive isn't too hard to take most days.

There are a tremendous number of rental properties on the coast. You can choose from month to month to annual.

A Google search for "Crystal Coast Rentals" will get you lots of names or feel free to send me a note, and I'll point you in the right direction.

If you want to be near the coast and close to the beaches and hospitals, in the southern area, you would pick either the Crystal Coast with New Bern, Morehead City and Jacksonville having hospitals or head for Wilmington which is a much bigger area.

Nags Head also has a hospital but I know nothing about it.

While the online version of the Carteret County News isn't very robust, it does carry the complete classifieds.

The Jacksonville paper has a better online presence.

New Bern's paper also has a good online version.

Good luck finding the info that you need.

Lisasbe,I recently moved to New Bern and had a job lined up when I got here. I am impressed with the availability of healthcare here, so you should have no trouble finding a job. Your best bet is to go directly to the hospital website. There are jobs posted on other forums, but only a few select... I believe the hospital in Jacksonville area is called Onslow Memorial. New Bern is Craven Regional Medical Center. Not sure about Morehead, but google Morehead City and you can find it on one of the informational websites.

This is the link to the Craven Regional Medical Center

The one in Morehead City is Carteret General Hospital.

Lastly this is the link for Onslow Memorial in Jacksonville.

THanks silty1, and lisabe. I haven't looked into hospitals for jobs yet, still trying to get a feel for the area before I take some time to actually go there and look around. Good luck with your search!

Default Question?

I am looking to move to a warmer climate but I would like to invest as little money as possible where ever I move in case I don't like it. I would rent but my problem is I have a BIG family. My daughter who is 11 YO, myself and 5 beautiful cats!!! Plus Buddy our ****zu.

How can I move to NC with my whole family? Would a condo allow this many pets? If yes, can they go outside? I don't know if this is a dumb question but I am worried to sell my house here and move to NC buy a 300K house and not like it and have to sit with all my money tied up there. I would like to keep my house here in MA till I know I want to stay down south.

Any suggestions would be appreciated and please don't suggest finding homes for my pet because they are family! Thank you ....
