New Bern’s Best Real Estate Buy

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

I have been driving all over the New Bern area last week and this week and have seen tons of homes. I came across a home in Trent Woods that has made my buy of the week. The home is 1700 sq-ft. 3 bedroom with 2 bathrooms, large family room, remodeled kitchen from top to bottom, large dining room, 1 car garage, .45 acres, fenced back yard, all new carpet, paint, updated bathrooms with tile floors, sun-room, deck and brick too top it off.

 $175,000 is the asking price and it is a steel of a deal.

Golds Gym in New Bern Nc

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Shake off those negative vibes, turn off that terrible news station and head off to New Bern’s only Gold’s Gym. Located at 3340 Martin Luther King Blvd between Target and the Twin Rivers Mall, Gold’s is easy to access.  

I started going to the gym before there ever was a gym there. Before they constructed Gold’s Gym, the company had a trailer set outside of it so that they could start to sell memberships. All these years later, their membership is growing strong.

Neighborhood Covenants, Protective or Restrictive?

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Taberna HOA Covenants 

When buying a home, one of the most important items on your check list should be covenants. There is a disagreement as to what to call these pages of paperwork. I myself would like to view them as being Protective, where as others see them as impinging on their personal rights as a home owner. These documents are put into place from the conception of the neighborhood. They are to make sure that property values are not harmed by what one indiviual may or may not do with their property.

Before I show some one a neighborhood, I try to ask them a few questions that I know would help them with their decision to buy or not in that area. Here are a few examples of what one might see in a set of covenants.

1. Type of dog: Some communities are restricting the type of dog that can be brought into the community. I know of at least 4 areas between New Bern and Havelock that have this rule. Brices Crossing, Lynwood Heights, Tucker Creek, just to name a few.

2. Fences: There are many areas that do not allow fences to be built. Those that do allow fences have regulations on the material and height of the fence. Most allow vinyl or wood fences of no more than 4 feet in height. There are only a few areas that will allow a chain link fence. If you choose a home on a golf course lot, forget about a fence, most neighborhoods do not allow them to be built.          

3. Campers/Boats: A lot of communities do not allow campers and/or boats to be kept in the driveway.

Here is an example of a Protective covenants: here is a link to Taberna’s Covenants
