Mon, Aug 07, 2017 @ 08:08 AM Danielle Keech Renting/Buying a Home

You have a variety of places to live when stationed at MCAS Cherry Point, NC. Located on the Neuse River in North Carolina, you can find homes next to the ocean, the base, or inland in New Bern.

New Bern is most like the suburban life you may already know, with your chain stores and restaurants along with the option to live in a comfortable neighborhood or have some space on a little plot of land.

What sets living in New Bern apart from living near the beach is the price tag on the house you want. Just as you’ll find near any coastal city, the further you get from the ocean, the more house you get for your money.

So if the beach life isn’t a high priority to you, but having a little space from base is, then New Bern is your best option. Let's take a tour of three New Bern homes for sale under $300,000.
