Fairfield Harbour ranked fourth out of more than 9,000 cities from an economic standpoint but other factors influence a retirement decision.

The retirement rankings are based on government financial sources such as home prices, total households, mean income and social security figures.
GoBankingRates specifically referred to Fairfield’s mean household income of $65,902, its median home listing of $189,900, and property tax rate average of $1,343. Fairfield Harbour ranked fourth out of more than 9,000 cities.
Fairfield Harbour offers financial housing advantages for retirement but other factors influence the decision. An important consideration is what will you do with your time? Where can you live with financial security and get the lifestyle you want?
According to Ann Simpson, Fairfield Harbour POA president, the community scores high on amenities and lifestyle as well.
“This is one of the best places in the country to retire,” she said. “We have waterfront and golf and activities for people of all ages.” Currently Fairfield has about 1,700 homes. Although it started as a retirement community and timeshare property, younger families are moving in to take advantage of the amenities for their family, Simpson said.
Fairfield Harbour is a vibrant and thriving community, offering an active lifestyle where neighbors are close knit friends and natural beauty abounds. Fairfield offers more than 25 active clubs, three marinas and a Billy Casper managed golf course. Just over the Neuse River is New Bern, NC, a vibrant city with culture, music, arts and history.
