Good morning Meredith,
I would love to help you find foreclosures and REO's in the New Bern area. I actually work with plenty of people who are full-time investors and into flipping homes and also people who may be in the same situation as you where they are looking to find an inexpensive foreclosure. If you wouldn't mind emailing me and letting me know what price range and criteria you are looking for I can get on top of that right away. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing back from you!
