I am not a RE Agent, I'm a professional Inspector, but I hope this helps. There are sites you can go to view homes that are offered through the GNND program. HUD runs the "Good Neighbor Next Door" program and you can search for these homes/areas at their WEB site of:
HUD generally uses what they call "Management And Marketing Contractors" and HUD provides a search for them at: http://hud.uai.com/hudpls/.
For the North Texas area it is Southwest Alliance of Asset Managers and their WEB site is http://www.southwestalliance.com.
There are many Agents/Organizations that also offer additional information and searches for these homes. If you perform a Google search using "Good Neighbor Next Door" & "Texas" you will find a large listing of them. Many of them also provide a search function for these homes.
When you are ready to look, or buy, don't forget to have the home inspected to make sure you know its condition. If you have any questions regarding the inspection please feel free to call or email me. I do provide a walk through type inspection that is much less expensive than a full inspection. Its intention is only to help you decide if you want to make a bid and have a full inspection performed.
Good luck and happy house hunting!
