You will need to get pre-approved and have a $1,000 money order to place a bid. http://www.HUDhomeStore.com is the best place to research homes. HUD lists their homes there. If the home has an escrow, there is work required to be done. There is currently a $100 down program for owner occupants who are buying HUD homes. If you want to limit the amount of money you bring to the closing, ask for 3% in closing costs and calculate your maximum offer as follows: as-is appraised value minus any required repairs minus the 1.75% up front mortgage insurance funding fee.

And find an experienced HUD registered broker to guide you through the process.
