Aeisha D, go to 1234 Market street.
You have to have at least 5 addresses of Properties that you are interested in.
You will submit an application. They will scrub the list to see if the properties city owned or if the owners are still paying taxes on them. I hope that this helps

Hi Ms. Aeisha,

How are you? Thank you for your inquiry. If I am not mistaken, are you talking about where can you buy the "dollar house" inventory after 6 months of HUD property being listed for 6 months and then taken off the market to sell it at a "$1" value?

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at Phong.Lam@c21ag.com or call me at (267) 918-1880.

Thank you for your time and I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon! Have a great day!

Hope that helps!

Mr Phong D. Lam,
You spoke about ; where a person can you buy a "dollar house" inventory after 6 months of HUD property being listed for 6 months and then taken off the market to sell it at a "$1" value? Can I contact YOU to find out more information concerning this; and is it possible to you use the 203 ( K ) program to fix's up the property and purchase the property ? For a LIVE-IN Owner Occupied Rental Property !

I am not sure of context of your question. Perhaps you are referring to an observation in the 'Public Record', when a One Dollar amount is indicated. The 'One Dollar' sale price indicated in the Public Record acknowledges a 'transfer of title' to a family member, not a typical purchase price of the property. Since the amount is only 'One Dollar' the 4% transfer tax is held to a nominal value.

while closing costs, back taxes etc need to get paid, you can also look into sheriff sales
