The following web site is where you can search for HUD homes that are currently available. You will still need a HUD real estate broker to submit your bids. Also there is a $100 down program available till sometime in October for some of the home .. so don't delay in checking them out.


If you would like more information or someone to ask some real estate questions please feel free to contact me.

Best of Luck .. Bruce

HUD homes are homes that were originally financed with FHA insured loans and the buyer did not pay. Sometimes the lender will forclose and allow them to go back to HUD. HUD is the US Gov Housing and Urban Development entity.

HUD homes are sold on an auction basis. Normally preference is given to owner occupants. The listed price is based on a new appraisal and in most cases a new FHA insured loan can be based on that price. You can bid less if you want, but the sale will normally go to the highest bidder as long as it has met the minimum price that is undisclosed. This means they won't sell for $1 if that is the highest bid.

There are good and bad things about buying a HUD home and we can explain that too you if you are interested. Just let me know if you would like to take a look at it.

FHA loans are insured by HUD (U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development).
When those loans are foreclosed on... HUD owns them.
HUD is now the seller.

Sometimes they are a great deal. Sometimes not so much.
