What Are HUD Homes?
A HUD home is a 1-to-4 unit residential property acquired by HUD as a result of a foreclosure action on an FHA-insured mortgage. HUD becomes the property owner and offers it for sale to recover the loss on the foreclosure claim.
Who Can Buy a HUD Home?
Anyone who has the required cash or can qualify for a loan (subject to certain restrictions) may buy a HUD Home. HUD Homes are initially offered to owner-occupant purchasers (people who are buying the home as their primary residence). Following the priority period for owner occupants, unsold properties are available to all buyers, including investors.
What would make me not eligible to buy a property?
Owner-occupants are not eligible if they purchased a HUD property as owner-occupants in the past two (2) years.
Can I bid on homes myself?
No. HUD requires all bids be submitted through a HUD-registered broker.
