What is a "HUD home"?
A HUD Home is a property that was previously financed with an FHA insured mortgage and where the owner has defaulted on the loan. The lender then forecloses on the home. FHA pays the lender what is owed on the house, and the lender transfers ownership to FHA/HUD. Then HUD offers the home for sale at market value with the intent to sell as quickly as possible.
HUD homes attract a wide range of buyers, including investors, first time home buyers, teachers, police officers, firefighters, and EMT, as well as many other individuals.
Teachers, Police officers, Firefighters can buy a HUD home through a special sales program, under which when approved, may purchase properties at discounted prices.
Who can buy a HUD home?
Anyone can buy a HUD home who has the Cash or can qualify for a mortgage. An owner occupant who plans on making the property his primary residence generally has priority over other buyers. However, this priority does expire after a period of time, and the real estate property becomes available to other qualified buyers.
