Hud Homes are an exciting way to buy your home.  The list of HUD Homes is continually updated.  HUD Homes are loans that were defaulted that were insured by HUD.  The houses are sold as is.  Typically the houses require some repairs to bring them into loanable condition. These houses are sold through a bid process. If you finance your HUD Home through an  FHA loan you pay $100 down plus the closing costs.  If the repairs are under $5,000 a traditional FHA loan will escrow the repairs.  If the repairs are between $5,000 and $30,000 HUD offers a streamlined renovation loan.  Properties requiring over $30,000 in repairs require a renovation loan.  The renovation loan projects, over $30,000 are very difficult to finance.  FHA credit guidelines are more liberal than traditional lenders. HUD also has a special program for law enforcement, educators,fire fighters and emergency medical technicians.  The program is called the Good Neighbor Program.  If you are interested contact us for more information.
