What are some Reasons to Purchase a HUD Home?

· HUD will pay up to 3% of buyers closing cost (must be negotiated in contract)

· If condo or townhome, project approval is not needed — meaning that there is no percentage that has to be owned by owner occupants (Mortgagee Letter 2009-46B, only on HUD Homes)

· FHA appraisal is already completed, so FHA buyers will not need to pay for a new appraisal saving an average of $400. (Appraisal is good for up to 4 months)

· IE finance types have option of doing an FHA standard loan with escrow repair…repairs are done after close of escrow

· Good Neighbor Next Door (GNND) program available in certain areas for eligible buyers

· Sealed bids

· Quick response to bids (within 24 hours after initial bidding period)

· FHA 203K loan option
