HUD Tips

1. Do your research before moving to quickly
Many buyers assume that, if the US Department of HUD is selling the property, it must be a great deal. This could not be further from the truth! When the HUD inventory is low, oftentimes buyers will bid the property up to, or above the fair market value. Look at every HUD deal on its own merit & make your decision based on that.

2. Understand the Bidding Process
HUD purchases are very different than conventional deals because they follow a “blind” bidding process. The bidding date is released by HUD & each buyer submits their best offer without the knowledge of any other bids. As long as HUD finds the highest offer acceptable, that offer is the one accepted. HUD retains the right to refuse all offers.

3. Know the Difference Between “Owner-Occupant” & “Investor” 
One of HUD’s goals is to increase the number of US citizens who own homes. Because of this, they give preferential treatment to owner-occupants over investors. Owner-occupants have the first 10 days to bid on any home before it is released to investors. A buyer may bid as an owner-occupant once every two years. Make sure and bid honestly – otherwise it is illegal & can result in hefty fines.

4. Anticipate Repairs
You are allowed the opportunity to a 3rd party inspection before closing, however buyers cannot negotiate repairs based on the results. Backing out of HUD deals and retaining your earnest money is trickier than conventional purchases, so you may run the risk of losing your earnest money. Make sure and go through the home thoroughly before bidding on it.

5. Continuously Monitor the Inventory
As foreclosure rates rise and fall, so does HUD’s inventory. The laws of supply and demand apply to HUD inventory. When it is high, your chances of getting a great deal are better than when they are low. Follow the asking price and sales price of HUD homes. If they are selling far over asking, it might not be the time to buy.

6. Make Sure Your Realtor & Lender Know the Process

7. Act Quickly & Decisively
Because HUD places very strict time constraints on bidding, and due to the bidding process, you must act quickly and decisively. You will typically have 1 to 2 weeks from the date HUD places the property on the market until the bidding period begins & more often than not, the property will be purchased on the first day of bidding. Make sure and exercise your due diligence, and make your decision quickly, you rarely get a second chance.

Dollar Homes
HUD's $1 Homes program helps local governments to foster housing opportunities for low to moderate income families & address specific community needs by offering them the opportunity to purchase qualified HUD owned homes for a dollar each. 

$1 Homes are single family homes that are acquired by the Federal Housing Administration as a result of foreclosure actions. Single family properties are made available through the program whenever FHA is unable to sell the homes for 6 months. 

By selling vacant homes for a dollar after 6 months on the market, HUD makes it possible for communities to fix up the homes & put them to good use at a large savings. The newly occupied homes can then act as catalysts for neighborhood revitalization, attracting new residents & businesses to an area.
