A HUD Home is a 1-4 unit single-family residence acquired as a result of a foreclosure on an FHA-insured mortgage. These homes are offered for sale at fair market value based on recent appraisal. They vary in price, condition, and location. HUD Homes are sold as-is, meaning they come with no guarantees or warranties. It also means that no repairs have been made to the home past making it safe, secure, and marketable.
The home will be appraised and listed at its actual value. This means that the listing price will reflect the worth of the home in its current condition as well as the cost of repairs Buyers will make. The home can be paid for in cash or with a loan, if the Buyer qualifies. HUD offers incentives and specialized programs to Buyers of HUD homes, such as the FHA 203(K) Rehabilitation Loan. Buyers can also request HUD pay the closing costs on their home.
