I was looking at some different options for my client. You may not republish, offer for sale, or otherwise make publicly available HomePath contents, or use HomePath contents for marketing purposes, without Fannie Mae’s prior specific written approval. You must use a HUD approved broker such as NextHome SunRaye Realty to submit your bid.
HUD homes usually sell for 85% – 88% of the asking price. The opening screen page featuring a list of cities that have HUD Homes for sale appears below. With the red hot real estate market showing no signs of letting up, prospective home buyers need to get increasingly creative in order to land their dream home, or any home for that matter.
HUD also allows, and will pay, up to 3% of the purchase price for the selling agent’s commission, which should be entered on Line 6a of the Sales Contract. HUD homes are initially offered to owner-occupant purchasers (people who are buying the home as their primary residence).
When payments are not paid on a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the lender (mortgagee) forecloses, or accepts a deed-in-lieu. If financing is still not secured by the time the period for completing the contract has elapsed, the buyer can lose the property, including the deposit that he has put down for the house.
This makes it easier for real estate investors to go forward with buying HUD homes since they don’t have to negotiate with sellers or their agents. Hud will always conduct an inspection prior to listing the home for-sale. Individuals may not purchase a home under the Dollar Homes Government Sales Program.
