What is a HUD Home?
A HUD Home is a one to four unit single-family residence, condominium or townhome that has been conveyed to HUD by the lender as a result of foreclosure when the borrower defaults on the FHA-insured loan. HUD in turn sells the property at “AS IS” market value based on a recent appraisal as quickly as possible through an Asset Manager (AM) Contractor such as PEMCO, LTD. HUD Homes vary in price, location, and condition. Some are move‐in ready condition and others are not.
Who can buy a HUD Home?
Anyone with a valid Tax ID (*SSN or Employer Federal Tax ID) issued in the United States can buy a HUD home. Potential buyers must qualify for a mortgage or pay cash to buy a HUD home. Buyers must have a pre-qualification letter from a certified lender, or proof of funds in the amount of, or greater than the gross purchase price of the property.
