What are HUD Homes?

A HUD Home is the result of a foreclosure on a FHA Home Loan.

When someone with a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured mortgage can’t make the payments, the lender forecloses on the home. FHA pays the lender what is owned and then the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) takes ownership of the home.

What Are The Requirements For This Incentive?

  • HUD Foreclosed Homes Only! This FHA $100 Down Payment incentive is for the  foreclosure homes.
  • Home must be financed with an FHA mortgage which includes the FHA 203k. You cannot use conventional financing.
  • This program is for Owner-Occupants only, not for private investors. You have to sign a form at closing stating you are going to live in the property and not use it has an investment such as a rental property.
