http://www.REIClub.com – HUD Homes Are A Great Resource For Finding Below Market Real Estate. Here’s A Quick Explanation On Investing in HUD Properties…

Hi, this is Frank Chen with REIClub.com, the only site you need as a real estate investor. Today I’ve got a quick video on investing in HUD homes.

What are HUD homes? U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
A HUD home is a 1-to-4 unit residential property acquired by HUD as a result of a foreclosure action on an FHA-insured mortgage. HUD becomes the property owner and offers it for sale to recover the loss on the foreclosure claim. HUD offers these properties for sale to both owner-occupants and investors

– HUD homes are usually appraised, then priced at fair market value.
– List Price usually accounts for needed repairs
– Usually sold “As-Is”
– Bidding process – highest net accepted
– Special purchase programs for teachers and law enforcement

There are thousands of highly affordable homes and apartments offered by HUD around the U.S. They create cheap opportunities for real estate investors to find real estate investments. The bidding process is rather simple, but competition can be fierce, so having a mentor with experience and connections can definitely make this process easier. When you start building relations with your bidding real estate agent and brokers, you will start to get insider info on properties before they even hit the auction floor. This is the end goal for most real estate investors seeking this strategy to find real estate.
