What Is A HUD Home and Can I Buy One?

HUD homes – the backstory

You may have heard that HUD homes are a good deal if you are looking into buying a home. But what is a HUD home and why is it available at such a bargain cost?

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) defines a “HUD home” as “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. In other words, it’s a property bought using an FHA-insured loan, didn’t meet the monthly mortgage, ended up in foreclosure, bought back by HUD, who is now selling it. That’s how it became a HUD home.

As to why it is available at a lower cost than other homes for sale in Charlotte, it is because the possible cost of repairs is reflected from the price.

HUD wants to sell these homes as soon as possible. To sweeten the deal, they even offer benefits and incentives for the buyers.

The HUD incentives

One such incentive is “The Good Neighbor Next Door Program” which seeks to “encourage renewal of revitalization areas by providing an opportunity for law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and teachers to purchase homes in these communities…in the form of 50% discount off the list of eligible properties”.

If you happen be a community worker mentioned on the list, you are entitled to 50% off on top of the already low-priced home! Imagine the money you’ll be able to save from that!

If the foreclosed homes are not sold within six months, HUD has another special offer. The agency may sell them for $1 each to local governments to  “foster housing opportunities for low to moderate income families and address specific community needs”.

How can you buy one?

For the list of available HUD real estate owned (REO) single-family properties, you can visit the HUD Home Store. This site offers the public, brokers, potential owner-occupants, state and local governments and nonprofit organizations a centralized location where they can search for HUD properties for sale.

It is also the site where registered real estate brokers and other organizations can send bids on behalf of their clients who want to purchase a HUD property.

When you’ve found a Charlotte home you like, contact a HUD-approved real estate broker who can setup a showing for you to visit the home. Unlike the process of buying regular homes, you have to place bids through your agent, and there is a time period where bids are accepted. When that bidding period is over, HUD checks all the bids and accepts the best bid where their agency can get the highest net.

HUD homes are sold as is. If the home you like requires repairs, you will be the one responsible for it. Which is why HUD encourages interested home buyers to get a home inspection before submitting an offer for the home.

✋What Mistakes Can Seriously Hamper the Sale of Your Charlotte NC Home

homes for sale in Charlotte NC

Mistakes on the small things aren’t a big deal.

However, when it comes to selling your home, you need to do everything right. Before you get too excited about seeing the “Sold” sign out on your lawn, there are some things you should be  aware of first.

Homeowners, especially first time sellers, often commit mistakes that cause negative feedback on their home and hamper their sale.

Here are three major blunders you should avoid at all costs:

1. Improperly Pricing the Home

The most common reason why a home doesn’t sell is that the asking price has been set too high. A high price will make buyers wonder what is so special about the property but might leave them disappointed in the end.

If you price your home too high, you’re setting yourself up for a number of obstacles to selling your Charlotte NC home. Even if you receive an offer, the deal may fall apart before the closing because the buyer might encounter problems financing at too high a price.

Keep in mind that the right asking price is your most important tool in real estate. A professional market analysis done by an experienced agent like me can give you the accurate, reliable foundation you need to price your home right.

As your agent, I will evaluate your home’s location and lot size; your home’s age, size and condition; the number of bedrooms, baths, and total rooms; and the kinds of extra features it has. Then, I will compare your home with similar properties currently for sale or recently sold.  As the top real estate agent in Charlotte, I have access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which gives me all the information needed to accurately and thoroughly compare your home to similar properties.

2. Staying too emotionally attached

It’s natural to grow fond of the home where you created memories with your family and friends. However, once you decide to sell, you’ll have to emotionally detach from your home. You must now view the property as a blank canvas that is ready for someone else’s memories to be created there.

Although your home may hold a lot of sentimental value, it does not directly translate to its financial value. You can’t price your home according to what it means to you.  

Some sellers make the mistake of pricing their home too high due to their attachment to the property. However, this can backfire and cause the home to languish on the market instead.

Take the time to ensure you’re emotionally prepared for the home selling process so you won’t end up sabotaging your chances of a quick and successful sale.

3. Limited showings

If your home is priced right and shows well, you could get showing requests within hours of listing the home with your agent. To sell it quickly, you need to cooperate when your real estate agent wants to show it.

Your goal is to accommodate as many buyers as possible, even if their timing is inconvenient. If you turn away prospective buyers or make it difficult to show your home, it sends a negative message — that you’re not motivated or serious about selling.

If your house isn’t easy to show, it won’t be easy to sell either.  You’ll need to be flexible when buyers ask to see your home even on short notice.

 

If you avoid these classic mistakes, you might close your sale faster and easier than you’d have thought possible.

We would love to work with you!

Call me, Nancy Braun, at 704-997-3794. We deliver fast results! The average agent sells a home in 67 days, while our average time for selling a home is only 43 days!
