Investors can buy HUD Homes, but there are some restrictions on investor bidding. Here are some things investors should know about HUD Homes.
- HUD gives owner occupant buyers priority in the bidding process. When a property is listed for sale as a new listing, only owner occupant bids are accepted for the first 30 days.
- Investors can place bids on newly listed properties on Day 31. Investors can purchase only one HUD property in a 24-month period.
- Investors are not eligible for FHA financing.
- Earnest money requirements are higher for investors than owner occupants.
- Nonprofit investors may qualify for a “First Look” at HUD Homes if they intend to offer the property as affordable housing following their purchase.
