Question: I hear that HUD sells homes. How can I buy one?
Answer: Read our section on how to buy a HUD home. Then look at the listings of HUD homes available. If you find a home that interests you, you'll need to contact a HUD-approved real estate broker (most brokers are HUD-approved), who can submit a bid for you. Successful bids are posted right on the page for your state.
Question 2: How can I get listings of HUD homes for sale?
Answer: You can see lists of HUD homes for sale right on our web page. In addition, we link to listings of homes being sold by other federal agencies. You can even get directions to the properties that interest you, see their locations on a map, and find out what schools are in the area.
Question 3: Will HUD buy my house? Can I sell my home to HUD?
Answer: No. HUD does not buy homes. The homes that HUD sells come into HUD's possession as a result of defaults on FHA (HUD) insured mortgages.
