Who can buy a HUD Home?
   Almost anyone! If you have the cash or can qualify for a loan (subject to certain restrictions) you may buy a HUD home. HUD homes are initially offered to owner-occupant purchasers (people who are buying the homes as their primary residence). Following the priority period for owner-occupants, unsold properties are available to all buyers, including investors.
How are HUD Homes sold?
   All properties available for purchase by the public are offered for sale at internet listing sites maintained by management companies under contract to HUD. Any real estate broker registered with HUD may submit an offer and contract to purchase on your behalf. HUD pays the real estate broker's commission, if included in the contract.
Are there any special programs?
   Properties in designated areas are available at a reduced sales price to law enforcement officers, teachers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, non-profits and local governments. You can read more about these Good Neighbor Initiatives at  and

Should I get a home inspection?
  We encourage you to get an inspection after your offer is accepted. All HUD homes are sold AS-IS, without warranty. HUD will not make repairs nor pay to correct any problems. This is a good reason why you should use Advanced Real Estate Services guidance to help protect your investment.
What about financing?
   Although HUD does not offer financing directly, some of our homes qualify for FHA-insured loans. Shop around for a lender to find the best loan terms. Advanced Real Estate Services also works with many lenders in the market securing financing on behalf of clients.
