What are HUD foreclosures

HUD foreclosures are 1-4 family dwellings, condominium units, or other Real Estate properties. FHA is a division of the HUD and it guarantees the banks that in case the owner defaults on the mortgage and the property is foreclosed, FHA will pay the bank the outstanding amount of their loan. Eventually, ownership of the property is transferred to HUD. Once the ownership is transferred to HUD, they will prepare an auction to sell off the property to the highest bidder. In such times, HUD wants to sell off the foreclosure homes as soon as possible to minimize any further losses, which can be incurred due to delay.
