HUD homes are homes with an insured mortgage from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development—and they can be a very good deal. When someone with a HUD insured mortgage can’t meet the payments, the lender forecloses on the home; HUD pays the lender what is owed and takes ownership of the home, then sells it at fair market value.
Can I become a homebuyer even if I have bad credit, and don’t have much for a down-payment?
