Am I really ready to buy?

Buying a home offers many advantages, one of the most significant being that it allows you to build equity (ownership) when you pay your mortgage each month. A common myth is that monthly mortgage payments are more expensive than rent. But, in many cases, mortgage payments can be even less than rent. When considering home ownership for the first time, you need to decide whether buying makes financial and practical sense for you right now or if you are better off renting. Consider both the advantages and disadvantages to renting as well as buying, and weigh the pros and cons for your particular situation.

HUD REO 100 Down Mortgage

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offer a program called the $100 Down Payment Incentive that’s designed to help the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) get rid of unsold HUD homes.
In other words, no matter how much the house costs, you only have to put down $100, whether you’re a buyer or an investor.
Of course, that isn’t the sum total of the cash you’ll need. There are closing costs, although FHA will kick in as much as 3 percent of the sales price toward those closing costs. Plus, it will finance the transaction for those who plan to live in the house as a primary residence.
So, what is the catch to the HUD REO 100 Down Mortgage?  The only catch is the property must be a HUD owned home.  Basically, a HUD home is a home that was foreclosed on and had an FHA-insured mortgage.  HUD pays off the losses of the bank or lender and takes the home back to sell,  thus recouping their losses.  It is then offered for sale at market value, based on a recent AS-IS appraisal, meaning, and the market value in its current condition. If you find a HUD home you like, a HUD registered realtor is needed to help set up a showing and to make a bid.  HUD homes are listed for sale by management companies under contract by HUD.

FHA & HUD $100 Down Mortgage Program

Many buyers are not aware that FHA & HUD have a special $100 down mortgage program, mainly because this is a specialty program. In fact very few lenders and banks specialize in and offer the HUD 100 down program.
The property must be a HUD owned home. Basically a HUD home is a home that was foreclosed on and had a FHA-insured mortgage. HUD pays off the losses of the lender and takes the home back to sell and recoup their losses. It is then offered for sale at market value, based on a recent AS-IS appraisal, meaning, and the market value in its current condition. If you find a HUD home you like, a HUD registered realtor is needed to help set up a showing and to make a bid. Also, the buyer will still need to pay earnest money(deposit) for the home as well.
The benefits of the HUD $100 down home loan.
  • Only $100 down payment is required to purchase one of these homes (some closing cost may still apply.)
  • Offers the Lowest Down Payment requirement (very close to 100% financing.)
  • Generally easier to qualify for than conventional loans.
  • Generally offers lower interest rates than conventional loans.
  • Total loan amount cannot exceed FHA maximum county loan limits.
