This is one of the questions our prospective clients ask us most often. So it was only natural to include it in our Real Estate Investing Guide.

What are HUD Homes? Along with conventional mortgages, the federally insured (FHA) loan program is one of the most commonly used financing options for residential real estate in the United States.
