When I cme across an opportunity to give something back to those selfless few who give so much in service to others, I'm all too happy to pass it along. This is an outstandng government program that benefits the educators and emergency first responders we rely on every day.
Law enforcement officers, pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers and firefighters/emergency medical technicians can contribute to community revitalization while becoming homeowners through HUD's Good Neighbor Next Door Sales Program.
Not only is this an outstanding way to say, "Thank you," to our often underappreciated heroes-next-door, but the program also helps populate the communities hardest-hit by the recession with quality residents who truly serve their neighbors.
In exchange for purchasing a HUD foreclosure at 50 percent under the home's list price, the buyer must commit to living in the property for 36 months as their sole residence.
