HUD Foreclosure question

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAXPrestige

I have a buyer who has been contacting me for information on HUD homes. He has been looking at the bidselect website to see the homes that are available. On the details of many of the homes it tells you that you can buy the home with a program that allows for only $100 down.

I have not been able to find any information about this.

Is there anyone out there that can help me?

Sue - I don't know who HUD has contracted to do their homes in Texas (here it is MCBREO) on their site we have specific instructions about the $100 down program. That is for a full price offer. Here is a snippet of the beginning of what's applies to Colorado - "We are pleased to announce a special sales incentive for owner occupant purchasers who will be utilizing FHA financing. HUD is currently offering a $100 Down payment initiative. The $100 down payment is for owner occupants..." Hope this helps. ~Rita

I am a HUD approved selling Broker in Georgia.  I know loans are different from state to state.  Maybe this phone number from the site above will be helpful.  Good luck.

This information is believed to be accurate, but is not guaranteed.

This was from a listing in your county in Texas.  You need to go to and see if you need to get registered to sell HUD homes in your state if you are not already.  If you are, I think you should call this number.  In Georgia the process took me about 3 months to get all the paper work and get approved initially.  If you are not you might need to refer these clients to an agent who can sell them the house while you are getting approved.  Information above just mentions the program and has a phone number.  I'm not saying it was "this" house

Good afternoon, I hope this helps It lists by state and for Texas the link takes you to bid sellect ( When I clicked on the link apparently there are 1500 homes they have represented at the moment. If the home qualifies for the $100 down then it states so underneath. Good luck.

Thank you everyone for your help.

For some reason I just could not get to the bottom of this.

We are gradually finding out what all the requirements are and figuring out if it will work for a buyer.

Again thank you for your posts,
