One of the different types of government owned property is a HUD Foreclosure. The homes offered through the HUD foreclosure procedure is offered to low and medium income families but you must qualify to receive them. The general public must already be accepted for a loan to bid on these HUD Foreclosure homes.
Though anyone who meets the loan requirements can qualify for a HUD Foreclosure home, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will give priority to prospect homeowners who intend to live in the houses they purchase. They also give priority to teachers, emergency technicians, law enforcement officers, and firefighters in order to relocate to neighborhoods being upgraded by the HUD Foreclosure program.
