What does $100 down government owned mean?
Just so, how does the HUD $100 down program work?
Well, $100 is pretty low! The HUD $100 down program is an FHA loan with a twist. Instead of the minimum required 3.5% of the price down payment, FHA allows a $100 minimum required investment. In order to use the HUD $100 down program, the property must be a HUD foreclosure or in other words, a HUD REO.
Furthermore, are all HUD homes 100 down? Available exclusively for the purchase of HUD homes, this specialty FHA program allows for a down payment of just $100. In the standard FHA loan the minimum down payment for a purchase is 3.5 percent.
Keeping this in view, what is the 100 down HUD program?
The program you are referring to is FHA's $100 Down Program. The $100 Down sales incentive permits a Borrower to purchase a HUD REO Property with FHA-insured financing with a minimum downpayment of $100. This program can ONLY be used to purchase homes owned by HUD.
