HUD Process

HUD Process for Buying HUD Properties

The following has been reprinted from for your convenience.

General Public Bid Period

At the conclusion of the 10-day Exclusive Listing Priority Period, all general public bids will be accepted. These bids will be reviewed and the highest acceptable net bid to HUD will be selected.

In the event the property remains unsold after these bid openings, daily bids received by 11:59 p.m. will be reviewed and results will be posted the next day at 1:00 p.m.

Bids received on the same day shall be considered to have been received simultaneously. Friday, Saturday and Sunday bids will be reviewed simultaneously on Mondays at 1:00 p.m., and the highest acceptable net bid to HUD will be selected.

In the event the property remains unsold, the bids (Owner-Occupant and General Public) will be reviewed and posted daily at 1:00 p.m. and the highest acceptable net to HUD bid shall be selected. This listing will remain in effect until the listing has been sold or withdrawn from the market to be reanalyzed. Bids must be completed and confirmed on the Internet before 11:59 p.m. in order to be valid for that day and will be opened the next day excluding Friday, Saturday and Sunday which will be opened on Monday.

Contract must be submitted within 48 hours

If your bid is acknowledged, your broker must submit a correct HUD Sales Contract, along with other required forms and Addendums signed by you, to the HMBI Regional office within 48 hours. You may be required to submit proof of financing commitment or cash to close, along with other items. You should be working with your broker to put the required items in place before you bid on a home, so that you are ready when the time comes.
