Information About HUD Real Estate: Buying a HUD Home, HUD homes for sale in Maricopa Arizona:

1.  What is a HUD home?  When a loan that was insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) goes into default, the lender begins the process to collect on the loan.  The lender may submit a claim against the FHA insurance fund and convey ownership of the property to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  HUD then sells the property at the current market value.
