Buying a HUD home requires a little more knowledge and expertise than other real estate transactions. Because of this Brokers who wish to represent a buyer must be approved and issued a NAID number “name and identifier” in order to submit offers for their clients.
Because I am a HUD listing broker it is part of my responsibility to teach agents how to how to get approved, sell HUD homes, and navigate through the unique HUD process because it’s a very different process than what they are used to.
To be successful the agent will have taken my HUD classes and learned the ins and outs of the process so they can represent their buyers with the most current and up-to-date forms and tools provided to successfully sell a HUD home. If your agent responds that they haven’t completed the HUD training classes please reconsider using them or ask them to get registered and trained, as it will not only help them in their business but will allow them to represent you properly.
There’s an App for that!
Mobile phones and tablets are becoming more and more popular every day. Increasingly, consumers are turning towards these devices to use in their home buying search experience. The Department of Housing and Urban Development has released a set of apps for Android and iOS users which allows you to easily browse the available HUD inventory in your area or across the country! Remember, all HUD Home offers are submitted directly to HUD and they then choose what is accepted. Your Realtor’s MLS isn’t always the most up-to-date source for available HUD Homes so be sure to keep checking HUD Home Store.
