The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development maintains a list of homes for sale all across the country. These houses are foreclosures from the Federal Housing Administration, Veterans Affairs and other government lending initiatives. After these homes are foreclosed, they eventually enter a HUD database of properties for sale. HUD must approve any offers to purchase one of these homes, which can take longer than submitting an offer to a regular seller.
Type “homes for sale” in the search box on HUD’s website. A link to homes for sale will appear in a list. Click the link labeled “Homes for Sale/US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).” This will take you to a search page with a list of single-family homes for sale. Several agencies will have links for the specific types of homes they own. Click on the “From HUD” link.
