FHA foreclosures can be an excellent opportunity to build instant equity. Nationally, four percent of all FHA home loans will go into foreclosure because of a loss of a job, divorce, or illness. While these situations are sad, they can be an excellent opportunity for a first time home buyer or a real estate investor looking for a bargain with FHA foreclosures.

Many mortgages are sold to or insured by HUD (the Department of Housing and Urban Development-usually FHA or VA), Fannie Mae, or Freddie Mac. If a homeowner defaults on their FHA mortgage one of these agencies will take title to the property and sell it to the highest bidder. Often these FHA foreclosures bids are completed significantly below market value, creating instant equity for the successful bidder.
Financing these FHA foreclosures is a specialized area of mortgage banking and we have had extensive experience with the FHA foreclosures process. Your FHA foreclosure property may need some rehabilitation or renovation and we offer many loan options on my FHA foreclosures renovation loan page.
