HUD Discount Sales/Good Neighbor Program
June 22, 2022
Law enforcement officers, teachers (pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade) firefighters and emergency medical technicians can contribute to community revitalization while becoming homeowners through HUD's Good Neighbor Next Door Sales Program. HUD offers a substantial incentive in the form of a discount of 50% from the list price of the home. In return, an eligible buyer must commit to live in the property for 36 months as his/her principal residence. Properties are available for purchase through the program for seven days and thru a lottery system. HUD requires that you sign a second mortgage and note for the discount amount. No interest or payments are required on this "silent second" provided that you fulfill the three-year occupancy requirement. Only HUD-approved selling brokers may place the bid but no selling commission is paid to that real estate broker.
