Buying A Foreclosure Home With No Money Down

There are several ways to accomplish the purchase of buying homes without using any cash. this article is just a couple of way of doing it. Owner occupents are the focus as these tactics are available to investors.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) foreclosure homes are different from any other type of foreclosure home in that there are several methods of buying a property utilizing low money down or no money down techniques. It is essential to first understand the several different ways in which the FHA lists the foreclosure homes that they are selling.

IN = Insured

IN indicates a foreclosure home that currently meets minimum property standards (MPS) and is currently in livable condition. IN foreclosure are not currently available with no money down, but can be obtained with no money by applying these techniques.

Simply bid on the foreclosure home using an FHA 203b mortgage (as seen on the HUD contract) and then have the foreclosure home inspected. Be certain that you are with the home inspector and that the home inspector understands that you are interested in finding the deficiencies of the foreclosure home. Be sure the foreclosure home deficiencies are included in the necessary MPS items, including structural, heating and plumbing—paint and carpet will not be enough.

Send the foreclosure home inspection along with your request to include the necessary funds in the price you are paying for the foreclosure home. Repair funds requested must exactly meet the increase of the purchase price for the foreclosure home. Be sure that the amount requested is less than $5500 and that is approximately the three percent you were required to put down on the mortgage.

You could increase the amount of money received for repairs by applying for a 203k mortgage after the foreclosure home has been inspected. This raises the amount of funds received to a possible limit of 110% of the value of the foreclosure home after repair.

IE = Insured with Escrow

IE indicates a foreclosure home that requires some degree of repair in order to meet MPS. Additionally, IE foreclosures are not currently in livable condition. These foreclosure homes are not currently available with no money down but can be acquired with no money by applying these techniques.

UI = Uninsured

UI indicates a foreclosure home that requires repairs in order to meet FHA standards and that is currently not in livable condition. UI foreclosures are available with low money down but can be obtained with no money down. It is even possible to buy these foreclosure homes and make a substantial profit if you apply the following techniques.

Simply bid on the foreclosure home using an FHA 203k repair mortgage (as seen on the HUD contract) and then have the foreclosure home inspected. Be certain that you are with the home inspector and that the inspector understands that you are interested in finding all of the deficiencies of the foreclosure home. Be sure that the foreclosure home deficiencies are included in the FHA minimums, including structural, heating and plumbing—paint and carpet will not be enough.

The home inspector will send the foreclosure home inspection to the mortgage lender along with the financial requirements to do all of the noted repairs. The inspector’s assessment of the repair cost can be adjusted up or down in order for you to get enough money to complete the repairs. Be sure to allocate enough so that you can break even on the purchase. If you have any need for additional cash, include a margin so that you can either add to your savings or pay some additional debt off. The maximum mortgage allowed is 110% of the value of the property after repairs. The bank generally frowns on this practice, but if you act as the general contractor and work on the foreclosure home yourself, you can pay yourself for the work performed.
