How Does HUD's $100 Down Program Work?

By

house on money

Ohio is one of the states where HUD is still offering consumers their $100 dollar down program but many folks are confused as to exactly how it works.

First it is important to know that the program is for owner/occupants only.

Next it is important to note that the program only applies to FHA Loans.

The components are as follows:

•1.        $100.00 dollars down applies to the down payment only.  ***Key point to keep in mind...-even with this program the $1000.00 earnest money deposit is still due within 48 hours of winning a HUD bid.  The $100 down payment replaces FHA's required 3.5% down payment.

 

•2.       As of Cot. 1st 2008 until further notice the buyer will receive a $2500.00 Sales Incentive which can be used for:

             •a.      Closing Costs

             •b.      Tax-Probations

              •c.      Repairs to the home

              •d.      Replace items in the home

              •e.      Additional Down payment

 

 •3.       $500.00 Real Estate Broker Bonus.  This is in addition to the commission the selling agent receives for the transaction.

Hopefully the HUD's $100 Down Program can work in places such as Washington DC,Maryland and/or Virginia? Hope you will be able to get some buyers with this program. Great post.

Hey Vanessa,

  I love reading your posts on these programs.  As a lender, it is always nice to keep brushing up on guidelines and trying to keep them short and sweet.  Reading your posts allows me to hear a different voice and see a different summary and definitely keeps me sharp.  Thank you so much for keeping me on my toes!!!!

they're doing this in Texas too, although there is no $2500 incentive.  that's interesting.
