HUD Homes is your source for Government Foreclosures. The database of liquidation properties, real estate listings, and homes for sale offered on the HUD Homes app consists of Government foreclosures for sale, known as HUD properties. HUD properties are often sold considerably below their market value, making them a great deal for buyers. HUD stands for Department of Housing and Urban Development (US government). A HUD property is a residential property acquired by HUD as a result of a foreclosure action on an FHA-insured mortgage. The HUD Homes app is the first ever iPhone app to offer access to HUD properties exclusively. The HUD Homes app has a nationwide HUD properties data feed and a Property Condition Report on nearly every HUD property on the app.
