These lower prices make HUD owned homes in Denver very affordable, which is great for buyers looking for a second home, first-time buyers, or just anyone searching for a deal.

Any real estate transaction can have its ups and downs, but Denver HUD homes have their own set of rules and procedure to follow. For example, there's an offer period for HUD homes, within which all bids must be submitted. The procedure is more structured than a typical home sale. For the first 30 days the HUD home is only offered to owner occupied home buyers only, the if a bis is not accepted the HUD home is offered to investors also.
HUD homes in Denver, as in most other localities, are sold as-is, meaning the new owner cannot request repairs or other improvements subject to purchase. Having said that, these types of properties are usually great deals that offer the opportunity for growth if the new owner is patient enough to withstand the purchase period and learn a little in the process!

Financing Denver HUD Homes for sale
Though HUD itself does not provide financing, there are several ways to finance the purchase of a Denver HUD Home. You can use a standard home loan, an FHA-insured loan, or cash. Keep in mind that when bidding on a HUD-owned home, you will have to prove to HUD that you will be able to make good on your bid in one of these ways.
Non-FHA Financing on HUD Homes
If you are planning to purchase a HUD home with a standard home loan, the loan will not be insured by FHA. When submitting a bid, you will have to include a pre-qualification letter from your lender.
Paying With Cash for a HUD Home
If you are planning to purchase a HUD home with cash, you will need to provide your bank statement or a letter from your bank showing that you have adequate funds to complete the purchase if your bid is accepted.
FHA-insured Loans on HUD Homes
FHA will not insure a loan for greater than the HUD home’s “AS-IS” appraised value. If you overbid the appraised value of a HUD home, the difference must be paid in cash if you use FHA-insured financing. There are several types of FHA-insured loans:
203(b) Regular FHA Loan (IN)–FHA will insure the loan if the HUD property does not have any mandatory repairs.
203(b) Repair Escrow (IE)–FHA will insure the loan if the HUD property needs less than $5000 in repairs to bring it up to Minimum Property Standards, and the repairs are completed by the buyer or the buyer’s agent within 90 days from the date of closing.
203(k) Rehab Loan (IK or UI)–If the HUD property needs more than $5000 in repairs to bring it up to Minimum Property Standards, the lender must obtain an inspection report from an approved 203(k) consultant and a new appraisal.
