HUD homes not as plentiful as years past - Buying a HUD Home


Back in 2007 to 2011, buying a HUD Home was  great option for first time home buyers as well as investors. In fact, during that time frame, I probably closed on average, 70 HUD Homes a year. I called it "Buying a home right side up". Unfortunately, the world of HUD Changed and its a rare occurrence to see HUD homes come up for sale in Maricopa or Pinal County. This is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with just over 2100 square feet. This HUD Home in Gilbert was built in 2000 and is located just off Higley and Pecos in the San Tan Ranch Community. The home is located on an interior lot, a dead end street, which limits the neighborhood traffic. Walking distance to multiple community parks.  This particular HUD home in Gilbert just hit the market on March 9th. If you are looking for a HUD home in Gilbert, call me today at 602-321-6188 or visit me online at


I have seen HUD homes pop up in the West Valley more frequently than I see in the East Valley, not sure why either, This Glendale HUD Home features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and nearly 1400 square feet. This home was built in 1996 and is located just off 67th Ave and Greenway in the Rancho Mirage Estates. This home has vaulted ceilings, a rare two way fireplace that serves the living and dining areas. The kithen is large with a ton of cabinet and counter top space. A nice walk in pantry is perfect for those costco shopping trips. A Great opportunity at $226,000 again, 602-321-6188.


Another west valley HUD home, this one is located in a 55+ Community, IE, an active adult community, so whoever pursues this HUD Home in Peoria, must be at least 55 years old. This home, features 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with just over 1500 square feet. This Peoria HUD Home is located just off 91st Ave and Union Hills in the Lakeview Estates community, which is located within Westbrook Village. This home is also located within a golf course community, so its perfect for those over 55 looking for access to a Golf Course on a daily basis. To learn more about this home, 602-321-6188.

Buying a HUD home does have its advantages, often times the list price is well below the market norm. In the past, they would provide the full inspection report and termite, which was fantastic as it saved the buyer $350-450 out of pocket cost. You are dealing with a govt entity as a seller, so there are some nuances that need to be dealt with, but that is why you have me, I have sold over 500 HUD Homes in my career, so more than happy to walk you through the process and get you into a home today. 602-321-6188.
