What are FHA repo homes and how to use them?


FHA repo homes are in fact foreclosure homes owned by the lender. They are also called real estate owned (REO) properties, foreclosure homes, repossessed properties, government homes, commercial seized properties, etc.

If you are an investor or a potential home buyer with limited funds, you may like to try buying a repo home. They are cheaper, and come in all size and type - 1 to 4 units, condos, business properties, etc. The lender will be eager to get rid of FHA repo homes, so they sell 10-25% below market price.

Many FHA repo homes need a lot of repairs, so it is useful to avoid run-down REO properties, as they will be expensive to repair.

FHA repo homes are located on foreclosure home databases - online or through real estate agents.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
