    Thinks it's something like a "Housing administration" or something like that?

    I always heard to stay away from HUD. The government and the type of people who live in these units/houses that you deal with were too much of a headache for many people around here. I had an chance once but after talking to a few people I didn't go for it.

    Glad it is working out for you.

    These are foreclosed properties. So far, only one home was in a "bad" area of town. We have had several properties over $100,000 in value. Actually, one we did Friday has a list price of $289,000. Most people think of hud as the projects but it is any houses that went through foreclosure.

    I did a search on Realtor.com for houses in Alabama. I couldn't believe what you can buy for 100,000. Up here in Maine $100,000 will barely get you a building that you actually live in (running water, solid roof, electricity) , and that's if you're lucky enough to find a super deal.

    Housing and Urban Development, the federal govt. gives low intrest loans to low income first time buyers with little down. Surprising that they pay their bill quickly though.
