With over a million foreclosure properties available across the US, HUD Foreclosed offers plenty of variety for the home-seeker. It also offers a range of useful information for helping you to work out how and when to buy. Whilst it’s not as developed as some of our top rated foreclosure websites, it still offers a sound service, with discounts for longer membership contracts.
A million properties might sound a lot but actually this is around half the amount you’ll find on some other foreclosure sites. Still, it’s considerable, and with fewer properties there’s less chance of inaccurate or outdated information. Each property is provided with its own sales page, which offers enough information to give you a decent idea of whether or not you’d like to investigate it further.
You can find properties by performing a search based on a state, city or zip code, or simply click on a state map. This is fine, but pretty under developed compared with a lot of other sites, which allow you to specify price range, number of bedrooms and more. The site would really benefit from improving their search features, just to prevent you from having to search through the same properties every time.
A few foreclosure sites offer free services for buyers, whilst others charge a set monthly fee. HUDforeclosed offers 1 month, 6 month or 12 month contracts, with the long term options offering good value for money. Although the site has slightly less to offer in terms of property numbers and features, it is generally superior to those which offer free services.
Unfortunately there’s not a great deal to say about the site’s features, which are lacking in places. Everything considered though, it does contain most of what you need to help you find what you’re looking for. The 21 day free trial for $1 is a good option if you’re not sure whether HUDforeclosed.com can help you or not. Remember, though, that you can be charged for a full month if you don’t cancel before the trial is over. The trial will also be necessary if you want to examine the photos and details of any property.
If you are looking for a foreclosures site which allows you to perform a basic search, locate properties and make contact with the appropriate authorities in the hope of making a purchase, HUD Foreclosures might prove useful. However, if you want a site which provides a greater level of support, plus additional features, you may wish to go elsewhere. This is a useful in between option if you don’t want to spend too much money when house hunting, and are expecting to search for 6 or 12 months.
