Checking it out before you check in.

Before you buy anything, you'll want to know exactly what it is you're getting. With something as important as your home, you can't know too much. That's why it's a good idea to get a professional inspection of your home--even before you make the offer. HUD strongly urges every home buyer to get a professional inspection, whether your'e buying a HUD Home or not. HUD Homes are sold in "as-is" condition. That means you agree, if you buy the home, to accept it in its present condition. HUD does not pay for the correction of defects in existing homes that it sells or on homes purchased with FHA-insured mortgages. The owner of the home will be responsbile for needed repairs. Therefore, be sure of the condition of the home before you submit your offer.
