Bid Awards

Barring any technical difficulties, winning bids are posted  by 1:00 PM PM on the next business day following the bid deadline. The posted bid results should be considered preliminary acceptance subject to the review and approval of a correct and timely sales package. Owner occupant bid acceptance is also subject to verification of compliance with HUD

owner occupant guidelines. In the case of an GNND/OND/TND sale, the award is subject to verification of information reported on the required HUD 9548-A contract addendum.


Bid Acceptance - If your bid is accepted it is your responsibility to send the original signed sales package to the Asset Manager including the purchaser’s prequalification letter or verification of cash within 48 hours (weekend and holidays excluded).


Over-bidding with FHA Financing - If the purchaser is obtaining FHA financing, your buyer will be required to use HUD’s FHA “AS-IS” appraisal. Therefore, if the purchaser overbids the appraised value and is obtaining FHA financing, the purchaser must pay the overbid difference in cash. This is because FHA will not insure a loan greater than the appraised value of the property


Pre-Qualification of Purchasers Broker/agents are responsible to see that potential buyers have been pre-qualified for a loan by a lender. A pre-qualification letter on the lender’s letterhead must be submitted with the sales contract package.
