HUD-owned Homes $100 Down Program – A down payment of only $100 may be required toward the purchase of a Georgia Dream Home anywhere in Metro Atlanta including all of the City of Atlanta and the seller will pay closing costs of up to three-percent (should be all) too. The credit-eligible borrower will also need $500 to $1,000 for an earnest money deposit, but $900 will be credited back at closing. Plan on $325 or so for a home inspection, around $450 for a possible appraisal fee, and $400 or so for utility deposits and the unknown. Many of these HUD-owned homes are in great condition and can close within thirty days, so please visit the $100 Down HUD-owned Home Page and then call for details today.
