St. George HUD Home For Sale - Park Model

by Jeremy Larkin

St. George HUD homes are becoming something MORE normal than less. I say this because a just a few years ago we really didn't see any quantity of HUD homes in the St. George real estate markets. Heavens...we didn't see many St. George foreclosures PERIOD!

This St. George HUD home, marketed by The Larkin Group at Keller Williams Realty, is a "Park Model" unit located in the "Dixie Downs Resort" subdivision on North Dixie Downs Road. Dixie Downs Resort is an EXTREMELY quiet, low-traffic area, and according to subdivision CC&R's is a "55 and older" community. Be sure of course to check with the local HOA for exact details. 

Make this St. George HUD home your year round or 2nd home in active 55+ resort community. Clean, cozy 1 bedroom mobile home. You'll be close to shopping, restaurants, golf, state park, and great hiking. Sold as is where is.

Directions: From Sunset Blvd, north on Dixie Downs Dr. to Dixie Downs RV Resort. Take an immediate RIGHT and then Left -- lot 164 is just past clubhouse on left side. 

It's important to note that when purchasing a St. George HUD home all bidding is done online via www.HudHomeStore.com. Contact your preferred Real Estate Professional for assistance - it's worth the trouble as HUD paperwork can be a bit tricky. Go to www.bidselect.com or www.hudhomestore.com to learn more about this home & how/who can bid.

Can I REALLY Purchase a St. George HUD Home for $100 Down?!

by Jeremy Larkin

St. George HUD homes may be just what the Doctor ordered for St. George Home Buyers (UTAH home Buyers actually) with great credit, steady employment, but who lack large down payment resources. 

HUD $100 Down Program

Since the beginning of home purchasing history, large down payment requirements have made home ownership a challenge for many otherwise qualified home buyers. While many believe that the recent St. George Real Estate boom, and subsequent BUST, hurt just about everyone, there are just as many, if not MORE, qualified Buyers who did NOT purchase a home in the boom, and subsequently damage their credit, etc, as there were those who DID.

In an effort to meet the needs of the current home buying marketplace, HUD is offering a $100 down payment on St. George HUD homes where offers are at or above current list price. 

I know what you’re thinking: “Oh so there’s a catch. I have to offer list price or ABOVE!” Before you get bent out of shape, let me assure you that 75% of St. George HUD homes are being listed BELOW market value! For instance, one of the Larkin Group’s personal St. George HUD home listings in Bloomington Hills was just reduced to $133,200 yesterday.  It’s a 5 bed, 3 bath, 3075 Basement home! That home will almost assuredly see a “bidding war” this week. See it here: Bloomington Hills HUD HOME. 

St. George HUD Home $100 Down Purchasing Requirements

  • Purchasers must be owner/occupants
  • Utilize FHA insured financing
  • Offer full list price or above
  • Any offers exceeding appraised value require the buyer to provide the additional funds at closing.

Remember that offering on a St. George HUD home is done much differently that what you’ve probably experienced in offering on other St. George foreclosures. The process is handed online via what we refer to as a “sealed bid”, so be sure to contact your FHA Lender or HUD approved Real Estate Agent for further information.
