As of 10/13/10, all remaining HUD Homes in Indiana being marketed through HMBI will have a 15 day bid period. On 10/28/10 all bids will be opened and evaluated. Unlike the old system where bid results are posted on the afternoon of the next business day, they expect that results will be delayed by a few days. There are expected to be about 170 homes in Indiana that will be subject to this 15 day bidding period.
Listings will continue to be posted under the new selling system. There are currently 8 homes listed under the new system. Those can be found at hudhomestore.com. The majority of HUD Homes under the new system will have a 30 day owner-occupant priority period.

On Sept. 17, for the first Friday in years, there were no new HUD listings. HUD is phasing out the present contractor, HMBI and will be working with new companies moving forward. So what does this mean for the home buyer? Here are several things to note:
- HMBI is still responsible for the sale of remaining homes. As of Monday Sept. 20, there were 461 homes for sale in Indiana. After bids results are posted in the afternoon, ALL homes will be available for bidding by investors as well as owner-occupants.
- When the new listings begin with the new contractors, owner occupant priority will increase to 30 days for homes eligible for FHA Financing. (Categories IN and IE)
- When the new listings begin, owner occupant priority period will decrease to 5 days for HUD Homes that are not eligible for FHA financing. (Category UI)
- Homes will be able to be listed any day of the week. Homes will no longer just be listed on Fridays.
- Information about all HUD Homes in the country will be on a new website, hudhomestore.com

New lists of HUD Homes are released on Fridays. From that day, owner occupants have bidding priority for ten days. After that bids from investors are considered.

Owner occupants have more advantages with HUD Homes. For buyers using FHA financing, down payments are available at participating lenders that are far less than the usual FHA down payment. (It is not zero down, but it is close.) Click below for the updated list of HUD Homes built 1990 are later in Indianapolis and surrounding counties. This list includes areas like Fishers, Noblesville, Sheridan, Brownsburg, Greenwood and other nearby communities. For more information, call my direct number at 317-709-2537.
