There is a pretty simple way to find whether or not a certain condominium complex is FHA-Approved. Step 1:  Go to Google.com or Yahoo.com and enter "HUD approved condos" or just click here ---->  HUD Approved Condo Search Page. Step 2:  Put in "Pre-HRAP/DELRAP"   Put in Tract #...if you have a real estate agent, ask them to give you Tract #.  If you don't have an agent, call me....then put in your state and select the "ALL" term. Step 3:  Hit "Send"  It's really hit or miss when it comes to FHA approved condo complexes, so you can waste a LOT of time putting in offers if you don't know whether the complex is FHA approved or not.  That is, if you're an FHA buyer.

I am proud to share a letter with you that my Seller on 911 Jade Circle, in Placentia recently sent to my Broker. I became the Real Estate Agent for The Wagner's when I was referred to them by of their friends that was my past clients. I actually represented 3 families in their group of friends. I SOLD all of thier homes in 2009 when they all retired and moved to Arizona.
