Analysis of a Winning Bid - How much did HUD discount? Or: How Low Can you Go? You probably wonder how low you can go when submitting a bid for a Columbus HUD Home. There is no easy answer, as HUD does not publish their acceptance guidelines. I researched a few homes that HUD sold recently to give you an idea about the discounts they have accepted. It appears that the final purchase price depends on how soon offers are submitted. Owner occupant offers usually come in much closer to the original listing price (or the as-is appraised value) than investor bids. If offers fall through (which happens quite frequently) and HUD has to reduce the listing price, then it seems that HUD becomes very motivated. Sometimes they even drop the price so low it creates a bidding frenzy among investors. L...

To cruise or not to cruise! In Columbus Ohio it has been bitter cold! Brr it's been almost too cold to show houses, below zero for days. Door handles are frozen what is a Realtor® to do.  A cruise to the Bahamas at this time of the year is an intriguing incentive. The buyer I have been working with reviewed a number of listings that I e-mailed to her. Sure enough a listing with a buyer and Realtor® incentive was on her list to see. The incentives were as follows: Buyer will receive a certificate for 6 months of house cleaning.

This well priced house was very attractive from the exterior. What would the interior be like? The sellers hav...
