HUD announced Monday that it will give Gulf Coast hurricane evacuees an opportunity to purchase 20,000 HUD-owned properties at a discount.

Families living in interim rental housing may purchase the homes they are currently occupying at a 10% discount off the fair market value. In addition, HUD will help tenants pay for property repairs with a escrow credit equal to 15% of the purchase price.

HUD will pay all reasonable and customary closing costs, up to 5% of the contract price. HUD will also pick up the tab for all real estate brokerage fee’s. The buyer must agree to occupy the property as a primary residence for at least 12 months.
