Good Neighbor Next Door Program:

If so, you may qualify for HUD's Good Neighbor Next Door Program which could

SAVE 50% off the purchase of your home!

What is the Good Neighbor Next Door Program?

  • The Good Neighbor Next Door program is specifically designed to provide a unique opportunity for law enforcement officers and teachers (pre-K through 12th grade) and firefighters/emergency medical technicians to purchase and occupy eligible HUD REO properties located in revitalization areas with a substantial incentive while contributing to community revitalization.

  • HUD will offer a 50% discount off the list price of the home and in return, you must commit to live in the property for 36 months as your sole residence.

  • Eligible borrowers must qualify for an FHA mortgage program - borrowers may be able to finance in all closing costs and pre-expenses with a cash investment of only $100.00 if the HUD REO Sales Contract indicates the property is eligible for this type of financing.


How does the program work

  • Check the listings for your state at The number of properties available is limited and the list of available properties changes weekly.

  • Contact Christina to submit your interest in purchasing a specific home.

  • You must meet the requirements for a law enforcement officer, teacher, firefighter or EMT and comply with HUD’s regulations for the program.

  • HUD requires you sign a second mortgage and note for the discount amount.  No interest or payments are required on this “silent second” provided that you fulfill the three-year occupancy requirement.  At the end of the three year period, the second mortgage is forgiven and the homeowner keeps all equity in the home.
