FHA REVITALIZATION AREA SALES PROGRAMS

Revitalization Areas are HUD-designated geographic areas authorized by Congress under provisions of the National Housing Act. Revitalization Areas are intended to promote "the revitalization, through expanded homeownership opportunities, of revitalization areas."

The criteria for designating an area as a Revitalization Area relate to:

  1. Household Income,
  2. Homeownership Rate, and
  3. FHA-insured mortgage foreclosure activity.

HUD-owned single family properties located in a Revitalization Area are eligible for discounted sale through special programs, including:

 -  Asset Control Area (ACA): Foreclosed properties conveyed back to FHA that are located in a designated ACA are first offered for sale to an ACA participant. Under the ACA Program, state, county and local units of government, as well as approved nonprofit organizations may enter into a two-year contract with HUD requiring HUD to first make FHA properties located in an ACA exclusively available for sale to the ACA participant. ACA properties with an appraised value of $25,000 or less may be purchased for $100; all other properties sold under the ACA Program are offered for sale at a minimum discount of 50 percent of the appraised property value.

 -  Good Neighbor Next Door (GNND): Under GNND, HUD offers certain single family properties for sale to police officers, teachers, fire fighters, and emergency medical technicians at 50 percent off of the list price.

HUD's Single Family Home Locator displays maps of REO properties and special programs such as Revitalization Areas.  There are many revitalization areas across the country. HUD is always working with localities to designate new areas. For information on Revitalization Area Evaluation Criteria, please see Housing Notice 11-02.

Contact the FHA Resource Center 
to discuss designating a Revitalization Area in your community. For more information about purchasing HUD Homes through FHA's Revitalization Area programs, contact your local, state or regional Management and Marketing (M&M) contractor.

I would like to thank Laura Hepworth for an excellent job during the sales process, as I am a local investor and it is nice to work with investor friendly brokers, who understand the business. I would recommend Laura to anyone looking for a smooth transaction. Scott
A few years ago, Laura was a licensed real estate agent with my real estate company and I was her Broker-in-charge --- I always found Laura to be honest, dependable and trustworthy as well as knowledgeable. I would recommend Laura as a real estate professional as well as a nice person. Liz Loadholt Chief Operating Officer AgentOwned Realty Liz Loadholt
Laura is the epitome of what I look for in a real estate broker. Her charisma and market knowledge is only out done by her hard work and willingness to go above and beyond for her clients. She really has her thumb on the pulse of the Palm Beach County single-family market. James
I'm extremely happy to be in a position to give testimonial to the professionalism and competence of Laura Hepworth. For many months, I agonized over the decision of selling my property in Port St. Lucie. Once I made the decision the rest was easy. Laura guided me through the entire process and the fact that I was living outside the state of Florida made no difference. Every document was thoroughly explained in a simple and concise manner. Laura is a consummate professional, with vast knowledge in the field of real estate. She is competent, honest and stood by me from the beginning to the end. If I should ever conduct another real estate transaction in the state of Florida, I will will not do it without the advice and guidance of Laura Hepworth..............Thank you Laura! Sincerely, Melvon Herbert Melvon Herbert
