What is A HUD Home Anyway???

You may have seen the signs on street corners and at neighborhood entrances announcing “HUD Home for Sale”.  These rather “governmental” looking signs often stir up curiosity and in many cases concern in the community.  With the tremendous volume of foreclosures in Gwinnett, these have been popping up everywhere!  Because of that, many people have asked me to explain, so here you go.

Be not afraid of the HUD home.  When people ask me “What is a HUD home?”, I often ask them what they think it is.  The answer I get most is section 8, government subsodized, low income or similar.  While I understand how people have come to think that, it is simply not true.  Are you ready??  Here it is…straight from HUD.

Township at Mulberry Park, Braselton, GA

Mulberry Park Entrance

Turn into the Mulberry Park entrance from HWY 211, stop and pick-up a good cup of coffee, or something for dinner, pass the beautiful shade tree in roundabout and you’re home.  The Township at Mulberry Park is situated at the crossroads of 4 counties to include: Barrow, Gwinnett, Hall and Jackson, yet still maintains that “off the beaten path” feel.    Nearly 500 single family homes and townhomes make up this mostly craftsman style community, with some developed lots still available.  Students attend one of the Winder/Barrow, Mill Creek, Jackson High School or Flowery Branch school clusters, according to the county of his/her address.
