How difficult is it to purchase a HUD home?My fiance and I found a home that happens to be a previous HUD home. We made an offer and they countered the very next day. We really wanted the home and their counter was practical so we submitted another offer that was a little more than they said was their limit with the condition that they pay closing costs. Now we haven't heard back from them, and it has been a week. How long can they just leave us hanging without communicating further? Did we do something wrong all communication has been done through our realtor. We are first-time home buyers and we got pre-approved and everything, but we feel like we did something wrong. How long should we wait for a response?September 15 2013 - Kokomo00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
