The Federal Housing Administration (FHA), an organizational unit within HUD, administers the single-family mortgage insurance program. FHA insures approved lenders against the risk of loss on loans they finance for the purchase, and in some instances rehabilitation, of single-family homes. In the event of a default on an FHA insured loan, the lender acquires title to the property by foreclosure, a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, or other acquisition method, files a claim for insurance benefits and conveys the property to HUD. As a result of acquisitions through the mortgage insurance program and other programs, HUD has a need to manage and sell a sizable inventory of foreclosed single-family homes in a manner that promotes home ownership, preserves communities, and maximizes return to the FHA insurance funds. HUD is the largest single seller of real estate in the US.
HUD has identified five primary objectives for its FSMs which are to insure: 1) HUD Property Inspection Report (HPIR) and ongoing inspection of properties are performed and all documents are complete, accurate and submitted in a timely manner; 2) Insure the security of the properties and debris are removed timely; 3) Perform cosmetic enhancement/repairs within established timelines; 4) Investigate and make payment of Home Owners Association and utility fees prior to scheduled closing dates; and 5) Perform on-going maintenance of real properties and track disposition activity from conveyance to sale.
