Back on AGAIN!!!! NEW price $45,000 Bid deadline is June 23th, 2009 for owner occupant, the 24th for investors.

SOLD AGAIN 5-6-09 for the last time $52,392

SOLD for $66,950 just a few weeks ago but is NOW back on the market for $50,000. In the town of Onondaga within the Marcellus school system, unpretentiously nestled on a half acre is an example of what HUD homes are known for, “A Great Deal” This home has a list of improvements from 2002 which include: plumbing, electrical, carpeting and flooring, interior/exterior paint, entry doors and windows, new furnace and hot water tank with a large shed/barn all in a 4 bedroom 2 full bath 1110 sqft. home. Public water and a septic system before you ask. The property is assessed for $98,500. HUD’s list price is $50,000.  $45,000

But wait, before you think about calling any Realtor, consider this. I’ve seen it time and time again, unsuspecting buyers placing and winning bids on HUD homes only to see their dreams dashed and lose the house. It’s not their fault. Most Realtors are unfamilar with all of HUD’s confusing rules and regulations. Financing a HUD home is key and not every realtor knows how to do it. Usually in 2 weeks after winning the bid I see that same property relisted on HUD’s website like today. Experience here is the key to success and with over 260 happy HUD customers over 20 years I can do the same for you. I specialize in HUD homes.

If this home sounds good to you, here are the steps to give you the best chance of scoring this property. Your first step is to click here for directions. Address is 4692 Beef Street off of Howlett Hill Rd. Your next step is to drive by the property. Step 3 is to call me at 315-952-2671 where I’ll go over steps 4 and 5. Timing is critical so don’t hesitate. And don’t feel like everyone is going to do this, many look, several drive by and few actually bid. John Adolfi 315-952-2671

Fulton HUD $42,000 Slashed to $37,800

HUD Home | Comments Off on Fulton HUD $42,000 Slashed to $37,800


168 West 5th St. South in the City of Fulton WAS NOT remarkable until today June 12th.  The home is in fair to good condition. Three bedrooms and one full bath inside its 1,192 sq. ft. 2 story frame. A shed instead of a garage on a 55’x132′ lot all told makes this home VERY average. The assessed value of $55,700 and the fact it sold in a great market for $55,000 in 2005 still makes me yawn.  HUD just lowered their asking price of $42,000 to $37,800 and made me want to re-write this blog. As I let my imagination run wild with what the ultimate selling price might be compelled me blog this property.  A magic number that will tickle anyone desiring to live in an “average” home in the former “City with a future”.  Contact me for a tour.  Bid deadline is this coming Tuesday the 16th for owner occupants and then the hungry investors can gooble this one up on the 17th of June. Bank pre-approvals are a must.  DIRECTIONS

HUD Home | Comments Off on East Syracuse, NY HUD Home $51,300

SOLD-Back on back off and back on again.  These HUD homes are sometimes like a ping-pong game.  Problem is realtors and buyers are sometimes uninformed and underprepared to travel HUD’s gauntlet. And as a result find that the bank financing is not in place and HUD has to pass on that buyer and place the property back on the market.

This East Syracuse HUD home is a modest size 2 bedroom 850 sq. ft. ranch with a full basement and a two car garage on a 62’x 174′ yard. Tax assessment is $81,800.  Sold to the previous owner in 1999 for $60,000. HUD’s asking prioce is $51,300.

Those looking to buy and live in it should get a 203k FHA streamline loan unless you are paying cash.  Bid deadline is Tuesday 26th May.  Contact me asap for more info.  John Adolfi 315-952-2671. DIRECTIONS    303 Sunset Dr. East Syracuse, NY 13057.

HUD Home | Comments Off on Jefferson Co. Clayton, NY 3BR Ranch HUD home $98,000

SOLD -so low it made me cry. Wow!  An assessed value of $165,000 and HUD’s original list and appraised “as-is” value was $140,000 and HUD is asking now only $98,000??  What is the catch?  After reading the property condition disclosure (e-mailed upon request) provided by HUD it seems there is no catch but worn carpets.   What an awesome home for a great price.    This property consists of a 1,572 sq.ft. Ranch built in 1958 on a full basement.  The lot size is 150’x267′ and located about a 1000′ from the St. Lawrence River just 5 miles east of Clayton. DIRECTIONS  Inside you’ll find three bedrooms and two full baths, oil furnace, well and septic, finished basement, frig, stove,dishwasher and garage.  

Before you pick up the phone and call any realtor, my experience from previous customers and real estate agents have both confessed that realtors don’t not want to sell or don’t know how to HUD homes. To see this home or find out more info  please contact me on my cell 315-952-2671. My name is John Adolfi and I’ve sold over 255 HUD homes and I love them

Constantia, N.Y. 2 Family HUD Home $31,000

HUD Home | Comments Off on Constantia, N.Y. 2 Family HUD Home $31,000

SOLD-Ok so I had to go north of Oneida lake anyhow and passed by this HUD and gandered in for a look.  It struck me immediately that it has 3 different roofs, in decending order of condition, metal, black asphalt and on the rear a red old asphalt. The interior sprawls with its forced two apt. layout and was at one time a single family home and could be again.  The condition is fair to poor. You could “clean it up” for several thousand and re-rent it or move in.  Or you could go the next step by gutting it and remodeling the entire home for a guestimated $20k-$40k depending on who does the work, you or hire it out.   Assessed value is $59,600 with a lot size of 46’x170′ and it appears the property next door and this property have been sharing part of a driveway for decades. The driveway splits towards the back for plenty of parking in the rear.  Four total bedrooms and 2 baths. Two heating units and two electrical.   Bidding is open for both for investors and owner occupants.  Asking price is $31,000.  DIRECTIONS
