Daniel asks…

How do you go about applying for Hud homes/apartments in Texas?

I do not make enough money to buy a house or really rent an apartment and still be able to pay a car payment. I know there are programs for people like me, I just do not know how to find and apply for them. I work full-time and just would like to pay my bills and still go to school-any help?

Administrator answers:

Contact Lonnie Stapp at He puts out a list of HUD homes in the Houston area every week. He’s a great old dude and will gladely answer any questions you might have. He has a great reference web site where you can find all kinds of information. If you don’t see what you’re looking for then drop him a line. He will definately write you back and lead you in the right direction. I bought my patio home off a list that came to my e-mail once a week. It only cost $1,000 down when I put in the bid and another $500 at closing (3% of selling price) with no closing costs (they were rolled into the loan). Also, I went through Countrywide for my mortgage. There are all kinds of programs out there to help low income people get into homes.

Good Luck!!!

Donna asks…

Section 8 or HUD apartments?

I am a single mother struggling to find an apartment. I read that the waiting list is so long for section 8 that you can not even sign up anymore. I found an apartment complex that has HUD apartments available in a few months. Will i be able to rent those and have a lower rate even if im not on sectoin 8 or whatever? Im really confused about all this and need help please!

Administrator answers:

No, the HUD apartments are the section 8 apartments, you need a section 8 voucher to rent those.

You would have to pay fair market rent for them, just like any one else. No discounts.
