How does HUD determine the list price of a HUD Home?

List Price is the “asking price” of a Property based on Market Value, as determined by one or more evaluation tools, such as an appraisal, Brokers Price Opinion, or Automated Valuation Model.
The Asset Manager (AM) will monitor assigned transactions to ensure that Properties are valued and sold in a manner in accordance with market conditions.
For additional information please contact the Asset Manager with jurisdiction over the property.  To locate contact information for the Asset Manager please visit the HUD Homestore website at and click “Help” in the gray tool bar.
