When people hear the term HUD house, many think of a trashed home somewhere in a rental area in the inner city. If this is you, keep reading! This article will change your perception of HUD homes.

I have been marketing Columbus HUD homes for more than 2 years. When it comes to foreclosure properties, HUD homes are the “Cadillac”. That’s not because they are owned by the government (just like Cadillac’s parent company General Motors), but because they are typically in excellent condition and almost ready to move in.

You will find that most HUD homes are in the suburbs. Many home builders used to sell their new built subdivisions with FHA loans. Unfortunately, quite a few of them were lost to foreclosure and were taken over by HUD.

The Columbus OH home for sale I want to point out today is located at 395 Alonzo Palmer Drive in Pataskala. It is the most expensive HUD listing I saw in more than a year. The asking price is $195,000 and it is reserved for owner occupant buyers till Sunday, April 4, 2010.

This home offers many special features, such as a 3 car garage, an island kitchen, a huge loft, a wooden deck in the back and a pond view! This 3100 sqft Beazer built home is located in the “Settlement at Pataskala” subdivision, off East Broad Street, just west of Hazelton-Etna Rd SW.

This area is served by Southwestern Licking Schools. You can learn more about the City of Pataskala at their official website or on Zillow.
