Yes, you do have to close the deal completely but it doesn’t matter where the money comes from. You don’t need your own financing. You could pay all cash if you have the money available.
When you do a double closing you are in effect paying all cash because the 2nd buyer is paying all cash to you and then you are paying it to HUD. This all happens basically back-to-back. All HUD and VA as well as most REOs from banks require a double closing.
Double closings happen all the time with HUDs. Your agent is misinformed.
