HUD1 software worth it? If so, which one? - Posted by Downriver Brian

Working on this short sale deal has taught me that my Title company cannot be trusted to get me a estimated HUD1 in any reasonable period of time.

Is it worth buying a HUD1 program so that I can take care of it myself?

If so, which program do you recommend?

I found a great piece of software free… - Posted by Downriver Brian

I actually found a great HUD1 program online. It’s free for the basic version, and $99 for a version with a billion extra forms and addons. I just need the basic version. It’s at http://www.puritas-springs.com/products/whud.htm

I like this better than the “fill in the blank” resources because it does all the calculations for me (even calculates the prorations so I don’t have to) and I can save the files. Sweet. I also didn’t have to enter any info to get the download.

Only problem is that my title company has a bunch of extra lines for fees. (doc prep, wire fee, overnigh fee, blah blah blah) so I need lines 1111 through 1118 but they arn’t there and if it’s customizeable, I don’t see how.
Oh well…I just need it to make estimated HUD1s for the short sale department anyway…and I doubt $60 difference for overnight fees is going to break the deal at the closing table.

Get a fillable HUD-1 form FREE from Bronchick’s site… It will work fine for you needs. You just have to register your email address, but no cost.

NO. Fill one out by hand. the lender will accept it. Don’t spend the $300 or so. Waste of money. My opinion, worth what you just paid for it.
