Free Houses Plus Cash to Fix Them

Well, maybe they are not free, but they can cost you as little as a few hundred dollars a month. And maybe they are not in good shape, but many of the programs will also offer you a low interest loan to fix-up the house. Some states refer to the program as an Urban Homesteading Act. The idea of the program is that the government gets you a home for next to nothing and you agree to live there for a certain number of years. Minnesota has a program. Baltimore had a very active program for many years. Davenport, Iowa purchases
homes, completely rehabs them, and then offers the houses in a lottery each May. You must get a mortgage, but your monthly payments are under $400 a month for a completely rebuilt house! There are some states, like Alaska, that still offer wilderness land for homesteading.
Because the houses are so cheap, there is usually a lottery for eligible buyers. Contact your city government, your county government and your local community development office to learn about local programs. You can also contact your state housing office.
