Reviewing & Changing Bids
When an Asset Manager issues a counteroffer, that counteroffer is sent out to all previous bidders on the home. In addition, during the counteroffer period, the Asset Manager will consider any new bids made on the property, not just the counteroffers.
If your offer is counter-offered, you will be sent an automatic email from HUD Homestore. However, these emails are sent as a courtesy and should not be relied on for notification of a counteroffer, since email systems may block an email or send it to the Spam or Junk folder. The most reliable way to check for a counteroffer is to log in and manually check.
Checking for counteroffers after you log in: As a bidder, you can review all counteroffers by logging in, and, in the Review Your Bids screen, setting the Counter Offer drop-down (on the far right) to ‘Yes’ and clicking Search. This displays all bids that are counter-offered. When a bid is counter-offered, the original bid is canceled.
To place a counteroffer: Click the Confirmation Number for the bid. This displays the Bid Details screen. You will then see a Counter Offer Bid button that you can click to respond to the counteroffer. Much of the information cannot be changed on the counter offer form; so, if you need to change some of the buyer information, you can always submit a new bid rather than use the counteroffer to place your bid.
If you encounter an issue placing the counteroffer: Check to see if the home is listed on HUD Homestore. If you can’t find the home, contact the Asset Manager to see when the home will be on the site so that you can then place the counteroffer.
How can I see the status of bids for the property I made an offer on?
You can check the status of your offers by logging in to HUDHomestore.com. On the Review Your Bids page, click the Search button to view a list of your most recent offers and see their bid status.
What are the different bid statuses?
