The Federal Housing Administration said that nonprofit organizations and owner-occupant buyers will have first dibs on foreclosed properties that get auctioned off through its Claims Without Conveyance of Title (CWCOT) program, specifically prioritizing these groups over investors.

For the first 30 days, a foreclosed property listed for sale can only be bid on by owner-occupant buyers, approved nonprofits, and government entities, the FHA announced last week. The administration added that these buyers would also enjoy an additional 60 days for conveyance from the date that the sales contract is ratified.
