You need to understand how Section 8 works. Landlords & building owners need to qualify before they are allowed to accept Section 8 or any other government program. There are inspections and if anything needs to be done, the landlord needs to fix it. Because of the expense & intrusion, landlords are very quick to say Forget It! Also landlords are operating a business & know they can easily make a profit from a regular renter paying full price than somebody like you on Section 8. Section 8 pays about 75% of the regular rent and they force landlords notmtomacceptmanything higher. Mere fore, the landlords will lose money every month. ... more

On some level... I think everyone here is kind of right. $1M is a lot of money ... especially for some of the compromises we make in NY / Brooklyn. *But*, these neighborhoods are dynamic - they change. (Bushwick is a very appropriate example.) The somewhat tough reality is that you are paying premium for the future potential of a neighborhood. And people pay it because the probability is good that you'll be whole on your investment in some years. Nothing assured, but many folk (myself up until recently) have watched values continue to get away from them - thinking "gee, surely this is overvalued"... only to watch prices go higher while sitting on the sidelines.

On the other side, everyone's a little reluctant when markets soften. There really is no easy answer here. Assess the risk for yourself; try and understand probabilities as objectively as possible, and make a determination for yourself.

Multifamilies are an accessible entry point for many due to the income producing units that mitigate the financial responsibility... But you have to have a good attitude about being a responsive landlord.

First you need to decide if you are looking for a place to live in or if it is for an investment? Once decided, you will need to make sure your credit is good and then apply to see what the bank will lend you based on your credit if you are looking for financing. Start with this and then you can decide what you can afford. You can always contact me if you have any other questions in regards to looking for a property.

Since most are listed with a broker, consider working with an agent of your own; keep in mind that not all foreclosures are such great bargains, therefore don't overlook some traditional for sale as some may end up being a much better bargain... ... more
