Yes I know it's difficult and yes, realtors will ignore you. You need to understand that property management companies and landlords are operating a business. Therefore, they want tenants who can pay full market rent which is more than what Section 8 pays.

Example: a 2 bedroom in Brooklyn rents for $4,000./month. Section 8 pays $1268./month. Who will pay the difference of $2,732./month to the landlord? You don't have the money to pay. Landlords are not going to take a loss and lose $2,732./month to a tenant with Section 8. They will just reject you and wait for a tenant who can afford $4,000./month. This is the landlord's profit. Just because you have Section 8 doesn't mean the landlords have to accept it. They can take Section 8 but they also want you to pay $2,732,/month extra. Oh and Section 8 refuses their clients to pay a penny extra - part of the rules.

As for realtors - yes Section 8 will pay their commission. BUT the commission paid is very small and realtors in NYC can earn much more working with buyers and sellers and even high cost renters. For the time involved and the expenses, working with Section 8 clients is not worth it. There is no money to be made.

if there is no fee - do not worry it is in the price of the rental.
Someone must pay the realtor?

Bad credit doesn't automatically mean you can't rent a property. Surely landlords not very happy about bad credit score or broken lease, but not only you go through this problem. Some owners might still see a good prospects for you. Try to search property online. I personally like Rentberry rental service. ... more
