how to have landlords be interested in renting their houses to housing (sec 8) after having bad experiences with previouse tenants?

Asked by Roba Abushaaban, Evergreen, San Jose, CA Tue Jun 1, 2010

I have sec 8, been looking in craigs list since January, gave up in February, and now back into looking for a house in 95135. Mostly either too far from EVC, more than a mile away, or won't give to sec 8? what should I do?

Landlords generally either love or hate Section 8 tenants. You're apparently running into the latter.

What you have to do is show them: (1) the benefits of Section 8 from their standpoint, and (2) that you'll be a model tenant.
