Hello,

Others have already posted the obvious pros and cons associated with being a landlord.

Regarding your rights as a landlord, you should become educated on the tenant/landlord regulations for your community and state regulations. In FL there is a large section of state statutes governing leases, tenant rights, notifications required by landlords, etc. Texas appears to have similar statutes. https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/consumer/tenants.shtml

You should also become familiar with federal fair housing laws before you advertise a rental, start the interview process with prospective tenants.

Once you have the above information it should be easier for you to make a decision on becoming a landlord or not.

Regards,

The best thing for you to do is to work exclusively with a Realtor. They will have access to showing you properties but you must be pre-approved first. Most listing agents won't show you if you are not pre-approved, plus if you like the house you need to represented. ... more

Pick any 1 Realtor and work with them only. Also, make sure they have section 8 experience. Many do not and many do not work section 8 housing. Finding section 8 housing is hard and time consuming so make sure your loyal to your Realtor.
