I might know a lady who can answer your questions. She was just explaining me last week how it works, she represent the special gov programs where they pay your down payment, closing costs. You need to qualify. Shoot me email and I'll forward you her contact information.

No I do not believe you can do that. The reason is that most banks will want proof that this income will go for at least three years.

Section 8 folks are already considered "pieces of craps" expecting others in the society to subsidised their rental shelter over their's and families heads. Why do you even have the
gall to ask if you can use your welfare shelter vouchers to buy house? Off course, you
missed the opportunity to be like those "liar loans" borrowers to cheat taxpayers to
get loans from banks that finally sold them to Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac that the
taxpayers have to bail them out!

To the best of my knowledge Section 8 is only for rentals, not for the purchase of a home.

I could be mistaking , but I am not aware of a section 8 purchase program. I am pretty sure it only applies to rentals.
