The best and safest area to rent is always a concern of most investors. Of course you want the most ROI. As you look into areas to buy, look at the rental history for the area as well. Check classifieds and internet and more. Areas that are more prone to section 8 are can be select ably desired if you know how to handle a sec 8 rental. Also being approved for sec 8 is also a concern. Sec 8 are not for the faint of heart but not a hard knowledge to endeavor or to conquer as an expert so you will profit from it.
In a sec 8 rental area you may not want to rent to anything but a sec 8 qualified applicants. If you do not want to rent to sec 8 then I suggest staying away from those areas that are more prone to sec 8 applicants. However as an investor in Camden City I have made several rental properties profitable without being sec 8 qualified. My qualification standards for rentals are mostly the same as sec 8 standard except no government backing or propaganda.
