Richard, you offered no useful insight on that one.
Now I'm going to commit the same offense and stereotype landlords in general.. Landlords tend to complain about the problems they have with all of their tenants. It is what they do. Especially when they are also grandparents. By definition, section *8 tenants are poor.
By definition, landlords are wealthier than section 8 tenants.
It is the tendency of many of us who are luckier than the poor to convince ourselves that our higher living standards are due to our own industriousness and admirable character rather than good fortune and circumstance.
But to answer Darlene's question: It is a very sensible business decision to lease out to Section 8* tenants.
You are much more likely to receive a rent check from the housing authority every month of the year than you will from an unsubsidized renter. (By the way - you will receive the market rate on section 8 leases)
The housing authority generally pays based on the number of bedrooms, not on the value of the rental property. So I would not put a luxury home with a swimming pool and tennis courts into the program.
I would put safe and clean standard apartments or houses into the program as long as the section 8 rate was close to or higher than I could charge unsubsidized tenants.
