Kathy Burgre…, Home Owner in Westchester, NY
Wed Feb 3, 2016
Kathy Burgreen answered:
The reason it's difficult is because landlords, owners and property managers do not need to accept Section 8 if they don't want to. To them it's much cheaper and easier to find tenants who can pay full price for the apartment or house. Section 8 does not pay the full market price - it pays about 70% of the regular rent. You would need to pay the other 30% for rent. Since you work, if you can convince a landlord or owner that you will pay the additional 30% rent, I'm sure you will find a home quickly. However, let me guess - with 3 kids, you don't have the money to pay 30% extra rent.

Another issue is Section 8 demands that the apartment or house be livable and up to par with Section 8 standards. Again, landlords, owners & property managers don't want to spend extra money to meet the requirements for Section 8. Too expensive. So Section 8 will deny them.

As for realtors or agents, they refuse to work with people on vouchers or programs. Reason is the money that Section 8 or other programs pay is not enough for the work involved. Realtors are self employed and they make more money with buyers and sellers than renters. So agents work where the money is - not with renters or people on Section 8.

You made a bad decision having 3 kids. Learn to save money and improve your credit. Also get off of Section 8.

Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, they are not real estate companies and used for advertising purposes; the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.
