All three states have great opportunities and all have their advantages and disadvantages. The most important factor is whether of not the investment makes sense to you, and as you mentioned it is all about the numbers.

Taxes and getting a TIN (Tax Identification Number) will be important roll as well when using the property as an investment. Here is a link to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) explaining that in greater detail:,,id=129631,00.html

If I can suggest you may want to find a realtor in each state and see what they can find for you as investments in those states and then determine if it makes sense to you, but please let the other agents know what you are looking to achieve because all agents work strictly on commission and it needs to be disclosed to them so they are aware of the situation.

I'm currently in central Florida and if you interested in looking for investment properties in the Orlando and surrounding areas I would be more than happy to help out in any way I can. I can also recommend other agents in those two states if you wish. I appreciate the opportunity and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sorry to hear all this has happened . I am not from Philadelphia so I am not to sure of the rent there, but $100.00 a month does not sound like it is posible. Maybe you can get a roommate or maybe you can rent out a room or two from someone. HOPE ALL WORKS OUT FOR YOU ... more

A good resource to check is "Get There First" at Once you find a home that you like that's in their inventory, they will assist you with utilizing your Section 8 voucher. They have a comprehensive list of homes availble. Good luck!

Bob Thomas answered:
One key factor is the Return on Investment (ROI). All good investors look at this along with Management fees, taxes, insurance vacancy rate, maintenance, repairs and reserves for major improvements. As with all good investments location is key, so do your research.

Remember if you are financing the investment and the single family home becomes vacant you have no money coming in. As with the 4-plex with one vacancy and you should still be able to have enough cash flow to cover most of your expenses.

If this is going to be a long term investment you might want to also look at what any future value may be realized. It’s good that the 4-plex is currently rented. $600-$800 is about right depending on condition. The same goes for the single family home. Remeber

You are on the right track just do a bit more homework.

All the best!

I would need additional information to let you know if there are any homes available in those communities that offer section 8. What are you looking for in a rental? How much do you want to spend monthly? Once I know these I can do a search for you and let you know what's available.

Dear Chris,
I specialize in REO and short sales and I have a lot of clients searching in the same price range for investment purposes. Considering the price range your best option is Homestead (South Miami) where with a little hunting you can purchase 2-3 BR property for 40-45k. Additional expenses you have to consider are: association fee (anywhere between $150-300/monthly), taxes (anywhere between $800-2,500 yearly), and insurance. If you are a cash buyer it's almost a hassle free transaction. Please contact me for more details and I will be happy to assist you with your property search.

Hello future buyer,

I admire your aggressive stand at agency commissions. However be careful what you are asking for. If an agent cannot defend and negotiate their own fees, how well are they going to negotiate for you?

Many many things can go wrong even after an agreement of sale has been accepted. (I just published an article on my blog that you may want to check out Just make sure you have an agent who is knowledgeable and ethical.

Good luck.

John Walin answered:
Vacant is not a defined MLS parameter, rent with option to buy is. If a home is vacant usually it is under foreclosure/short sale and bank wont go along with a more complex transaction. Plenty of rentals out there, not many incentives for a seller to lock in a price today because you have a credit problem with getting a mortgage now. ... more

Section 8 is a government approved, subsidy, renters assistance program.
If you do not know this, then you are not approved for it.
Trulia does not rent houses or apartments; some are listed as an advertisement, much the same as a newspaper ad.
So, the answer is NO, Trulia does not accept Section 8.
