The best way to find out the answer to your question is to first find a home you are interested in renting and then notify the housing authority. They will then inspect the home to see if it qualifies under their guidelines. Some landlords may not be familiar with this program and if they are not currently on the program their rental will need to get approved prior to any contact with the housing authority. Note: any rental property can go into the program if it meets the housing authority criteria. Go see some rentals and ask them if they accept section 8 housing.

All the best,
Gary Geer

First I would recommend that you work with a Realtor that can give you specific information as it regards to this particular property and your local market.
But, essentially what the bank is going to do (with your offer or any other offers) is to get a 3rd party "price opinion or appraisal" to make sure that whatever offers they are considering, the property is being sold at a comparable market price.
In effect, they are going to want to make sure that the bank is losing as little as possible.
I have seen short sales sell at $10,000 below asking price, and I have seen them sell at or above asking price.
There is no "standard percentage".

Hope this helps. Good Luck

Ashley, short sale simply means that the home is being offered for sale at a price that is below the balance of what is owed on the outstanding mortgage(s) of the current owner. That does not however mean that the sale of the home will be accepted as the mortgage holder(s) has the final say as to how much they are willing to accept for the property. So far as your offer you should seek out a good local buyer's agent and review recent sales of homes in the area comparable to the one of your interest. If you have any interest in trying to purchase a home via a short sale be sure that you have a Realtor experienced in short sales and a Real Estate attorney helping you and guiding you through the process as it is a complicated one and you need to understand your risks. ... more
