Do you have any other Section 8’s?
Are they all as rosie?
I’m starting to look into Section 8 as an option for rentals I acquire.
About an hour ago I got off the phone with a fellow apartment association member who said they actually do the screening for Section 8 for the CITY of Milwaukee (not county or suburbs), and this persons take on Section 8 is…You have to realize you are dealing with a “lower” end renter, someone that for the most part will not follow the rules, someone that usually keeps a messy house, and lets others (boyfriend, etc.) stay there as well. Also mentioned as well was is if tenants are screened properly, Section 8 or not, then you will be a step ahead and may not have as many of the problems metioned above.
I guess after owning week-to-week rooming houses, it’s still a step or two up!
Hope Hal chimes in on this.
