Section 8 Property Managers in Norfolk, VA

5 Replies

Hi Everyone,

My husband and I got a great property in Norfolk on auction. The duplex is in good condition and the rents were predicted at $750 per unit which would be a great COC return. However, the neighborhood is rough and we are having a really hard time attracting renters. The property manager continues to say that no one wants to live there because the area is sketchy. I understood this going in however, other property owners on the block had renters through Section 8. I have been asking my property manager to get the property approved but she seems to be dragging her feet or "still working on it" even though it has been 4 months now. Meanwhile, my property is sitting there. Does anyone have suggestions for property managers in the Hampton Roads Area that specialize in Section 8 and/or tenants in rougher neighborhoods in general?

Thanks,

Leigh
