Section8 Rental Rate

2 Replies

I am trying to be a new Section 8 landlord- in researching I found the rates paid. For a 3bd the website says $1074- our small county only had 2 homes for rent and they are listed for $650-

My question is how do you get the maximum rent? My #’s work great at their rate.

That rare is the total housing budget allowed - for rent plus utilities.  In my market I find I can only get about $250 below what is listed.  I wrote a blog about how the housing authority determines the rent and how you can ensure you get as much as you can.  Here's the link.
