I have a couple of houses that I would like to make available to Section 8 recipients, but I’m having a hard time reaching that market. Here, in Dallas, they are no longer accepting applications for Section 8, so I need to find some people who already receive Section 8 assistance. I’ve signed my house up the housing authorites website, but outside of that, I’m at a loss as of what to do to reach them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I have properties in the section 8 program. In my experience it usually takes about 4 weeks before you start getting steady responses after putting your property on the section 8 listing.
You may actually want to check the list yourself and see if the property is actually listed. Sometimes things get mis-placed within the administration.
Or you could place an ad in the local newspaper stating " property available section 8 ok". Never state the rent because thats negotiable with section 8.
I have had good sucess with the program it just takes a little patience but the peace of mind knowing you will receive section 8’s portion of the rent on time makes it worth while.
Thank you for your response! I’m troubled because my houses have been listed for 2 months now and I have not received any response. I wish I could check the listing online. I work full-time and it’s difficult to get to Dallas during their office hours and calling the housing authority is a joke.
