Re: Section Eight Tenant

Depends on the size of the rental. I would not rent to "baby-mills", those women who have children younger than the number of years they have been on welfare or Section 8; these women will have multiple men moving in and out in violation of the S8 rules, and those men will be shiftless and worthless, except to crowd up your property. I would not rent to 2nd or 3rd generation S8 recipients; they will move instead of cleaning house. The best S8 tenant is an older person on a fixed income such as SSI or Disability; those folks will understand the value of a safe comfortable semi-permanent home so they will take care of your rental and they will typically have fewer unexpected expenses to interfere with paying rent. I have had a number of each, baby-mills and seniors, and I much prefer the latter. If you have a 3-bedroom rental, I would not accept S8 at all.
