Landlords, list Rentals with Section 8

Landlords, Realtors, Investors are not Experts in Everything

Miami-Dade Public Housing Authority MDPHA

This is the main entrance for Miami-Dade County’s Public Housing Authority’s Section 8 office.

Landlords, Realtors, Investors are not experts in everything about real estate and derivative markets. A good friend and investment buddy, Luis Maqueira, called that he needed help. One of his clients wanted to rent a property and make it available for Section 8 Vouchers. He had no idea where to look or what to do.


Luis’ phone call gave us an idea for a blog posting! Why not just tell every landlord, real estate professional and Section 8 Voucher holders where find and list Section 8 Properties.

Section 8 Property Web Sites.

The following web sites allow landlords, real estate professionals and property management companies to post their properties for rent and Section 8 or Plan 8 Voucher Holders to search for rental properties that accept Section 8 Vouchers:

Advantages of Using Section 8.

As real estate investors and landlords, we love using Section 8 for several reasons:

Housing Quality Standards HQS Failure Points slide

Housing Quality Standards HQS Failure Points

  • Guaranteed Rent Payments. US Government checks Baby! If that bounces we are all in a heap of trouble.
  • Free Advertising – Can list your properties on all Section 8 web sites for FREE including video uploads!
  • Your tenant funnel becomes larger by making your rental property Section Eight eligible.
  • Landlords and property owners still maintains control of rental property.
  • Can use HUD’s Fair Market Rent FMR data base to determine monthly rental payments.
  • We listed our Housing Quality Standards HQS landlord self-inspection check list

There are many more advantages which are not listed but you get the idea! By using Section 8 as marketing strategy, landlords expand their internet footprint and increase tenant occupancy conversion rates. Landlords can keep their vacancy periods to a minimum therefore increasing their cash flows.
