    Default Low income housing

    All I know is what a friend told me. There is Section 8 which is, the rent is based on your income.Check with the county where you live, some cities also have their own Section 8. There is usually a waiting list (she waited 2 weeks) Good luck.

    Default Low income housing

    I live in Washington and there is several brand new duplexes in town that have remained empty for ages. I have seen ads on the conveneince stores in town for people to apply. They cant seem to fill them. We have alot of migrant workers in town so that is what they were built for initially but they still arent full so they have opened it up to any low income....I cannot imagine why they are not full. they are nice and have the nicest playground in town.

    Default Low income housing

    I have lived in low income housing before. Many times your utilities

    like gas and electric are included with the percentage of rent. The

    downside is few low income housing units allow pets and you are not

    allowed guests except for a couple weeks a year. Another thing to think

    about is that they are hard to get in and you have to put up with

    monthly house inspections. This is to make sure you are keeping the

    house or apt clean and have no forbidden pets or guests. If you do an

    eviction will surely follow. Finally, one more reason I would not go

    this route again is that often low income housing is located in

    unfavorable sections of town and you are going to live around the

    desperately poor who include many trouble makers. Low income housing

    sounds great, but it is little more than concentration camps for the

    poor. This is why I live in a 21 foot camper in an RV park rather than

    a 2 bedroom house in a public housing unit. I almost forgot, they

    include ALL forms of income like tax returns, when figuring your rent

    and you are only allowed one or two vehicles and if you have things

    like a boat or camper or sometimes even computers (New York) then these

    count against you as well. Just food for thought.

    Wow that sounds incredibly high to me. We don't live in low income housing but there is NO WAY we could afford to pay 1/3 of our gross income for rent!

    What is the max amount of what you take home,(net I guess?) should go to your mortgage or rent?
