What are the income requirements to rent one of your properties?
We typically require a minimum of 3x the monthly rent in W-2 income.
Do you work with evictions?
Although an eviction does not automatically disqualify you from renting one of our properties, it is typically very difficult to approve an applicant with an eviction on record.
Do you handle Section 8?
No, we have managed Section 8 in the past. Our decision to stop was based on actual experiences where the HACSB has not abided by their own published rules. HACSB is the epitome of a government organization gone bad.
