@Latte31 - I know that a lot of landlords really like the section 8 program of subsidized housing because the government pays a huge percentage of the rent while the renter only has to come up with a fraction of the rental payments. This makes rent collection easy and pretty predictable.
In addition, landlords get to have steady renters and have few vacancies because people in these programs tend to stay in subsidized housing for a while. My mother in law had a small multiunit building and she accepted section 8 renters. She said she loved it because she never had a problem collecting rent and the renters were so happy to live in the building that they never gave her a problem.
