Your Questions About Hud Apartments

March 26, 2012

Charles asks…

When looking at classified ads for apartments, many say “no HUD.” What does that mean?!?

Administrator answers:

HUD is short for Dept. Of Housing and Urban Development. They sponsor a plan called Section 8. Section 8 offers housing subsidies for lower income people. Some landlords will or will accept government subsidized clients in their units for whatever reasons. That is what that means.

Its a bit confusing not sure which is the address but yeah thanks in advance for all the help.

Administrator answers:

That is not the zip code for San Marcos. It is 78666. Possibly that address you have is just where the Job Corp’s mail goes.

If you are looking for an apartment near the job corp. You should just get on line and look up San Marcos apartment hunters just like all cities they have free services that will find you an apartment. Tell them what you want and ta da they will tell you if they can get it.

San Marcos is a college town so yes you will definitely find an apartment within 5mi, maybe not but they do have a bus system. And a great school (Go BOBCATS!). Good luck

Chris asks…

Is there any housing/apartments available in Houston where rent is based on income or sliding scale? (not HUD)?

I am a new mother of twins and am looking for SAFE inexpensive home for my family.

Administrator answers:

Nope. There is no such thing as safe AND inexpensive. Remember, everyone else wants to live in a safe place to, therefore the increased demand allows those places to rent at MUCH higher. Why would a landlord rent to you for $1000 per month when someone else would be willing to rent the same place for $1500 per month? Do you think that the landlord would eat $6000 per year out of kindness?

Mandy asks…

I am looking for low income apartments through HUD or Volunteers of America in the bay area of CA?

Administrator answers:

The only actual low income complex in the bay ares is in Dublin, the waiting list is several years though.

You need to go to Social services for you county and apply for section 8. They give you a voucher, then it is up to you to find a landlord willing at accept the voucher.
