Many fear what they don’t understand. That’s exactly why we put together this round table discussion with two other great CHA section 8 property managers. Listen in as we address the entire workflow from screening the applicants, to the move in, and everything that happens in between. Section 8 can be a great investment strategy, but it’s imperative you understand how it works...ESPECIALLY in a city like Chicago. If you learned something today, please leave us a review and share us with a friend. Enjoy the episode!
