Dave's Thoughts On Swartzberg House

This property participates in the Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance program meaning the rent for many, if not all, units is based on a tenant's income. You would not pay more than 30% of your income for rent. To qualify, you must earn 50% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI), which you can find on this page’s income chart. Also, project-based Section 8 properties tend to have longer waiting lists, with some with waiting lists going out for years. This property was also financed through a HUD-insured private mortgage meaning the owner has oversight from both a private bank and HUD. This usually means Swartzberg House is kept in good condition. Since this property has a project-based Section 8 contract, you won't need a Section 8 voucher to live here. If you have a voucher, you may have to give it up to live here.
