Waitlist Forecast

Since this property may have a Section 8 Property Based Rental Assistance contract with rental assistance available to its residents, it is likely the property has a waiting list. Sometimes these waiting lists can be months or years long and may or may not be accepting new applicants. You should contact the property to verify.

Note: Affordable Housing Online has not confirmed the waiting list status directly with the property. This waiting list status forecast is based on our housing experts' knowledge of similar properties. You should always confirm this status directly with the property.

Casa Farnese offers affordable rents for persons 62 years or older. Some federally subsidized (Section 8 approved) apartments are available for those who qualify under the income limits set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the occupancy policy established by the sponsor. Monthly rent is based upon the resident's income in a formula specified by HUD. Non-subsidized apartments are rented at market rate to seniors 62 and over, most of whom are at 80% of median income or less.

Dave's Thoughts On Casa Farnese Apartments

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 Casa Farnese Apartments 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.
