GOsection8.com An innovative Rent Reasonableness solution & Landlord and Tenant “Marketplace”
Save staff time and increase agency productivity by allowing GOSection8.com to take care of your landlord listings. Direct your landlords to the website, and you can dramatically reduce support calls to your staff.
Any time your agency logs in, you will know exactly how many listings and comps you have. Comparables roll in continuously, and all information is updated in real time. From here, you can perform appraisals and generate RR certifications.
Select the property you would like to appraise. The form will auto-fill for properties that have already been listed.
Rented non-subsidized comparables are the red and black icons.
Active Listings are represented by pink number circles.
The subject property, and the comparison properties are automatically inserted into an easy to use appraisal form. The subject property is the subsidized unit. Comps 1, 2, & 3 are the non- subsidized units that have been selected from the rent reasonable database.
A rent reasonable certification will clearly display and adjust for all of HUD’s 9 rent reasonable factors. Further enhancing the rent reasonable certification is the inclusion of market activity made available by integrating data obtained from the listing service.
The RR certification includes pictures of the comp properties, as well as property owner contact information, assisting your agency in addressing the subjective “quality” factor, and allows an agency to better substantiate their assumptions. The inclusion of this information allows HUD a method to validate and verify an agency’s determinations.
The GOSection8.com listing service obtains all 9 of HUD’s required factors (location, size, type, age, housing services, maintenance, owner paid utilities, amenities & quality) up front, allowing your agency to make a more accurate and faster rent reasonable determination later.
