Apartments that are family affordable to rent.

Apartments should be affordable to rent. Down south, they are.

Government housing policy sets the price for how  much a studio or 1-4BR apartment will rent for in Massachusetts and to whom, when the unit has been designated as an affordable rental or place to buy.

How come Boston’s  Black-owned newspaper is not a preferred source for real estate brokers to advertise market rate property when the hottest real estate sales action is in  Roxbury?

Why does the  Boston Globe newspaper ” Homes For Sale” advertisement section show  properties on sale in Black populated neighborhoods but the Black-owned Bay State Banner newspaper does not get these ad orders.

How come  the market acts that way?

For affordable property  renters and buyers, the Black-owned newspaper has listings the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald mass market papers do not have.

Let’s take a look at some.

Are you eligible for an Affordable Apartment. Yes, you probably are. Here’s why.

Income Limits for Affordable housing

The eligible individual or household who qualifies to receive massive discounts when renting apartments in Massachusetts is not so hard to find. That person is probably you. Here’s why.  Your Income Matters.  The Federal Housing and Urban Development Department established income guidelines for every region of the United States. These regulations are used to fix rental prices to what properties rent and sell for.   The rules created an Income Eligibility Chart. In most of Massachusetts and the Metro Boston area, a household of one with an income between $20,000 and  $68,000 to is eligibile for most offers. The numbers go up when you have more than one person in your household.

Winners are emerging in Boston’s hot affordable housing lottery scene and luck is a cool operator.

Winners are emerging in affordable housing lottery.

Draw a Black line around the Jackson Square Jamaica Plain area to a part of the South End, and from there into Uphams Corner and you would have encircled more than 100 reduced rent new apartments being offered to people seeking affordable housing income restricted rents  in Boston recently.

The demand for a shaved rent or mortgage deal is constant. It took a while for the City of Boston to kick into fairly high gear getting the word out about them. They probably have over 100,000 people on an email list getting the clicks when there is something to announce. We told you about their web site, right?

Now HousingWorks.net – does a good job getting subsidized offers out to people.  HW covers the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Housingworks doesn’t work direct with renters. No, they train advocates who in turn have access to an automated system that if you personally use it through an advocate, you can place one HousingWorks application into the System and have it automatically add your name to wait list at subsidized locations across the state.  Imagine that. One click and you go Poof! onto the waiting list of 10 units without licking a stamp.

These application opportunities require luck and patience for most. Of course, there are lottery offer situations where your special condition, age, or circumstance gets your number bumped up higher on the list than another persons.  PREFERENCES are at work here.

It is all about the numbers.

Talked to a guy the day the Tall Ships were in town. He works at a Capital One coffee shop. He entered a lottery in Chelsea for one of a limited number of condos in a particular building.  He won! There were 83 applicants in that resale contest.  I think he told me 11 were winners.

See there you have it. Anyone can be a winner.

And who among us wouldn’t clap for a barista to win.

See who won this Mass Lottery,
