Section 8 and affordable apts offer list with phones.

Using HousingWorks.net search criteria  “Section 8 or no Sec 8, Wait List, 1BR, Zip Codes within 30 miles of the South End, Voucher discount housing and other Affordable Housing status categories,” a report showing  687 property management contacts as of April 10, 2018 can be viewed here on Smallwall.net sourced from the Boston based HousingWorks database online.

The report is a search helper. It is NOT the solution to everyone’s quest for affordable housing.

A theory we have is that equal amounts of affordable rentals stock exists in unknowable  places— unknowable to the internet and government data sources, unknowable to housing advocates  and Craigslist. Time will tell if we are right.

Here’s what happened when I called the first four on the list.

1st on the list — RTH shows  Waitlist is open. An answering service takes a message. ( update) They reliably us called back today. Found out they hold properties for rent based incomes in the Fenway, Huntington  Ave and Brigham Circle area.  No vacancy today, WaitList is encouraged.

2nd— The One Greenway listed office answered and directed  me to a web site where an affordable apartment lottery  is going to happen soon at 450 Cambridge  Street. The call was worth it,

3rd on the list — Kendall Company answered, said a vacancy is immediately avail. Said appointments  are being taken now for a  2 BR for $3,400 rent.  When  I asked about Affordable they said “absolutely have this—go to the Cambridge Housing Authority and apply to waitlist.” So this is a Mahoney Properties operation who are major processors of income restricted and market rate units. So that’s why their waitlist go to the HAs. They are contracted by Housing Authorities to hold sales and lotteries.

If a waitlist is held by a private owner, not the HA, your wait will likely be shorter.

Tip: Depending on your situation, it could take from 1 month to 5 years to get an offer by waitlist.

Learn if you qualify to apply as a person with Special Needs Categories such as: Veterans, Seniors, homeless, battered women, disabled/handicapped or other. There are over 25 classifications of applicant categories.

The 4th listed  contact number was disconnected.
