I'm really confused about Section 8 rents. The chart I downloaded from
their website says the max rent for a 3 bedroom is $911, but my potential
tenants and I are getting conflicting information about how much we can
charge for a 3 bedroom house.

The person I just spoke with at Section 8 said the max for 3 bedrooms is
$610 if the tenant pays all utilities.

One potential tenant called and was told the rent amount will depend on
how nice the house is. Another potential tenant was told they'd pay up
to $660 due to her income. I already have a section 8 tenant in a 3 bd house
who pays $685.

Many of my potential tenants have a set amount they are responsible for
regardless of the rent, or Section 8 pays 100%.

How does it really work?
