But even if I did take on commercial work the LAST thing I'd ever take on was a Section 8 housing complex. I'd be too worried about getting car-jacked, held up, stuff stolen, mowing over used condoms and use drug paraphernalia PLUS I'd still have to worry about all the stuff above and about whether they are going to pay me on time.

No spank you! I'd rather you just come over to my house, kick me square in the yam bag and take $500 from me than take on a section 8 property.

Resi is where it's at here too. HOA is utter trash and lowball ville. Some commercial can be ok, but usually sane issue. I strictly go resi and love it.
