Do you make 'too much money'?
It's just an issue of inconvenience I've dealt with while apartment hunting. Less than 3 years ago, before I got my current apartment, 2 different areas turned me down. The reason being that my income was too high. I told her "If I did make too much money, I wouldn't be trying to move in here". As a single guy, I get the biggest chunk of my pay taken in taxes. On top of that, there is no special help or Section 8 for me. Single moms, can get a subsidy and pay part of the rent. I have to pay the rent in full.
