Property owners and managers can reach thousands of potential renters through NCHousingSearch.org, a statewide marketing service for affordable rental housing. NCHousingSearch.org is cosponsored by the NC Housing Finance Agency and powered by Socialserve, a nonprofit that has worked in the Asheville, Charlotte and Greensboro areas for several years.
This free service allows you to highlight the amenities and features of your property, provide photos and list eligibility requirements. Landlords can also take advantage of several built-in property management tools. The site is currently recruiting new landlords to list properties. We strongly encourage property owners and managers in our programs to list with NCHousingSearch.org.
Through NCHousingSearch.org, renters can search your up-to-date property vacancies, get maps and directions, see pictures and obtain contact information. Individuals without Internet access can request information to be mailed or faxed to them at by calling a toll-free number, 877-428-8844. This bilingual call center is available to assist both landlords and tenants with listing and locating properties.
By listing your property with NCHousingSearch.org, you may be eligible to participate in the Transitions to Community Living Voucher (TCLV). Tenants using these vouchers are referred through local management entities/managed care organizations (LMEs/MCOs) and receive services to help them maintain their tenancy. You benefit with timely rent deposits and reimbursements for damages, broken leases and more. To learn more about TCLV, email TCLV@socialserve.com or call 1-866-973-3147.
To list your property, go to NCHousingSearch.org and click on “Register to List Properties." After a short registration process, you will be called by Socialserve within a few days to help you set up your listing.
