The Price of Bureaucracy: Removing Section 8 Landlord Pain Points through the Investment in Technology Hits Amazon & Barnes & Noble in late August

Dothan, AL — August 4, 2022— Addressing the future of affordable housing in America, Dr. Michael C. Threatt points to the phenomenon of landlords leaving the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. The mass exodus of thousands of landlords from the Section 8 program is a key factor in the affordable housing shortage in America. The Price of Bureaucracy: Removing Section 8 Landlord Pain Points Through the Investment in Technology is the answer to the strained relationship between landlords and public housing authorities (PHAs). It is the perfect time for this book based on the recent Section 8 policy reform legislation, the Choice in Affordable Housing Act, the House bill (H.R. 6880) early this spring, and the identical Senate bill (S. 1820) from summer 2021. The book not only correlates with this legislation but reinforces the latest Moving to Work (MTW) Landlord Incentives cohort selection of PHAs.


Dr. Threatt felt compelled that this was a perfect time for a "superhero" moment to solve this problem and address landlord pain points from a multifaceted perspective. This book is based on Dr. Threatt's research on landlords' opinions of improving the Section 8 program by streamlining operations through technology to cut the bureaucratic red tape. The book also provides innovative solutions to increase landlord satisfaction, improve communication, and enhance customer service to cultivate better relationships between PHAs and landlords by investing in technology.


Dr. Threatt is also known as The Section 8 Landlord Coach™. He is a subject matter expert (SME) on the Section 8 program and provides real estate investment strategies for Section 8 landlords. Dr. Threatt is the principal and CEO of Elevate Housing Solutions, LLC, headquartered in Dothan, Alabama. In addition, he is an executive-level affordable housing professional with vast experience working within the real estate industry's public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Currently, he is the senior vice president and COO at Dothan Housing. Dr. Threatt is featured in the 2022 Top 100 People in Real Estate Magazine and joined the Birmingham Business Journals Leadership Trust in 2021.


Dr. Threatt’s deep knowledge, as well as his multifaceted roles as a practitioner, consultant, and REALTOR®, allows him insight that few others have. Additionally, he understands what it’s like from the other side, being a landlord himself. His own experience gives him an extra edge when it comes to educating his clients on how to invest in REOs, foreclosures, value-add, short sales, tax liens, and turnkey properties to maximize their return on investment (ROI).
