I tried renting the house out.. However the tennents the agent forund for me did everyhting EXCEPT pay the rent so I was left with no choice but to address an envelope to the bank and enclose the keys, and the title to the back lot. (Do not feel bad, I was trying to sell and the price I was trying to sell at ... Well, The loan balance, plus fees plus perhaps dinner at Arby's)
That said: I would say renting is likely your best choice, Get a GOOD realestate agent and good luck. Do be aware thought that save for non payment my tennants were great, They took good care of the house and in fact improved it.
My parents had a 2nd house they rented out.. 3 times.. One was a tennent I cautioned my dad against.. When he left we moved in with the very same tools and chemicals we used cleaning the barn and equipment (Industrial strength cleaners,, I grew up ona dairy/swine farm.. the 4-legged swine were cleaner than the 2 legged ones).
The next couple was advertised by relatives who said "She never has a hair out of place" TRUE. her hair was immaculate.. The house however... Same song verse 2.
The third was my Dad's foreman (He had taken a foundry job to help pay bills).. same song verse 3 they kept the dog in the house.
So be warned.. You treat the house like it is yours.. Tennants,, Not so much.
Home is where I park it!
