Selling your home for a relocation or job transfer


Congratulations on your next big adventure! Relocating to a new neighborhood, whether it’s for a job, to be closer to family, or simply to try something new, can bring many exciting new experiences. But, selling your home can be stressful, especially if you’re on a tight deadline. You might even be considering renting out the property if the relocation is temporary. 

What are your options?

Consider Landlord Responsibilities

Keeping your home and renting it out to a tenant has some potential benefits, including:

Income: You could charge enough to cover the current mortgage payment (if any) or set a slightly higher rate for some additional monthly income. 

Keep the home: If you opt to rent the house, you’ll still have a home to return to if or when your job reassignment ends.

However, if you’re moving out of state, being a long-distance landlord could be potentially problematic. Some things you’ll need to consider include:

Collecting rent from a distance: It’s much more challenging to get rent from tenants if you’re not nearby. You’ll likely need to hire a management company or ask a friend or family member to take care of collecting the monthly payment. 

Maintenance: Hiring a company to manage the property would make this easier, but it will take away from your investment profits. 

Handling bad tenants:  One of the most challenging problems landlords face is difficult tenants. When you rent out your house, you risk property damage from the tenants or their pets. If you’re not nearby, it will be more challenging to communicate and handle these issues.
