Sterling is Hot right now. Condition goes hand in hand with price $. Location is a big issue also. I don't think you will have any problem renting it. But be carefull, you want to qualify the applicant (employment, good credit, references, etc.)

Thanks for your reply Maria. I advertised on craigslist but the response has been lukewarm. I also put in listings on Trulia, Zillow and Is there any other website you would recommend to get a greater response?

Price it right relative to condition - slightly below market even if you need a tenant in there quickly. Do you know your comps for the area? As important - know there is NO replacement for properly qualifying prospective tenants.

Get in touch with me if you'd like to know about my comprehensive leasing service.

Kind regards,

Now is a great time to rent. Spring and Summer market. Contact a real estate agent in your area to provide you with market comps and get it listed. Price it competitively. On your end, be sure it is in top notich condition. Ask your agent if there is anything he / she would recommend that you do.

Good luck,

Formula for that is = price it at market value (or below if you're in a huge hurry to rent it out) and market it correctly (i.e. in places where majority of renters look for rentals).
