Lynn,

Good for you to ask questions before taking the plunge.

The issue is what do you need? Another way to ask is what is your motivation?

If you need the money or are in fear of a foreclosure, then the general answer is to sell. DO NOT be rushed into a sale because of a possible foreclosure action. Talk with your lender first! A remodification of your loan is an avenue to pursue.

As for a rental, are you prepared to be a landlord? Will you mange the property yourself or hire a property manager? Do you realize your taxes will change? Do you know you need additional insurance? The list goes on, however you need to make sure you know what you might be getting yourself in to.

Also, you will not get rich by renting out one property. You will get someone else to pay the mortgage. Also, know that whoever lives there will not take care of the property as you would so do not have great expectations.

So again, what is your motivation? Please consider your options with great care.

Hope this helped.

Best wishes,

Would have to see the house to know for certain, but it's a good question and one worth pursuing.

It completely would depend on the home location, specific neighborhood and what you would prefer to do.

If either scenario works for you, I would suggest listing for sale as well as for lease and see which bites first.

I'll be happy to assist if you are not working with a Realtor.
