Best place to start is to hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent to represent you. EBAs represent home buyers only, and work to get you the best price and most favorable terms. You can go to NAEBA.org for a referral to an EBA in your area.
I'm an EBA and I wrote a book called "Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You". It will be the best $6 you've ever spent.
Best of luck!
-Do I own the property outright without a mortgage? If not, do I have at least 30% equity?
-If I lease it will it be enough to cover any mortgage that I may have, taxes, and insurance?
If you answer NO to any of these questions then it may be best to sell. Either way you should speak with a lender to evaluate your personal situation and finances.

This is a great time to rent homes - lots of folks out there looking for good rentals - but it takes a lot of time, energy and patience to be a landlord. Are you up for this challenge?
Something else to consider...if you have a mortgage on your current home, will it rent for enough to cover that mortgage and some extra for your trouble?
There is a lack of good homes on the market right now. Selling might be the better choice if my first two questions are not easily answered.
I would love to talk more with you about this! Please feel free to give me a call or email and perhaps I can offer more information once I know a little more about your situation.
Have a great weekend!
