Yes, if you cannot afford to sell, rent it out, become an accidental real estate investor like me....it could be a great thing.
Talk with a CPA, then email me with questions.
Hope this helps,
Some of our customers in a similar situation are finding renters by discounting the rent amount with the understanding, up front that the home is for sale and the may be slightly inconcenienced during showings. We recommend advanced notice for showings. It seems to work.
