It sounds like you have a very spacious and smoking place !!! I don't see why it would be a problem renting it. The rental market is super hot now !!! I'm sure that if you price it right, you can find the right tenant in no time. Remember...only rent to the right tenant....I wouldn't be surprised if you can rent it in less than a week. The decision of selling vs. renting depends on a couple of variables...If you will stay in the area, or plan to move soon, price at which you bought and can possibly sell your unit, and the difference between mortgage/taxes/maint/insurance payments and rental income you will receive from your tenant. I live a few blocks away from you, and can help you with any additional questions or concerns you may have. Contact me if you have any questions....(201) 927-6054, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck to you! Pedro.
Selling it will depend on how much you paid for the apartment, how much it is worth now ..if you stand to loose a lot of money or not...and how the market will perform in the next few years...
Yours is a very complicated question and the answer depends on too many variables

Yes, there is a market for renting your home. And my Livingston colleague below hit the questions that you need to ask yourself right on the mark as regards the evaulation of renting v. selling. I am a local agent specializing in the WNY market and, as every property is individual, would be pleased to have you contact me to set up an appointment to see your home towards working up a sale/rent pricing analysis.

So, what do you consider to be a "good" rental price?
I am not familiar with the Port Imperial market, but ...much will depend on whether you CAN sell it at a number that will cover your mortgage, and won't require you to bring money to the table...........the size of your mortgage will be the big factor.
In addition - are you willing to have it cost you money every month if the rent isn't enough to cover the mortgage payment?
Decide what your comfort level is between the 2 possible options......and then you will need a market analysis done by an agent knowledgeable in your area.
