If you rent you are hoping to land a tenant that will pay on time, keep the place presentable, maintain the up keep of the house for you. Now, it is not as gloomy as people say. But, there is a lot fo work involved in renting. You are basically on call for any repairs that need to be done to the house. Make sure they pay the rent on time, and that they are keeping the place in reasonable good condition. I have had good luck with tenants like thsi in the past. However; I also have ahd tenants that were the opposite as well. The cost fo that at time s made me think if it was worth it. You have the issue if somethign happens and they do not pay the rent, while you are evicting them, can you cover that mortgage paymetn as well.
The choice is completely up to you. It depends if you are comfortable with the upkeep of being a landlord or not.
Selling your home is an action which can't change. It's over and done. You will lock in today's value and free yourself up to move forward onto your next purchase.
Renting may allow you to recover some value IF, you get good tenants who pay on time, take reasonable care and you are not surprised by any unexpected expenses such as leaky roofs or plumbing or failing water heaters, furnaces or other appliances.
Renting is a part time job and should only be considered if you are willing and able to do what it takes to maintain the property, screen tenants, demand rent and take action when/if renters fall behind or violate terms of your lease.
Talk to some people you know who have rentals to hear about their experiences and decide if you feel this is a good fit for you.
