If you are overseas, then you should most definitely have a Property Management Company taking care of your home for you. They will market the property for you, screen your tenants, enforce the lease, handle maintenance issues, etc. Do not try to do this yourself. And do not rely on an Agent who does not have experience managing rental homes, dealing with tenants, and enforcing lease agreements.
Is it listed with an agent or property manager?
If not you might want to list it with the best property manager in the area?
Follow their recommendations for rent.....I know around here sometimes we walk into properties that are way overpriced and no good tenant seems interested at that price.
You can put up for sale and rent at the same time. Sometimes that can help find a different type of tenant too. One that might take better care of the home if they think they have a chance to purchase later.
Your agent should be able to send you a copy of the MLS sheet or provide you with an MLS number so you can verify. If you do not have the information, you can use my site to look up your house by address. If it is in the MLS you will find it that way. Go to http://www.mySATexas.com and use the property search feature to check it out.... or, when you first get to my site, use "FAST CLICK" right above the picutres of San Antonio and simply enter your house address.
