Remember it's not always about 'top' rent...short term rentals compared to long term will mean a lot to you when you move away. I am not talking about 3 months to 6 months or even a year. I am referring to a possible long term tenant that will like your home and rent scale to stay longer.
Of course the smart rule as a landlord is to never agree to a lease for longer than a year...you can always extend the lease after you confirm your tenant is responsible.
If you are moving more than a few hours away, consider finding a property manager to support you in the event problems arise.
Property management is not for everyone and many of my clients have sold their investment properties and reinvested. Because home values are up...you may choose to sell and buy where you are moving to.
Best of luck to you.
