Your first step should be to locate and hire a REALTOR, not just a real estate agent on an exclusive basis. Be sure your REALTOR has a minimum of five yearsâ€™ experience and 100+ transactions.Â
You have asked two different questions. First you said you need to "sell your home quicikly", and then you asked about renting it. You will more than likely find a tenant quicker than you will find a buyer, and then you have to wait for the buyer to get a loan approved. ( 4 to 6 weeks, on average.) So, it depends on what you mean by "quickly".
But you didn't say you needed to move OUT quickly; you said you need to SELL it quickly. Two entirely different things. One brings the equity into play, while the other one brings a monthly cash flow into play. You will need to decide which is more important to you.
The speed at which any given home will sell will usually depend on 3 things: Location, Condition, and Pricing. You obviously can't change the location. You can make the house sell faster if you improve the condition, especially cosmetics. And, if you price it below average for your neighborhood, it will sell quickly at this time of year.
The Bottom Line is: You need to contact an experienced Realtor to come over and evaluate the property for you. Writing questions on a website like this one isn't going to get the job done for you. You should select an Agent you want to work with, and then have them come by and inspect your property. Then, sit down and discuss your options. Some houses are selling within a few weeks; others may take a few months.

The price range of home that you're looking for is in high demand right now, but I think I can find you what you are looking for. The real question is about why you want to rent to own. Do you have credit issues that need to be cleared up before buying a home? Why don't you give me a call and let's talk about your specific situation, because there's really no reason for you to have to share all your personal information here on the Trulia forum. Depending on your current situation, I may have a loan officer that I can refer you to that is really helpful in evaluating a person's credit report and coming up with a plan to get you up the the magic FICO score required for a mortgage. She will monitor your progress and when the time is right she be ready to process your loan application.
I hope to hear from you soon if you think I can help you. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to be your Buyer's Agent when you're ready to get started. If you're not too sure about what a Buyer's Agent is, or what they do, please take a look at one of my new webpages. It's a work in progress but hopefully you'll find some helpful information.
