What's your tolerance? This current market has hit a lot of landlords too just because of renters defaulting because they too are losing their jobs. I'm a full time real estate investor and I implore my wife to keep a rental she has that she sees about the same cash flow each month. Cash flow is king, but for her, she hates the what ifs of being a landlord. So she's dead set on selling. So it's an individual decision, but real estate is all about leverage. Stick with a house you can afford, keep the rental and in the end when it's time to work no more, sell them all and buy a house that you are going to stay in for the rest of your life with all cash. Imagine how nice that's going to be. It's all for a reason, and security later in life is priceless.
