In TODAYS rental marketplace I'm finding that MOST folks that are wanting to rent/lease are pretty leary of the properties that are not being leased by an Agent/Company. Reason being, there have been horror stories circulating! Such as the scenario of good people finding a great place & giving their first months rent & deposit to what appears to be a pretty decent landlord/owner. Then 3 months down the road, they find out that the home is being foreclosed on and of course their security deposit and money that THEY'VE paid for rent - is just GONE.
Research your area and find someone that stands out. They will do more to advertise your place and help you get a really good tenant! After they find you the tenant, you can menu out what you'd like them to do for you! You could still manage it yourself, if that's what you'd like to do! OR, they can help get you in touch with a FULL managing company to take it ALL off of your hands. Best of luck in your endeavours!... more
