What is up with the higher taxes in TX? How can I make this choice without feeling pressured or guilty?

Asked by Cassie Horn, Augusta, GA Tue Sep 11, 2012

I seriously need to make the decision on whether to keep my home in TN or to rent it out. Being in Iraq makes things a little rough. Making the decision to relocate to TX isn't easy either considering the fact that TN has lowere property taxes and TX; you get more home for your money.

I can't tell you which state you should live in, but I can give you a great resource that may help you decide whether it is best for you to rent or to sell your home in TN. I used the zip 37042 in order to get these stats, but you can put any zip code in and it will produce the stats for that area.

Click the link to learn things like; median sales price, average days on the market, and how many houses are listed in that area.

If you choose to place your house up for rent, I can get you in touch with a property manager that can help you out.
Whatever you choose, please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions.

If you are not coming home for at least a few months, you could always rent it out until you get back to the States. There are sometimes renters looking for a shorter term than 1 year. Then you can worry about it when you get back.
