Hello Anita, I too am military and was active duty. We were faced with the same dilemma on multiple occasions. Whether to keep this property as a rental or to sell it depends upon your level of comfort with risk. Here's the question - If your property were to go vacant, how long could you make the payment without receiving rental income? Secondly, if the property were to go vacant and you had to make repairs in order to secure another renter, would you be able to do so? If the answer to both of these questions is YES and you are comfortable with taking risk, then perhaps you could have a successful investment experience provided you could find a great property management company. If the answer to these questions is NO, then you probably should sell. You do not want to damage your credit because you could not make the payments during any vacancy in the property and perhaps damage your military career because your commanding officer is being contacted due to lack of payment. I had an out of state investor that bought properties all over the country and she has had to get help from me and other real estate professionals to negotiate with the banks to accept less than what is owed on them rather than go to foreclosure. My goal here in answering this question was to help you make an informed decision and I hope that I have done that for you. Good luck and thank you for serving our country!!!!
