Renting can make sense but month to month if you still really want to sell in the long run. Best tenants work for a living, pay their bils and have good credit. Maybe owned before. Ask lots of questions and get references. Not from their last landlord, he or she will tell you anything to get them to move along if they are slow, no pay. And have a habit of piling up 2200 pounds of garbage, debris you will have to handle the same way. Ask the next to last landlord. History is your best predictor.
