To assure your HOA dues are being paid and your yard is kept in the condition you want, normally you pay for those outside of the rental agreement. However, you can negotiate whatever you want.
A local agent can give you an analysis of what is currently available at what price, as well as what has leased and for what price. If you use an agent, they will review the application, run the credit, get the items necessary for you to make a decision whether to rent to the applicant or not and write the lease agreement. You can try on-line resources if you want to do what the realtor will (or should) do. By using an agent to list it in the MLS , your home for lease should get more exposure.
if you are looking to buy a new home in the general area, you may want to consider using the same agent to help you with the purchase and the lease.
If you want to find out what the rent should be, contact a local agent who can run the report for you.
