The rental market has improved. There are many people renting their homes because it is difficult to sell. You can get the local newspaper and see what homes are renting for , and advertise your home and try to rent it your self. When you find someone interested , make sure you take an application, check out their references and job , landlord and credit check, or get an attorney to help you.
or you can call local realtors. You can decide whether you want the agent to just find the tenant and draw up the lease or you want the company to also manage the property. Call three companies, ask them their experience in rentals and their fees. Tim and Michael have given you good advice.
