Hi, I actually do a lot of work with rentals in your area. It would help to know in -what section of Byram your home is located. A quick look at recent rentals in Byram appears to indicate it is absolutely realistic. However, I will tell you what I tell all the landlords I work with...if you put the house on the market for rent with a realtor and you do not get any showings after a few weeks, then the price is probably too high.
It sounds as though your home is probably best suited to an executive rental. A lot of people transferring into the area are renting these days rather than buying. And executive renters almost always work with a realtor so you should definitely consider that when making your decision on how to proceed.
I would be more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your options. Feel free to contact me at any time.
