What is your agent advising...and what was the little feedback received--keep in mind that a home is worth what someone is willing to pay for it; it doesn’t matter what the seller needs or potential buyers can afford to spend. Market conditions do matter as does the immediacy for a transaction to take place--review comps with your agent--recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, if price needs adjusting, adjust accordingly and be competitive; also review marketing strategies--make sure your exposure is maximized, if not adjust accordingly as well---again, your agent can best advise. ... more

If you redo the countertops it may not match the rest of your kitchen--instead consider the basic cosmetics first for the entire house--fresh coat of paint if needed, neat, clean, clutter free, remove or reposition any bulky furniture, sparkling clean foors, remove old carpets if applicable, etc. and don't forget about the exterior curb appeal--remember to price your property on target for today's market. ... more

I'm assuming since you are looking to rent your property - you own another home to live in? I'm not sure what your carrying costs are for the house (if you still have a mortgage, taxes, etc.) and if so, will you be able to recoup your carrying costs from the rental income? If yes, then it may be a good idea.

I'm not familiar with the current rental prices in your area nor am I familiar with the Gloucester market. You should contact an agent in your area (some agents may also respond to this post) to find out the rental prices. Again, you should consider listing it for rent with an agent. I'm not sure how rentals are handled in your county but in North Jersey it is typical that the renter pay the broker fee thus causing the landlord not to incur any fees to list a rental. Hopefully an agent in your area will shed some light on that issue.

If you do not rent it? What will you do - list it for sale? You can list it for both rent and sale and should it rent before it's sold - withdraw it from the sale market.

Good luck.
