  • Renting vs. Selling Your Home


    So you are looking to move out of your house. Maybe you are looking to move into a smaller space, maybe you need more space, or maybe you just need a change of scenery. If you are in any of these situations it is critical to know the pros and cons of renting versus selling.

    Determining whether your home is a good investment requires research and analysis and taking time to get know the facts. There is a lot to consider, and there are tools than can help simplify the process of renting vs. selling.

    Adding to that, consider these five tips when making your decision:

    • Look at current market conditions in your area and the demand for rental properties. Find comparable properties and look for what they have rented or sold for in the last six months.
    • Think long term and what the property might be worth in five or ten years. If the value of homes in your neighborhood are on the rise, strongly consider keeping the property and allow it to appreciate.
    • Calculate the monthly costs for maintaining the property. Whether that is a mortgage payment, homeowners association fees, or anything in between, finding the exact cost can be a telling factor.
    • Know that renting out your home is a commitment and not just a financial decision. A landlord has to collect rent, handle repairs, and often receives calls at inconvenient times.
    • Get your property ready to rent or sell, considering how much it will cost to upgrade your house. This can include painting, cleaning, or making big improvements like updating a kitchen.

    Whether you are looking to rent or sell, or maybe you are not quite sure yet, Reilly Painting and Contracting can help you in your decision making and in prepping your home for potential renters or buyers.
