One financial issue a lot of homeowners come across when selling a home is out of pocket or tax expenses. Homeowners who would like to sell may have to pay a tax expense in capital gains when the property sells. Renting can bring in income while waiting for the time period to lapse.
Property Managers can assist your Real Estate agent in managing and maintenance of their previous or future listings by keeping the property occupied and bringing homeowner monthly income while waiting to relist at a better future time in the market.
Whether you are an investor or homeowner the same principles apply. Both want or need a specific return. As a homeowner in this strong rental market, it makes sense to get the most of your property by renting. Investors are buying the homes of homeowners who will sell at low price in the real estate market.
Another thing to consider is the upfront cost it is going to cost you. To sell your home in this time you need to be competitive with the large inventory. This could cost you thousands in repairs. When you rent you may need repairs and maintenance, but not in the same sense. You want to make it clean and livable without having to break the bank to compete with other homes.
When considering what is best for you, speak with a Real Property Management professional to see what financially supports your real estate goals. (801)363-7368
