How do I start renting my house?

I think I decided to rent instead of sell, is this a good idea? What do I have to do to get my house ready to rent?

Nestor, The best thing you can do to prepare to offer your home for rent will depend upon the home, the condition, your local rental market, and various factors including your mortgage balance, expected maintenance costs, fees associated with the property, etc... You can certainly try to do this on your own, or you may consider hiring an experienced property manager who includes servicing the property maintenance as well as recruiting tenants when vacancies occur. Hope this helps.

Nestor, I think it is a great idea to rent instead of sell. Ofcourse it depends on your situation. To get your home ready for tenants I would clean and freshly paint the house. Then you can either list it by yourself or use an agent or property management company. Agents usually charge 1 month rent for a 12 month lease. Property managers typically charge 10-12%.
