You probably spend a lot of emotional energy on this - very unproductive.<br/>2. It is very difficult to rent long distance. &nbsp;Count on fees adding up to more than 10% per month - plus maintenance costs - plus carrying costs. &nbsp;AND you lose any homestead exemption you have for local ad valorem tax.<br/>3. You can limit your financial exposure by selling. &nbsp;No worries about insurance, damage, unexpected repairs.<br/>4. It is a sellers market right now - first time in a long time - and we do not know what the future holds. &nbsp;Real estate prices might tank again when the fed stops propping up the economy.
