To decide whether you want to rent or sell your home is ultimately a matter of needing the equity out of your home or not. If you don't need the proceeds from the sale of your home then you can find a local real estate agent who will help you find a good tenant. If you're not sure what your home could sell for, call a local Realtor and have them come out to your home and complete a Comparative Market Analysis. It doesn't cost anything to have most Realtors do that for you. Good luck!
