Reasons to Rent Out Your Home vs. Sell

Reprint from Elk River Star News & Anoka County Shopper, "Real Estate News by Stephanie Danielson" - 6/25/16 issue.

When your current housing situation requires a change, selling is the most popular option.  But in some cases, converting your home into a rental property makes financial sense.

Listed below are three factors to consider as you decide if renting is an option for you.

1.) Is your move permanent?  If not, it may be cheaper to rent out your house and move back in when you return, rather than paying sales commissions and fees to sell and then buy again.

2.)  Asset appreciation.  Monthly rental rates are at top dollar and demand is high.  This scenario puts you in a win/win position!  Your collected rent pays down your mortgage, while your asset value increases!

3.) Do you need more tax deductions? When you convert your home to a rental property, you add tax advantages including depreciation.  Visit with your tax accountant for details.
