Thinking of Renting Your Home ?
TAXES – As an owner occupant of your present residence, you are privileged to a tax rate which is 30 percent lower than that of a non-owner occupant. Typically, you can only claim one residence as your principal residence, and you must live in it.
RENT – Your condo will only rent for true market value – not what you “want” to get in rent. Consider what you will be paying in principal, interest, taxes, insurance and your monthly association fee and decide if that amount will be covered by your rental rate.
DAMAGES – You can only collect 1.5 times the monthly rental rate for a security deposit.
ASSOCIATION – Ask your condo association if they permit rentals. You will also be responsible for making sure that your tenant abides by the association rules.
MANAGEMENT – since you will be relocating out of state, you will want a professional to manage your rental. The typical cost is 10% of the monthly rent. Edward Surovell Realtors offers the following professional services, and I can help you with this:
