You find yourself in a situation where you are leaving your home. Perhaps you received a promotion at work and need to relocate, or your family has outgrown the house and you’re looking to upgrade, giving yourself and your family more space. Or maybe your children have left and it’s time to downsize. Whatever your circumstances are, you find yourself faced with making the decision to either sell your home or keep it as a rental.
It’s the time of year that so many of us look forward to and welcome with open arms.
