@Teri Rose, we have had a good experience with renting. There are so many more people renting nowadays, that there really is a market from rental homes. I was worried too, being out in a suburban area, but we have done alright. I was also worried about people the recking the place, but as time has past I am not so emotionally attached anymore, and I think your rent price will attract the right sort of person for your place. Yes the thought can be scary, but once you are underway with the process it isn't that bad and can even be rewarding. You just have to emotionally detach yourself an view it like a business decision.
