Whether it’s a new job or a personal decision, moving is stressful. When you have a home, it adds an additional layer to your situation. Do you sell it? Do you keep it? It’s always wise to weigh your options and consider what makes the most sense for your situation. For example, if you’re likely to move back, it doesn’t make sense to go through the trouble of selling something you’ve already invested in. Additionally, if you have grown-up sons or daughters, you may want to consider allowing one of them to take care of it. You should also consider the benefits of renting it out while you’re away.
We’ve mapped out three reasons to consider renting your home instead of selling it, all of which will provide you with long term advantages. Take a look:
1. Additional Income or Income to Supplement Your New Cost of Living
A rental home can help you while you are living in a different city. Given that El Paso’s cost of living is affordable compared to other cities, you will either bring in income that helps you afford a new home or apartment, or you’ll have additional income. Many homeowners have used a rental home as their way of paying off debt or saving for their children’s college funds.
2. Increase the Property Value
With a thriving real estate industry, there’s every reason to keep your home. It is likely that the value of your home will increase each year, depending on where it’s located. If your home is located in a desirable area, why not allow it the property value to increase while you’re away? You can rent it until you’re fully ready to part with it and you’ll benefit from the higher sale.
3. Benefit from the Tax Deductions
If you’re not already aware, there are tax benefits of renting your home. So even if you’re not bringing in the income of a rental home year-round, you can still benefit from the tax deduction you’ll receive.
