Im new to this forum and hope I'm posting in the right section.
My real estate agent listed my home on MLS in Montreal Canada for $378,000. I would like to sell the house to a property investor who will rent it back to me. My motives are to sell the home to fund a dream project of mine. My other option is to sell the house and move into a rental, but I would prefere to rent my house back, which will save me a move.
I saw comparable homes nearby renting for between $1600 and $1800 a month. Is this a reasonable rent price for me to ask for? I would sign a 1 or 2 year lease, cover utilities and grass & snow mainteneance.
My real estate agent never sold a house as a rental before. My house is listed in the MLS residential section. So far only couples and families have visited my home. I think listing it in the commercial section would attract real estate investors, but my agent thinks that since my home was never rented out, it cannot be listed as a revenue property in the commercial section. Does this make sense? Where should I market my home?
Any advice or comments are welcome here. Thanks!
