If you have a place that you only live in part of the year, you may want to consider renting it out the rest of the time. That way you can get some income to make your house payment, and you won’t have your home just sitting empty. Even if you don’t still owe on your home, renting it out for the extra money can be a great way to get cash that you don’t need to work for. A word of caution, though, in that you want to be careful who you rent to. Some people are much more careless with other people’s things, and you don’t want them destroying your home. A great way to find good renters is to use a property management company.

Because of a tight economy, a lot of people who have vacation homes can’t sell them, so they are renting them out. By getting a company to handle that for you, you don’t have to worry about where you are or what you’re doing. All you have to worry about is collecting the money that the property management company sends you and spending it however you like. Having a company manage your property isn’t free, of course, but the cost of it is generally worth paying for, since you avoid all of the hassle of trying to manage the property yourself. It can be particularly difficult to manage property if you don’t live nearby.

You can also have repairs scheduled and taken care of, and you can avoid the worries and problems that come with allowing a piece of property to sit empty and vacant while you’re living somewhere else. There’s too much chance of your vacation home being broken into and/or otherwise vandalized if you leave it empty for months and no one is around to check up on it.
