Default How to rent your house

Anyone know how to go about finding a company to rent my house? I understand that there are companies that will collect the rent and have rental agreements, and take care of the paperwork, in exchange for a fee.

Anyone know what these companies are called and/or a good way to find one?

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

It's called a property management company. We use a local company for a house we own and rent out, and it has been well worth the cost. They handle everything, from finding a tenant, to making sure they comply with their lease, arranging for repairs, etc.

We found them through a conversation with a neighbor who had a rental house. They are a real estate agency and also manage investment properties for absent landlords. I think personal referrals really are your best bet.

The place we use takes 1 month rent + 10% of the other 11 months. Works out to be 17% of whatever it makes.
