    I did this for over 2 years and would recommend to rent on your own. I had a pleasant experience. Use services as Rentalutions to post and create lease and application verification. Rent out while you are still in town. Keep a local plumber/electrician in the know. I only spent $60 in repairs in 2 years. I was genuine to my tenants and explained them that they can either fix the damage or pay for it. I also kept rent towards high end to attract right kind of tenants. I never had a vacancy in 2 years. I used smartlocks and cameras remotely to show the place and video calls to discuss while they were looking.

    Depends on number of rentals, easy to manage and travel to manage is tax deductible. Get a handyman on retainer. If you want zero hands on pay management company.

    I rent from someone who is remote. So I would presume it very much depends on the tenant.
